Topic tags/keywords: gantry sander heavy unloading

I got a new toy today. I won this disc sander on an Internet auction. When I picked it up they used a fork lift to load it…

Luckily I had built this gantry from pressure treated lumber. Watch this video of me unloading the disk sander.

When I got my JPM, TS and BS, I removed the gate from my truck , backed up to the bulkhead and used 2/16’ 2X12 planks from the bumper to the basement. I roped a small pulley to the front of the metal rack on the truck then ran the rope through it to the crate. I tied what’s known as a strawberry hitch around my parts, (eye in the line near the crate) ran the dumb end through the eye, gave the crate just enough slack to get it onto the planks then tied the dumb end off. Pushed the crate onto the planks, popped the knot then allowed gravity to pull the crate in a controlled manner into the basement.

-- I meant to do that!

I’m guessing you already had the lifting frame and hoist yeah, nice set up, kinda reminds me of the rigs my uncles used to have for lifting motors out of cars and trucks when they were young bucks.

I already had the planks, rope and pulley. The actual work from backing up to the bulkhead then pulling the truck away took 10 to 15 mins. The 16’ planks worked out well because they lay perfect against the steps and bumper when I backed up to them, no sag.
