I found this turf equipment lift on eBay. I had a commercial lift at the last two shops I ran. Sure makes life a whole bunch easier with the older backs (and fronts). Small footprint would not take up much room.

That looks very handy. A little more than I can justify at this time though.

That does look like a handy thing to have around! I'd have to leave it outside though because my ceiling in the barn is only about 7'.

Thankx Bill, it has possibilities. I have parts of 3 made and just can't get past the design probs. That works pretty well cantelevered that way because the tower is angled- That may be the answer. :smilewink:

I have used this model lift and passed up an opportunity to pick one up in Florida for free. I would much prefer it since it portable but the price is way outside my wife's comfort zone.

I always thought it would be handy to have something large enough to lift a vehicle too , only have 9' 6" ceilings but being portable ( 1050lb? ) I could use it outside I bet if you had a concrete pad to lift from , Al

Whatever you guys work out, remember mine still has to have tummy access!! Seriously though, this is a favorite subject and it seems everyone has different needs. Portability,safety, indoor/outdoor, various frames. Lots of design trade-offs. I possible idea for the lift function is a simple trailer tongue crank at each end. Portable/storable but lacks lift distance. Al's link to the scissor lift is certainly one possibility but thats a little scary-the higher they go.

That's a good looking set up.
