Thread: How to build a residential vertical lift?

  1. #11
    This where I got my inspiration.

    The tracks are barn door tracks. I welded them to a strong steel frame made of 2x3" steel tube. Then I made a platform and I've been using it for a few months now with no issues. I did upgrade to a used Coffing chain hoist that I bought on Craigslist. The HarborFreight hoists just weren't getting it for me. I don't think they'd cause you any problems just travelling 18" up and down. I can send you more pictures if you want.

    i hope you don't mind but trying not to reinvent the wheel
    Home Depot man lift from ebay, I took the cage off, made an aluminum 5'x5' platform, max weight 500lbs, me in my powerchair are 430lbs, just have to make sure the batteries are charged.
