lifting heavy objects

I'm thinking about building a patio or floor for
a gazebo with a single granite slab. They are
easily available in my area.

I calculate it could weight 4,000 lbs and think
a regular backhoe is limited to maybe 1,500.

Would a large front-end loader or excavator be
able to move this (something I can rent) or should
I call a crane service ?

I can borrow a flatbed trailer or rent a uhaul
auto carrier so I'd only lift it off the trailer
and place it on the ground.
