I've heard that "Sky Hooks" are really cheap but hard to find. Maybe Jeff has some at his hardware store. I think they're usually stored next to the checkered paint and 3rd gear oil.

If it was built in the last 10 years don't expect it to work right.

I've used the ones that Merritt mentioned, and I don't like them because you have to get out and push the thing. I much prefer the scissor lift that you can drive, plus it is much more stable.

We just rent them and bill it to the customer, or have them rent one.

I just checked inventory. We are out of skyhooks but we have 4 gallons of checkered paint. We just got a shipment of rock bolts though. My boss said he is getting the glass nails next week. smile
I have used the SkyJack lifts and Genie Scissor lifts on the job I just did. The plumbers, electricians, HVAC, and alarm guys each had one on site. Not sure if they rented them, or the GC did, but they let everyone else (painters, drywall guys, me) use them when we needed to.

We have one exactly like the one Merritt mentioned. It is not the best for pulling cable. Larry is right, not only do you have to get out to push, you need to crank up all 4 of the standouts in order for it to lift.
We bought it because we have a customer that has 20ft ceilings in their office space. Driving a scissor lift through door ways would work, but it wouldn't do the carpet any good.

If anybody is looking at buying that style lift around Dayton, Ohio PM me.
