Yeah.

The fire guy waited in his car for 6 hours while we worked. Came in, temporarily hooked up shut off #2 and said he had to come back on monday to finish. Soaking up the OT I guess

Took one out like that when I was an apprentice and we had to pack it out up stairs. I think it was a 6" though not an 8. Either way we completely disassembled it into pieces and even then the 1st and second check body took two men to carry. Good times.

Actually now that I think about it we used an appliance dolly for the check bodies as they were too awkward to carry up the steps

Luckily we were in a sprinkler room that led to outside.

We did the same thing, stripped all parts out of it down to a carcass and used dolly to get it out of the room.
