ROTAXD: That table would work great if you were using a double line pull. Put a pulley @ the back of the table & run cable through it , then anchor cable right under winch. Will double it 's pulling strength.
X10SIV: Good first try buddy. there is always something that changes on the fly when building stuff. learn from the errors and fix your mistakes.
Michael Robinson: You always have a prototype in the beginning folks to work the bugs out. Sir nice start and I think it went well for what you had. And would love a drawing.
asssface2000: so this is what happened to badger after breaking bad.
prince gerald: Good idea, just needs a bit more work for safety.
bill lee: Thank you for your video. Very smart design.
Painter D: Good design, but looks a little flimsy. I'd go with thicker, stronger steel when making mine. And although I thought of the winch idea initially, I'm changing my design to using a screw jack instead, so I can use my drill to lift it and save on buying the winch. I will be making some type of locking mechanism for safety reasons also. Thanks for the vid!
Robert: To those who wants to build one like this.
Great job on this project. I would recommend minimum moving parts for safety if others are thinking of building one. To do this, build a table and a ramp out of wood. To save space, the legs of the table and the ramp can be detachable. Legs shouldn't be detachable if you're new to carpentry. Use the winch to pull the vehicle up. If it is a low-riding vehicle, use a "see saw ramp" with a winch attached. A manual worm screw winch or a hoist has auto stop can prevent free runs. I believe hoist is safer, but cost more. Build so bottom of your machine is accessible thru the use of 8x2 wood.
Robert: Grade 8 bolt is strongest for your safety. They often come in yellow. Hinges under the plywood deck is a plus for safety.
Robert: Someone mentioned you could increase power by adding a pulley at the table end. I 'd also recommend a way to lock so it won't collapse.I'm thinking a detachable "V" bar on the rear of the platform at an incline angle.
John Byrne: great job man, A little rough but that’s inventing for you, a lot to work out first time round but next time you know how to improve it, well done, I think I will give it a go myself thanks for the post
Don Catherman: good job bud a little refinen ul be good to go
rockethead555: "it is what it is" mm ..ok tighten the bolts man, do that first.. good project congrats
Ted Bryer: wow
heyscuba: "I was just dieing to see if this worked,..."
yeah, you almost died,.... dude,... finish the job before you test it,...WTF,...!
"Mommy,... daddy crushed himself and a BudLight under that thingy he was building,..."
pioboy97: thats cool man but i don't understand the need of lifting the mower where u can't get under the deck or take the wheels off. i would take the middle part out and put some cross bars in so u can get under the deck with out taking the deck off, but its cool and believe it or not it works
local378: Dude thats great would I reach under it, no but it does the job. You might think about putting bigger pins instead of bolts over time that looks like a weakness
mengle2004: Nice design.
