Re: Cheap Drywall Lifts


I use a lift called the Hercule 42-60. Ive been using it for 5 years. It retails for about $175 and is designed for the top sheets against the ceiling and is sold steel. There is a video on youtube and i got it through the website hercule42-60.com

Dido but I got 300 for mine on CL .
I bought it from an importer/flea bayer of chinese crap from their warehouse in northern Michigan [while up there skiing] Open boxes they sell for half price for cash out the back door, super hot lady runs the front desk and friendly.
I put OSB on the ceiling and walls of my pole barn with it. I actually liked using it, made a difficult job for one guy a beer drinking my time.
POS maybe but it got the job done.

It's rare that I buy a cheap (inexpensive) tool and not wind up annoyed that I just didn't pony up the rest of the cash and buy a good one.
I have a telpro and before buying it, thought for a moment about getting the cheaper ones as I too, wouldn't use it much. I'm so glad I didn't and got the good one as payback may not come from one job, but I get it every time I use it in no aggravation, cobbling or replacing things to make it work.
