Everyone can start signing up now to come down to the shop and use the hoist :D

Actually, I am still planning to get one soon. Whoever wants to sign up to come down and help with the install can have first dibs on using it.

Haven't bought one yet, but I'm looking at 10K to 11K capacity units. Most of those have a lift height of 6' 6" to 7'. I'm 6' 4" so I won't get something I have to walk around under it all hunched over.

Randy, If you end up with mine you will want a fork lift or skid steer most likely to aid with setting it up. It is a very heavy commercial unit. I don't think you could get enough hands on it to raise it safely without a machine of some sort.

For sure. I do have a tractor with a front end loader that will lift 800 lbs. If that isn't adequate I have access to a skid steer.

But after all, the egyptians raised the pyramids using just manual labor. If we get 10-15 RS'ers, several cases of beer and a whip we'll be good to go. :D

You break out the whip and I am running, what you and the :Princess: do in the bedroom should stay in the bedroom.:D

Go check out the lift that Mark has it looks great and holds his stuff fine.

Very nice, but I'll bet that hoist and the cost to install it into the floor is way more money than what I'm planning to spend.

you may want to watch some youtube videos that Mohawk has on it site and see some of the different types of construction before you plop some money down. What I saw was plain scary on some of the lifts that are sold today.
Look to Auctions, you may be able to find a used one in great shape for less money. Most of the time, you need to come and take it out.

I did it in new construction, so the install wasn't too bad. Friggin' deep hole, though. The similar 2-post's are less expensive, for sure. I just found the best internet price I could, then negotiated with McGee.

BTW, if you don't hang out there, GarageJournal.com (http://www.garagejournal.com/) is a great place to learn from others about this stuff.

Yep, I've read pretty extensively on everything that is out there. I've narrowed it down to one or two if I buy new. Corbet has a used industrial quality 2 poster available here in Denver so thats my first choice if it's in good shape.
