A hoist to make it easy

Recommended Posts

I WAS gonna say something about that Red Tractor in the background,,,,,,,,,,But your speaker was watching me,,,,,,

 

I like the snatchblock idea,,,((double pulley))  more power...

The RJ35 in the background doesn't need a hoist ... it can be lifted with one hand! :)

And if the left speaker didn't see you the right one will.  :ph34r:

I really hope there's a lot more than just the wood visible holding up that load....might want to inspect the center of the roof line now on the outside . I'd add a steel channel or I-beam across the whole garage , and double up the vertical supports at the outside walls ....no such thing as overkill with overhead lifting .

That is a great way to drain a fuel tank , sure beats other methods .

Have no fear ... the trusses are solid.

I built the trusses ... they're not metal plates at the joints.   

Every joint is plywood that's glued and nailed.

There's a 4x4 spanning and attached to 6 trusses, and a 4x4 on top of that.

The hoist is attached to 4 trusses.

I've lifted V8 car motors from the 4x4 without even a groan from above.

 

I actually lifted that tractor off the floor when I was paying attention to how the cable was going on the spool.
