Thinking about strapping the disc onto a pallet with plywood on it. My neighbor who is willing to help load the disc has pallet forks, and I was thinking (I know, dangerous!) he could load it as an assembly, & it might protect the disc and the buyer's truck, and keep it from rattling around.

Anyone know the dimensions of the F-38 disc? Think this would work?

Mine is sitting on a pallet right now, as are all my implements, to keep it off the gravel floor in my shed. The disk is larger than a standard sized pallet (48 X 40), if that is any consideration for you or the new owner.

But it is fairly stable? Think it could be strapped to a pallet (with plywood on it) then lifted as a unit onto the pickup truck bed with pallet forks on a tractor?

Unfortunately it is alongside my tractor shed...grass and dirt.
But you are right...here at home I have used my engine hoist for unloading/loading quite a few Cub Express items...some pretty darn big! Those are the times when I wish I could remove the rail around my trailer! :?

With some creative cutting and welding, all things are possible.
