    Storage Help

    Like most of us the garage is getting smaller all the time. Iím looking for some kind of storage for the 4 wheeler and zero turn mower. I thought this would be a cheap reliable system till my buddies pointed out there is no way to get a 900lb zero turn mower up there due to the lack of ground clearance of the mower it could never make the sharp angle. The 2 post lifts on the market donít have a platform and canít find any options for one. Has anybody here came up with a answer that theyíd be willing to share with a picture if possibleClick image for larger version.†

    Why do you want to elevate the heavy stuff? I have heavy duty shelving that I put all my boxes of stuff on and then leave the floor for my mower and implements. I try and put my implements on dollies since they are not self powered. Anything that is self powered I make accessible to drive out of the shop with minimum hassle. That way I have floor space quickly if I need it. Not ideal but it's what I do to account for shrinking space. Lately though I have just been selling off some of my crap to create more space!

    You are correct, you will be hard pressed to see a 2 post lift that is used for storage. Typically that's what 4 post lifts are used for.

    Because I get tired of tripping over them. I donít need mower between November and end of April. 4 wheeler is for plowing which is December into April maybe. So why not move it out of the way.

    There are limited options.

    I know some people with a bobcat or something with a substantial lifting capability that put stuff like that on pallets and then put the entire pallet up on the pallet rack. You would have to get at least into a 3R range to begin to think about lifting something that heavy and that might not be able to. What about a 4 post hoist? That might work. Run the zero turn on the lift and raise it up. Most 4 posts don't need to be bolted down and can be put on wheels to move it around. A motorcycle lift that is converted to ATV lift might work but won't go very high. Not nearly that high but you could get it up about 3' or so.

    Living in rural Minnesota comes with the acquisition of LOT of rolling stock and associated attachments. I have always been (had to be) creative when it comes to storage. I can't thing of ANY sane way to store a 900 lb Zero-turn on a rack with the possible exception of a vehicle rack. Example...

    Looked at Pallet Stacker Myself But for My Needs I found I need to get One of these a Crown ST series so I Can Put stuff in the second Floor of the Barn. There rather Inexpensive used. New they cost as Much as a 1series TLB. What I have found with some of the More inexpensive ones is there To Tall for Barn door Openings (I can fit a 3R series with a Cab through) and really don't have the Lift Height. For one that will fit through My opening. Was all set to Buy a ULINE Pallet stacker $3,470 and it lifts 137 inches 11.5 FT But when Lowered it's over 9ft Tall and the Crown ST series when Lowered is 6ft 1inch Tall. Not that I need a self propelled one. But it Lifts 14 Feet & has a lift capacity of 1980lbs to 2500lbs depending On fork Length

    Bigger shed is the best option.
    Short of a real lift, Double deck storage for things with tires ainít nuttin but a pain in the butt.
    Iíd use chain hoists and jerk that stuff up to the rafters before Iíd be riding up ramps to a wonky ass shelf.
    Bigger shed, thin the herd, or keep on trippin.

    So spend a bunch of money on that thing to lift toys onto pallet. So what do I buy to lift that out of the way?
