I built this hoist about 10 years or so ago. As you can see here it does a pretty good job.
Inside the barn.
While I made allowances for the inside clearance, I forgot to double-check the door opening, which this thing unfortunately won’t make it under.
So far it hasn’t caused too many problems, since we have other means of getting heavy items in the building, but I’m satisfied that at some point I’ll need this thing outside.
I’m currently exploring several modification options.
