    Not a bad price, maybe I should run over there and get it. Estimated ceiling height is 10.5' or so. If I had it there the contractor can install it for me.

    However I am wanting to see about making one of those platform lifts.

    Not sure I like the 4 chains coming together but something along the lines of this. I don't like the idea of lugging totes and other heavy stuff up and down a ladder.

    Yeah that is more along the lines of what I am thinking. They want north of $2K for it though. I can do it for less.

    Have older model of that stairway in shop & shed; like them a lot. One of 2 units in the shed is usually left down as a main stairway even though it's rarely used.

    In my shed, we have an open area in the middle to the attic/loft. Above it is a HF hoist bolted to a barn door track attached to the ridge so that the lifted item can easily slide from the open middle to the floored side in the attic. Of course, we made sure the ridge was reinforced when we built the shed.

    That's kinda what I thought, but I like their idea. Good luck.

    I have one of these that I am not using.

    https://www.harborfreight.com/440-lb...rol-60346.html

    I was thinking of taking it apart and mounting a pipe to where the spindle mounts to the motor. Then have two spindles which is what I assume they are doing.

    It would be easy to add a micro switch to limit travel so it stops when at the top. I also like how they had an option for a switch in the garage and another in the attic. I would go with that option rather than drag around the corded remote and I am not going to mess with wireless.

    The problem with the one I originally linked to with the 4 chains coming together is it an spin around on you when it is going up. This design would be steady.

    Ours can spin, but rarely does more than a few inches at a very slow rate. Has not been problem for us.

    We just use the wired remote hanging from upstairs since one has to go up anyhow to load/unload. With solo operation, it's an extra trip on the stairs per load, but since it's not an everyday thing, not worthy of mods for me even with a bad back. YMMV

    I vowed that after we built the new house and moved in, that NOTHING would ever be stored in attics. If it didn't have a place in the living area or basement, then we didn't need it. 10 years later, nothing in attics. When we cleaned out the attic in the old house, 95% went straight to dump.

    That makes sense. For us we have decoration stuff that gets used on holidays that I can see going up there. Nothing really heavy but just a pain to store in other areas. Right now most of that stuff is in the attic above the small garage but that is getting gutted. That will be another project.

    I will openly admit though, that the new house has 2300 SF of unfinished basement that is full of junk. We happened to have the new house under lock and key when I had to clear out my dad's house.
