    I gonna comment despite the fact I dont know anything even owning one. I learned the hard way more than once. If you are comfortable with the risk, and it's so cheap and. Insider it a hobby like the casino then it's for u especially if you are not able to test it works.

    Looks like a job for a wrecker truck, tumble them over on old car hood and winch up. Other option is a bulldozer. All depends on the worth....

    They made a lot of these I think. I used them under Airco sheet and seems maybe under something else too but its been a while. They were reliable and worked on single phase where business was a concern. (this is a single model correct? )

  • Take the one in the last pic and retrofit it in to the front bed post like in the first pic or more like the second picture in this thread and it would not be too bad. I have done is simpler, Not sure if I can get a pic without lots of work and really need to get a sketch program but strong enough somewhat...

  • I dont think I have a pic,,, but I did something like that and my headache rack had a 2 1/2 inch bollard or so and I put a 2 inch pipe and didnt need much of an angle brace, did it to itself and simply hand rotated and used cumalong for hoist.

    Yes, I keep some welders in case I go in the biz. The loot I get for selling would be rather minor and having to gear up would be costly. I should have sold a couple while back when the market was high for them. I haven't checked lately....

    Retired and scrap it all before any majors. Doesn't mean we ignore a bearing or u joint only that it been running like that for years and not likely to be an issue.

    We done this both ways. 1 operation we decide to hit the obvious and accept the time risk. Way different for 30, 300, 3000 and 30k....

    I really agree with the brakes and oil change . Had a guy work for me I had to say enough.

    A guy named David Todd Geaslin has a good take on this and should be required for exec's.
    I spend most of my day on this. So many possible moves, so many mistakes.

    I am not sure I would replace mine if it let the smoke out tomorrow. I have other ways of doing the same thing. Only reason I dont sell it is it's so cheap to keep....

    We see board after board posts on this forum. When was the last time we see a blown up rectifier problem? I am sure it has happened but I cant recall or never had it happen or know anyone had it happen. Not saying it won't or cant but what's the realath,,, or the "facts"?...

    One of my old buds was a consultant for Ross Perot. He had his issues but when he put the cap on always went right to it and would say,,, that's a good idea but won't make or save them any money.
    while we might not follow that all the way all the time it's worth noting or considering up front....

    I see some things described as "cheap insurance",,, usually those are really a poor bet simply makes people feel better, makes them feel like they did something. "I am doing my 2x a year 30 hr oil change to tractor cause "I dont want the engine to blow up". While it won't...

    We got a problem with executive types in this country. Business adm I think they call them. They do not understand maintenance despite being in charge of budgets.
    The old saying was a stitch in time saved 9 but we know that's wrong. Minimum number being 15, avg being 40 and goes up from there...

    I had a neighbor stop a while back looking for or how to get some parts for a machine he paid 500 for 5 years ago and ran the living snot out of it,, , way beyond what any hobby type could or would. Some circuit board type stuff as I recall. Was complaining about price for part, wondering if that...

    I like the analysis. I am used to people dealing with the risk reward all skewed. The things they think fail don't and ones do they don't think will. All cheap China wrenches break and strip bolts
    it's actually hard to find a true junk wrench anymore and that snap screwdriver isn't much if any...

    I have a 300 synch. I suppose it's got them. Tossing more at it than the 200$ I have in to it would defeat the point of getting it cheap 20 years ago. Why hasn't it blown up yet if it's a sure thing? When might it happen and if it blows up likely to part it out considering all the compulsive junk...
