Top-Hoist still a favored hardtop hoist?
« on: January 24, 2022, 20:23:11 »
After reading an informative string from last year on hardtop hoists, I am ready to order an electric hoist from Top-Hoist. Your thoughts, pro or con?

Top-Hoist was one of several hoists liked by those weighing in last year. Here's their site.

I forgot his Web name, I believe it is Raymond out of Jacksonville Fla.
He made one for his garage and it was simple and it works.
I have pictures I made many years ago with my 35mm camera but I do not know how to show it here.
So if someone can contact him and ask to send pictures.
It would save a lot of money.
