Same here.

We had to get mine off of the truck as well so my neighbor and I built "forklift" using some steel tubing I had and the bucket on his tractor. Set it on the driveway and then picked it up with the hoist.

Some 1" thick rubber pads under the feet will work much better than the pallet. Some places sell them but if your near a grain elevator or something similar you can find old belt material to make your own.

Improvise, adapt, and over come! It's all mind over matter! You might even come up with an idea for the home made garage tool's that work forum.

If you leave it on the pallet you could have water cleanup issues when you drain the condensation out of the bottom of the tank.
