Hi,
Did anyone used an electric wire winch instead of a lift ?
I would like to use it in a container where the bike is in .
No problem to connect to the top .
Any experience/pics is appreciated .

Thanks,Ilan Gun Electrical supply

I've used a cherry picker to lift bikes before but never a winch like in your pic.

Here ya go. I have a MC jack as well as a table lift, but this is my preferred tire change method. Works like a champ.

Damm fine way to get shot . They tried that in Austin , worked for "sports bikes" , not so well on HD's . Too many damage claims . :spank:
There's a right way and a wrong way. Im trained and certified in heavy,light ,an medium. it can be done if done correctly with out any damage. all it takes is some num nut to give wrecker operators a bad name.

(witch by the way is the case in calif nothing but num nut's)

There is a right way...it's called a flatbed. :)

BTW how would you tow a new vette ????

Looks very nice. thank you for the Pics.
Are you using the winch for lifting the bike all way up (two wheels) ?
Thanks,ilan
The only time it lifted both wheels was to unload a Sportster from the bed of a pickup. Big rain, dry inside shop, no problem with the hoist. If my memory serves me, that is a piece of 1/8" wall X 1 1/2" square tubing spanning 3 trusses mounting the 880#hoist.
