a good operator on that skid steer, take the railing off. and a couple of good backs might do it. coarse that may not be the safe way to do it.
Set the gin pole on the deck. Then I think a 12 or 14 ft 4x4 can then hoist over the railing. The T-section on the bottom of the gin pole (above link) spreads the load over the deck & joist.

I was thinking from the ground. that would work with the proper bracing.... believe I would run a line from the top of the gin pole to the peak of the roof of the house.

Set the gin pole back from the rail with enough room for the hood to set down between the rail and pole. Tie the top of the gin pole to the rail corners at the house (2 lines); then tie the bottom of the pole to the rail in front at the deck (to keep the bottom from skidding). Lean the pole so the top block is over & above the railing (not out past the railing). Lift the hood with a rope to pull the hood out from the railing. When above, let the hood swing in; then use two 2x4s leaning against the rail & deck as a skid to lower the hood to the deck AND on to furniture dolly(s). Two people should be able to do this easily.

But if you have access to a lift truck or 4 big dumb kids with strong backs (local high school line backers), then it should also be no problem. Just sit back drink beer and watch em work.

I've been needing a lift pole around the barn & property. So in the next week or so I'll be building a similar gin pole with a 4x4x 12ft to lift loads (1000lbs +) of my trailer.

when I saw the skid steer I figured you already had it figured out.
just get some soil out of the hill side and make you a ramp. about 3 ft should do it. the skid steer should go up about 8 ft. by itself. or start back about 20 ft. and push you up a ramp. straps will hold it to the bucket till you get it up. then put your soil back with a little grass seed. wouldn't take 15 minutes here in fl. but yalls clay up there I don't know.
