Pics now with commentary


Rob: Now i know what it feels like to be up a ladder with others peeking up my skirt
Gav: Oh, I really don't feel well now seeing what I just saw. Rob really shouldn't dress 'commando'
Mike: Hey Rob, see my boxers? You really should try them out...



571CKY: OK, now Rob's up the ladder on this side, lets see what all this fuss is about ... oohh, err...


Caption would be infractioned I'm sure...

It was not too hard to install once we got the team going...
I imported this one directly as part of a larger plan to do a group buy now that I have now worked through all of the issues and verified the quality... If you are interested in a hoist watch this space as I will be posting a link to a web site with all of the versions on it. I would say these will be the best value for money hoists with good quality you will see anywhere. I guess thats why it took me literally two years to get to this stage.

I have not done all the figures yet but indicative prices for lifts are around 2,700 AUD, prices are likely to vary from 2000-3400 as there are about 12 different types of lift to choose from.
Once I have the prices list updated I will publish a link to the site and discount for Zers so we can get a group buy together.
I am confident these will be the best value lifts you find especially in the group buy mode.
If you want to inspect it let me know, we will be giving it a work out at LadyZ's tech day :-)

Thats great Yellow,

I will let you guys know when the site is ready (Its always very close, but it keeps getting extra bits done), as I said I will be driving the costs right down so that Zers get the best deal possible. It helps me as I can bring in a larger shipment to reduce shipping costs. Its the old volume / cost relationship :-)

I found that I might make some special LadyZ arms as she has one of the lowest Z's around... and given I have to inspect and do regular maintenance on the car it is well worth working that out. The arms almost fit I just need to make some minor mods. will take a pic to show you guys what I mean.

Great stuff

Did you ever get to the point of a group buy pricing etc for the hoists? I just realised I commented on that thread back in 2010 but haven't heard anything since (although I may have missed it as I took a break for a bit whilst overseas)
