Electric Power Hoist
I needed a way to lift heavy loads in and out of my pickup. Table saw 600 # Band saw 275 # Drill press 140 #
I purchased this hoist from Cabela’s and the swing out hoist frame. I

Made in china sold by Cabela’s, Grizzly, Harbor Fright and others.

decided to mount the hoist on a galvanized pipe, a 4’ section in the ground 2’ deep with 2 60# sacks of concrete, a coupling with a 10 section on this giving me a 12’ vertical support attached to the eve of the garage. The correct pipe size is 2 1/4’, with the line doubled, using nylon straps purchased from Grizzly I was able to unload the 600# saw with ease. I then set the saw on a mobile base and rolled into the shop.

This 880 lb. hoist helps you lift heavy, bulky items, and operates with a remote control that lets you stand safely away from the item you’re lifting. Electric hoist motor lifts at a rate of up to 33 ft. per minute.

Looks like a good tool, I will need one.

Have you tried mounting it indoors, because
I don’t want my garage roof to collapse. LOL

I use a 1-ton chain-fall hung from the beam above the garage door to lift loads out of my truck. Not nearly as nice as your installation, though! Great idea!
