A little lifting aid
« on: May 21, 2011, 05:13:16 PM »
As was pointed out, some equipment in my shop is getting a bit heavy to lift. That shouldn't be a problem any more :D



Needs some cleaning, and an oil shift. Might be a problem with sagging under load.


A few of the battery poles need a bit of attention  :poke:


But it is working. Even came with a charger :)


It was free by the way :D

I was very jealous about your obtaining this item and even more so when I read it was free. :bow:

Yeah, but it's too tall; he'll never get it in the door!   :scratch:

Easy! just use it to raise the roof. :loco: Or thinking latterally

Although you probably know the trick to clean corroded battery post others may not


just get a kettle full of boiling water and pour it on the the battery post dry off and re grease Vaseline is as good as any ( you can get some special stuff that changes colour when corrosion starts )
