I had time yesterday to bolt this back together and take a few pics. I told Toolpartzman I would post some pics on it. Just another modded hoist I have, but no concrete to use it on.

This is the truck bed hoist that I made a frame for to move engines around with. It has 1 1/2" steel casters tack welded to the base of the 2X2X1/4" wall tubing. Does a good job for things too heavy to lift by yourself.

Looks good Kenny. As I get older the number of things I can't lift by myself seems to be growing faster than my age.

I see what you mean Kenny. That would work pretty slick also if bolted to concrete and it appears the yellow portion would lift off out of the way.---LeeB

Glad I helped you, Rick. That's what posting a lot of these type of things is all about.

Is the R-11 there to pull the lift into the shop or is it there to get lifted?

It's just there. I moved it under the roof after the pics. Hopefully, we'll have it running this week.

I'm at that point myself. Seems as though I have to hook everything up to something to get it moved.

Nice modification Kenny.

I liked the idea so well Kenny, I bought a similar truck hoist off CL this AM.:worshippy1: Its in Texas, but I have to make a trip to Dallas Sunday anyway and back Mon. Probably won't play with it til next weekend ,as I have to run back to Birmingham Tues. I think I'll rig up a way to use it both in the shop and as a yard wrecker. Got to go find a donut for my drivers seat as this will be a long week.----Lee

OK finally pics. Thankx again for the ideas Kenny--I've got a few options for this. I want to be able to mt it at various spots and one portable. I also have a few air and misc hyd. cylinders to automate if I choose. The extra cylinder in the teardown pic is a lift cyl off a Toro groundsmaster that may have identical stroke.

I guess I got lucky. Its only been used a couple of times.
