CB, that thing gives you to clear 8'5" max at the bottom of the hook.
That makes it really tight to pull the rsd with that if ever.
You need more height too account for rigging slings or chains, in addition to the hydraulic lift cylinder.
And if with CAC pipes on the rad, hoses etc, it will not be a straight up pull.
It will twist, likely flop backwards.
Centre of gravity changes and therefore you have to be able to go higher. If you try that lift and it suddenly drops, you loose fingers if not expecting a change while lifting and you could damage the fins of the rad bad. Please don't do that.
Two tons is enough though, just get a higher lift point.
No matter the surface you work on, the bigger the caster, the better it will roll out of the way and drop onto the ground, trailer, just hang, or whatever.
You do want it to go in as easy as it came out too or easier, so maneuverability is huge.
Height and mobility is everything.
Not sure what that will weigh..guessing about 1200 max, if empty.
Size slings for that or greater. Hope they aren't frayed in any way also. That's when oops happens, when you least expect it.
Build your own hoist with what you got around or find stuff to make one cheap.
There are simple ideas that will lift that out of there for you, you should build something with the stuff you have around or can scrounge easy.
