We actually have one, a guy down the street from our shop father patented and designed them.
Very useful but also very dangerous at the same time.Dad's Hideout The online mancave for dads

The contraption would be a lot more safe if it had an attachment for a counter weight. As is, the heaviest man on the job is the counter weight. Not a fun position to be in when you have to lift a 5 ton condensing unit. Some guys refuse to use it. I really can't blame them. Ive been in the death chair a few times myself, it aint fun, but "whatever it takes" is usually my motto.
big slim, I can fax you a terrible drawing of one if you want. You can email your fax number to firstname.lastname@example.org
Otherwise maybe joey can put you in contact with the guy that actually designed it. Joey?
