Been crazy busy since I "finished" my new shop. Year and a half in here and I'm still scrambling to get where I'd like to be.

Waiting on parts after today, I decided to knock this long awaited/needed project out. Wife took the kids to town soooo lets do this.

For years I used an air lift table but it always filled up with chit and took up to much space. A ceiling mounted winch has been my replacement plan.

The tracking is a sliding door unit. The rollers are the heaviest I could dig up for said track. Now I do not intend to drop in small block chevys with this but sitting a skid loader engine of lifting the front of a mower will be easy.

That's badass Mitch...!


My dad did a similar setup years back for lifting up his mower deck. His was fixed though, bolted through the main top beam. He bought a bigger and badder winch but he never got around to swapping it out. The small one is still in his barn and it'll lift just about anything ya need....

These little winches are sweet. They can be had for $80 and this one has a wireless remote. That is one of my main jobs for it, mower deck work.

Nice. Do you have a mojack? As stupid as it looked to me at first, it has really come in handy.



No, have looked at em many times but never pulled the trigger. Have a skid loader though :bananarock:

I recently bought a winch for my trailer, it's 12V and has a remote but it's wired to the winch. About 3-4 feet long I think. This will come in handy when those non-running flat tired POS tractors need to be picked up :D Simple hookup to the front of the trailer via carabiner or hitch clip or something. Don't have much of a need for one on the ceiling though, seldom need to hoist something. We do have a chainfall and barely use it.
