    What are you all using ? I need something that is around 10ft tall and 8 ft wide. It needs to handle 1000-1200 lbs. I've looked all over the internet with no luck. I'm about ready to build my own.

    Thanks Jody!! I've looked at those they are too big and bulky for our program. I was hoping someone like a chassis shop was building some light weight ones for lifting engines. Our rig is a boat on a dolly trailer so it's tall to begin with. I figured I would have to build one. I was just hoping the masters would know where to buy one. Thanks again !!

    If it is a one shot deal, you can build a temporary tripod style A frame from three 12' 4X4's & a length of 1" black pipe. Drill 1-1-2 holes through the 4X4's at the top, slip the black pipe through, then trap them together with a hang chain for the chainfall. Quick & nasty but it works.

    I formerly worked on our Family PE, TAF 535, and TFH 420. easiest way if you have a enclosed trailer is a 3 point gantry, aluminum I beam with a bracket on top of trailer and aluminum A frame other end.
