I'm looking to make a cradle and pulley system to hang my sled to make some room in the garage. I'm looking for some ideas I'm sure it's been done with and without fail. Any cool ideas or build pics would be great.
If you have the room, build a pallet and stack it on racking. That is what I am going to do this spring. Actually contemplating putting one on the top and another on the bottom. But then again, guess I am assuming you have a forklift or tractor?
Sounds like a lot of work. Why not just get a covered trailer and park it in the shade. Plus with a covered trailer you don't have to worry about all that salt getting on your machines when you trailer them.
Don't hang it unless you can figure out the extra stresses the framing will have to handle. Had a buddy do it and it stayed up for two days. He thought he had it licked, he did do some "beefing up" as he put it. We told him we didn't think it would hold--sight unseen. One afternoon it fell and trashed his sled. The worst part was the kids were in the garage playing when it fell. Thank God they weren't hurt.
Just be careful and if your not sure find somebody who knows. My .02
