Hoist is functional! I know it's gotta Dodge on it. It's the heaviest thing I own.
you do know the most important test of any lift picking up any object dont you ?
3-4inch fully off the floor and stop . push down on the front bumper and try and rock it off the lift .
if its going to fall its only falling 3-4inches to the shop floor .
take this advice from a guy who years ago had a bad day at work . . . .
and a tripod jack for the rear for LONG vehicles to stabilize them . also a warning tag for the down lever on the lift . WARNING JACK IN THE REAR . so you dont have a oh crap moment.
Oh ya my shop teacher 25+years call it the shake test and its always stuck with me.
I've been on a search for a good tripod too.
Well thats one way to do it.
Car is on the ground, all four tires. Can't argue with results.
hope someone of decent brain power inspects the lift for damage before next use . . .
that is what I was thinking. Must be hard on the lift?
Why a tripod? I use single dead man as I call it to hold up those long sagging trucks.
I even put it under my own K5 at work.
those work fine also .
Where do you get your dead men at? Or do you kill them yourself?.......
Visited my friend's shop today,who recently got the new to him Rotary lift...
Said he loves it,but has one minor thing he hates about it..
The motor, pump & controls on his old P-O-S Global lift were on the right side--and the Rotary has them on the left side..they had to extend the wiring to reach,but that isn't what he dislikes..
He dislikes the fact for the past 10 years he's become so used to walking to the right side to lift or lower a vehicle,he can't seem to adjust to it being on the opposite side--its been over a month and he still "forgets".....I watched him do it about 4 times in a few hours...old habits are hard to break...
some newer lifts can be set for both side controls .
You like um with rigor of soft and mushy? Pre or post rot? Fresh kill or ripe after a few days in the sun? Just curious? lol sick bastard lol! See, my cancer is trying to make me one of any one of those morbid descriptions. But it's funny to me cause I'm joking see, in fact , See the guy laughing there. He's crackin up! Just look at him ! Leek at this fool. > . We're all headin there.
post rot and ripe keeps people the **** away from my stall. needed one the other day in my stall when I told the sales guy car would get done faster if they would quit interrupting my work ( little more rudely) did not see him rest of the day.
Funny people at my work know I can be a asshole but love my work cause I get the job done. Just a shame can not work near as good/fast on my own shit.
