So, my 10' x 30' equipment shed is packed full. There's no where left to go but up. I've got floor space for the big stuff, but anything that's occasional use and weighing less than a few hundred pounds needs to be hoisted the ceiling. This includes: Herd M12 spreader 25 gallon towable sprayer 42" aerator 24" walnut harvester etc. The only two items on this list of any real weight are the Herd M12, and my aerator (which will be stored with ballast weights removed). I found that I can pretty easily hoist and store the Herd with a 3:1 purchase block and tackle, as I rigged up in the photo below. I also set up two smaller 2:1 rigs to pull the lower link attachments up to the ceiling, so it hangs horizontally. No problem... but I do worry about rope breakage, possibly due to a mouse chewing on the ropes during winter. This thing probably only weighs 100 - 200 lb., but would kill someone if landing on their head. I was searching for blocks, rope, safety chains, cleats, etc... when I realized some of the cheaper chain falls on the market cost less than I pay for a single block. Rather than spending a few hundred dollars to hang each machine, I could probably do the whole rig with a $30 chain fall and some spare loops of chain. http://amzn.com/B004I0J3KG http://amzn.com/B000VQEN2E Does anyone have any experience with these, or could you suggest another? The weight of each respective machine to be hoisted is fairly low, but with me pulling equipment in and out of this shed on a near daily basis, safety is key. My original plan was rope for hoisting, and safety chains to be installed for storage, after hoisting. May still go that route, but that will probably cost more than these chain falls. Thanks!
