    SEA lawyer sorry things did not work out for you.

    30x48 my origional plan was to split it with half workshop and half barn, and the lift at the overhead doors. We had our house and barn put up at the same time(the house is a 4 box modular). The barn was supposed to have 2 raised trusses at the overhead door, but they were never put in, since I didn't have the lift and was running out of money it didnt matter.
    4 years later when I put in the lift I decided to put in inline with the sliding door 90 degrees to the trusses and have since modified one truss so I can raise my Pickup so I can stand under it, so it worked out for the better that the barn people left out the raised trusses I origionally wanted. I can have a car on the lift and still pull into my work area with another altho it is close.

    I will say it again the lift is the best $2000 you can spend on tools if you do your own work.

    My Ideal house is a 2 bedroom apartment on top of a 4 bay shop, my wife dosen't agree though.

    Well I ordered my Autolifters M80 hoist yesterday complete with 2 sliding trays and 8" casters. I am expecting it the first couple of weeks in January. I will post pics when I get it.
    Thanks all for the feedback and advice.

    Default Remember the garage in Herbie the Love Bug?

    Mike,

    Got the lift yet? Anxious to see it.

    Boss: I know EXACTLY what you mean - my IDEAL house would be an old firehouse, huge bays below and an apartment above... Know if only I could convince the one down the street to close down...

    I love my Stinger Lift. They were one of the original manufacturers and I think they are built better than some of the copy cats. I'm sure most are functional. Look closely in person at the shows. Note the welds and steel thickness etc. You'll love having one.

    Funny you should ask. I picked my lift up in Grand Forks,ND on Friday and set it up yesterday. It took 2 of us about 3.5 hours to set up and works like a dream. It is everything I expected and more. The casters work great for moving around the shop. I will post some pictures on my webshots album tonight.

    I finally uploaded some pictures of my new M80 hoist. The better pictures were taken with a conventional camera and I will scan them in this week.

    Default Looking good!

    Looks like now all you need is the Wayne-Dalton garage door opener and you'd be GOLDEN!

    I can't wait to buy one of these:

    I'm definitely gonna go with the M80. Have you tried the casters yet? If so, how easily does it roll around? What about with a vehicle on it?

    Thanks,
    Vaughn

    I have actually pushed the hoist to the back corner of my shop so it clears the opener. My shop is 40 by 30 with a 12 ft ceiling.

    Since I've been getting so many e-mails, I thought I post. I went with the pro-park 7 for $1900. They threw in the casters, the sliding jack tray, ramps, and three drip trays. The unit isn't the Cadillac of lifts but IMO it's definately the best value. The under ramp clearance is 5'8". Took me and my father-in-law about 8 hours. Probably could have done it much faster if I had the right metric sockets and wrenches - had to take a few trips to SEARS.



    They shipped the lift and a cherry picker for $130. I also used it to insulate the ceiling of my garage... ladder on top of plywood on top of lift. Glad OHSA wasn't around!

    The casters work great. I got the 8" hard casters. They take about 5 minutes to install. My floor is far from perfect and you can easily roll it with one person. Have not tried it with the car on though. Will repost when I do .
