A nearby shop is going out of business so I bought some of his stuff. Got a ton of Honda parts...... That I don't want nor do I need. But I wanted the cabinets/drawers they came in. And I picked up a slick vintage mower lift. That will make life a lot easier this year - I hope.

This one is a Lista. I like it.



And this is a pretty nice steel bin style unit. Not the greatest by any means but nice and rugged, steel bins.

And here's the lift table. It works on a screw drive system similar to that of a garage door. I haven't had a mower on it yet but it didn't seem to slow down much with a pile of lawnmower blades on there yesterday.

Lista makes a slick unit, I've got one of the smaller tool boxes.

Wish I could afford to get one of the bigger ones like that for smaller parts storage for carb
kits, fuel lines, and spark plugs.

Sure beats the hell out of cardboard bins and metal shelves.

I've got the cardboard boxes too, and they can be a pain sometimes. It's pretty cramped in here, I can't even back up far enough for a full shot :lol:

You lucked out. List price on a Lista like that would be around $2k. They are really nicely made and totally worth in the long run. We put 4 Lista boxes in our lift gate race trailer we made 4 years back.

I didn't pay $2k for the whole lot :D

Granted most of the parts should go in the dumpster, but that's not what I was concerned with. I got my money's worth from the fixtures.
