    You are correct, James. One is a Maxstar 150STL and the other is a Spec 375-Xtreme.

    Not much of a welding project but a project just the same.

    I was having difficulties getting some of the heavier pieces of scrap metal out of the bin at the scrap yard. The bin was made up from an old tanker trailer cut in half. I struggled for about an hour the last time trying to get a piece out of there that I was interested in that weighed 150 lbs.

    I had a cheap winch at home that i decided to fasten to my trailer hitch in case I ever needed a little help over at the scrap yard again. I rigged up the power to the trailer plug-in. I then decided latter on to see if i could fasten my contraption to my shop ceiling to use it there when not in use on the pick up. This is what I came up with.

    That is a winch and not a hoist.....................be careful when it is carrying
    weight............it was not designed to.

    You're absolutely right, in no way will I be using this for anything heavy and whatever I will be lifting, I won't be laying under it that's for sure.

    Thanks for the advice

    Suggestion...........use it doubleline. It will slow the travel speed, double the lift capacity, and most importantly, it will hold more weight without the winch
    unwinding as they will under a heavy load.

    Hey Tiggerman,

    where did you buy that binder, and what kind is it.
    I am thinking of getting one for myself & I would like to know about yours so I could buy one and then build a stand for it.


    Thanks

    ................ Richard

    I got a grizzly bender similar to yours for X-mas this year! As far as fastening it down, I recommend using hilti or red head floor anchors. They work very well!
