I have a large cast iron lathe that was delivered into my garage. The lathe was destined for my basement. I built a sled made of plywood and 2x6s and waited for the next snow. When the snow came, I hauled wheelbarrows of snow into the garage and the basement. Then I used a block and tackle to pull the sled and lathe in the direction of the basement, the re-positioned the block and tackle to pull it into the snow covered basement floor. Once in place, I cleaned up the snow from the basement and the garage.
Some people called me McGyver, some called me nuts. Maybe too late in the year for you, but it was fun and I get a kick out of telling the story.
