That sure is a nice lift system.
I could make good use of one of those in my garage.

What are you going to do for card if you aren't sitting, standing, crawling, doing sit-ups, etc? :eyeroll:

Nice tool Bob, I'm sure you will get lots of use out of it.

Had the time today to put the lift togather.Only took a hour or so to do and it was worth it.It took about 10 seconds to lift the tractor up around 6 feet.

VERY nice Bob! That would lift my heaviest GT w/weights and filled tires! My Son bought a lift table, but with yours the underside is completely open for working on the "under innards". The table lifts only 42" too.
Hey Bob, if you had of bought a pair & given me one, you'd have gotten a discount & saved some money on yours! :bigrofl:
