I realize most of my readers are ladies and don't know a hoist from a joist (just like me). We're heading to Platte City in a few minutes, but I came back to leave a link to an item like Cliff bought. Notice the prices, although Cliff says you can get a used one for $1,000 sometimes.
That's why he figured it was worth risking $100 to buy something he would use a lot: for instance, if he works on the blades on his riding mower, he'd lift it with this hoist. He has a hoist already, but it isn't electric.
To see the brand of hoist (it's a half-ton) we're going after, click HERE.
