Using only 4 people to lift a complete oven is highly dangerous and asking for trouble IMO, use lifting equipment.

After being pretty nervous about doing this, and looking all over for different options, I finally broke down and rented a forklift. Myself and the operator slid my Primavera 70 off the pallet and onto the forks.

The stucco that covered the edge of the styrofoam broke off some of the stucco around the base, but FB says they are sending me a patch kit, so no biggy.

Once I had the oven hovering over the prepared cement stand, I placed 4 large blocks of ice I purchased at the grocery store under the oven and lowered the oven onto the ice. That was around 10 am. I then monitored the oven for the rest of the day as the ice slowly melted. I had to nudge the oven into place a couple times, but it settled very evenly. Whew! Then on to the curing!

What's it cost to rent a fork lift like that?

for future reference-the best method i have seen here is an engine stand. much cheaper and would allow more options to place the oven. Although, the ice is really clever.

Do you have a link to the engine stand idea? I'm having a hard time visualizing how that would work?

Probably, though the layout of my outdoor kitchen and the posts that will eventually support a roof didn't work too well with the engine lift idea.
