    Exclamation satellite mast removal from roof

    Unbolted the satellite mast, repaired roof where it entered into the attic (the mast once held one of those old, huge dishes and is very heavy), now must get the thing SAFELY off of the roof without going over the roof myself. Suggestions?

    Try a heavy duty rope and a wheel, if necessary.

    This is how the ancient Egyptians (actually the slaves) raised and lowered heavy building materials.

    Use rope from the other side of the roof pitch. Set a ladder at a shallow angle and slide/lower it down a ladder.

    Option #2 - rent a lift for a afternoon.

    Option #3. Get 3 people. To to throw it and a 3rd to keep an area clear on the ground. Fix the turf where it lands.
