    Used my ladder hoist today.. hell yeah...

    I got this nifty ladder winch thingy last summer and just used it today on a Trane 5 ton heat pump warranty compressor replacement..

    This thing made the hardest part the job very easy really and moved the pace up some..

    I love it...



    here is the compressor brung down nice and smooth.. is not really slow as some winches i used tend to be..



    I got this item at

    http://www.legrandeenterprises.com/Pages/default.aspx

    shipping was fast and packaged good..

    I am pleased and will use this beast alot i think..

    yes it can and you can tilt it in and out is really designed for the extension ladder I think but i just adapted to use it here like this...

    they work great but like anything like this you have to use caution and work safe..

    I'm guessing that cable goes over the outside yoke extended away a foot or so? The way it looks from the pic the compressor would keep hanging up on the ladder.

    I carry one of those ladder cranes in my truck. Flat roofs are the easiest, parapets make it more of a reach up to crank; but still easy and fast for one man to get something heavy up on the roof. When I was younger I thought they were rather awkward and clumsy. Then I got older.

    I have used them before, in high winds makes you a little nervous on the edge of the roof.
