    Did you lift with the tie-down eyes on the stick? A bit more leverage that way if so.

    i didnt hang it from those tie downs but i ran a chain over the stick and through the tie downs so it wouldn't slip.

    Safety is ALWAYS the key though.
    God bless,

    Once you get the wrecker, might as well add some armor to the collection also.

    You know you want to...

    i think the gantry crane will be useful because i am thinking of building or buying a cnc plasma table in the near future so i'll be buying large sheets of metal that get hard to move from truck to storage to plasma table.

    i guess hobby. i've been around that type of work and used to have access to a full machine shop at work. I switched up my work arrangements, I'm full time remote now and I miss having those tools. so i'm now starting to build up my own shop. the cnc plasma would probably turn into a small side gig though because as far as i know, nobody in my area has one.
