Default I have a hoist now

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

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.

I'm all over giving a hand with the install. Let me know when it is on the way.

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.

McGee Co here in town sells Rotary, and are pretty good to deal with.
