"My specific challenge involves moving, lifting and positioning 1000-3000 LBS logs onto a stationary Sawmill. To add to the challenge, some work areas have power and others do not. Ideally my attempt was to create a system that required only a single operator. Very expensive specialized log handling equipment is available for the task, but was far outside of my budget. So with the Gantry crane outfitted with both and electric winch and a chain operated (no power) winch I am able to move and position 3000 LBS logs with precision and ease and increased my throughput of lumber by 3X. Outside of the primary purpose I have also used the crane and its portability to gather timber by lifting the logs onto log trolleys for extraction from the woods, again a multi-man operation that now requires a single operator. The ease of assembly, ruggedness, and portability of this tool has exceeded my expectations for its primary purpose, and I can see that it will be useful for any heavy lifting purposes I have in the future."
