John,
That's a great idea! I've been thinking about doing something like that a while, but kept putting it off. I may attempt making a hoist from scratch. A swing down out rigger or stabilizer would keep the trailer more stable. I'm going to look in my junkpile, I mean, "stockroom", to see what I have on inventory. An electric winch may make it easier to pull tractors, etc. onto the trailer.

Don't give the stealth Guy any more ideas. I had to lead shield my storage so it isn't on the radar.

Took a look while helping neighbor finish moving today. It is a dish network antenna. It was blurry in the picture due to it being so far in the background.

The only golf I shoot is done with a shotgun. I can drive pretty good, but the greens keepers really hate it when I putt.

It looks just like that homing beacon you showed me Bigdog. Cool that it does look sort of like an area of the golf course that I always avoided 8) 8)...stealthy as you say.

That crane is very nice John. Would you mind telling us about what the materials cost :?: :?:

Thanks

Mike

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

John, that is a really kool idea. I need to make one of those too for mobile use.

My back is absolutely shot so I built one of these to help with the lifting. It ain't pretty but it gets the job done.

TBAR I looked through the slide show and noticed that is a pretty impressive building to keep the rain off the shed.
I like the trailer too.

Dang and I thought it was to protect it from the hot Texas summer. one just never knows. Just how far back? Most of the guys I worked with from the Lone Star state measured distance in 6 packs?

TBAR, that set up looks great. If I ever manage to build a shop I want a setup very similiar.

Mike, the crane was $99.99 on sale at Harbor Freight (regular $129.99), welding shop charged $75 to make the mounting brackets, and the 4 inch angle I added later for the cross brace I had in my scrap iron stack. I can take some close up pictures of the brackets if you wish.
