Hello members ,
I decided it’s better to buy a wheelchair lift than end up in a wheelchair!!!! This idea came to me a year ago when a good friend who is handicapped visited me and showed me his new used van with a wheelchair lift. He let me play around with it and I told him I wanted a lift like it. He look puzzled until I told him what my intentions were. He loved my idea and he started sending me Craig’s list links in his spare time until we found the right one for my project at the right price. I am not finished with this project yet but I am heading back up north to pick up the second half of my 25 pumps with guts and also mega parts so I decided to move this project forward. I still need to build a batter tray, and a housing to protect the motor/pump assembly from the elements. Please feel free to post comments on my idea. Yes I could have spent the big bucks on an electric hand truck but this entire project so far has cost me under $400.00 !!!!

Like the thinking on that, great idea! Installation looked rather easy, was the wiring complicated?

The handheld controller was missing and I had to adapt a different controller. Also for van installations they have safety switches like door and park interlocks that I did not need and had to bypass. All in all nothing terribly difficult. With the free PDF manual with schematics pretty straight forward.

That is awesome, Rob. That has to be safer, especially if you are by yourself. Did you find a weight rating on the unit?

Hi Jim,
Thanks, The weight limit on this unit is 800 LBS this should be plenty sufficient for the pumps I collect . Thanks for embedding my videos!

Great idea, will prevent bilateral clavicle fractures! Nice hack Rob.
My senior dogs would love the lift up into the back of the ride but they would likely find it a tad too slow.😜

Thanks guys!

Fred,
I still remember the pain from that gas pump accident!!! Whenever I lift and move a heavy pump that accident comes to mind !

Great idea Rob! I already found 2 of these lifts here locally. Both were removed from old buses for just a little over $200.

Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
