charlie….... i agree with most of what i’ve heard, but i wouldn’t remove the motor. when i got an 18” rikon 10-340 from a woodnetter, it was in a basement accessed through a bulkhead covered 8 step staircase. we removed the table and wheels, strapped it to an appliance hand truck and two guys moved it up and out with no problem. that’s a 400lb. saw. yours is probably ~ 200, total and maybe 125-150 with the wheels and table removed, so it shouldn’t be at all hard for 2 able bodied men with an appropriately sized appliance hand truck.

lay it on it’s spine in the vehicle and secure it so it doesn’t tip when moving. here’s a little slide show of the BS in one of out trucks. i had help loading but got it out and moved into position alone using the hand truck shown

goog luck.
