Re: Almost free !!!

There is always a catch.

Still a nice score.

The older I get the more I want a lift. Two of them actually. I want both a 2 post and a 4 post. Figure I might as well aim high.

Same here.
I always toy with the idea.
It would have to be outside.
Always wondered what it would cost for a patch of concrete to set it up on.
Now I have an idea.

Re: Almost free !!!

I finished getting all the rebar drilled and set in the footing yesterday. The pad will be 13' x 25' with most of it 4" thick and 10" where the cage goes. It will be poured with #4000 concrete with fiber and wire re-mesh.

Re: Almost free !!!

Lucky bastard(s). I'm jealous. $2,000 for concrete work is still a sore-d*** deal for a lift, and for a 2-post, 4-pointer at that. Was helping pops with a brake job yesterday and man, a lift would've been nice! How thick are you gonna pour the concrete?

Not really, 4 yrs ago when I built that garage that slab was $5000 with a total cost of $40K.

My son hanging trusses!

Re: Almost free !!!

Well I got some temp power to it to do some testing and the cylinders are leaking pretty bad and going to have to be rebuilt. First one is on it's way to work to find a kit of that size.

Re: Almost free !!!

Somehow I don't think my HOA would go for that.

Re: Almost free !!!

Back in 2000 when I started looking for a new home I only had 3 requirements.
1- Block construction including any fencing
2- A large lot with rear access
3-No HOA's

I found all of that and more in a 60yr old custom home community in a "non-conforming" (zoning) area on a corner lot in a culdesac!

Re: Almost free !!!

Good news, bad news...... I was able to find seal kits. But upon dis-assembling the cylinders, the chrome on the rams looks good but there's no way to salvage the cylinders. Taking them down in the morning to be re-tubed $$$(but still cheaper than full replacement units).

Re: Almost free !!!

2000 is a sweet price.

I crunched numbers and I'd come in about 2600 I'd have to think hard on charging more for rebar and mesh.

Re: Almost free !!!

My latest pour( in March) was for my "trailerport" which was about 8' x10'. Today went good, I was at the hydraulic shop at 8am right when they open. I forgot to ask if they were closed Monday but I should get them back by at least Wednesday!
