Bed crane anyone?


Recommended Posts

Am now welding up the frame for the bed, and sure would like to have a small, couple ton hand crane.  

Ideally, i would like to be able to remove and install the bed with it, because I don’t have a hoist, but that would be more complex, so shelving idea that for now.

hydraulic jack, some tubing, and a base swivel- i have a couple wheel bearing assemblies, complete with flanges from a sorento. 

Anyone done something like this?  Didn’t see any projects for this in the resource forum.  

Best case would be movable to various locations on the bed.

I have the Harbor Fright hydraulic 1/2 ton crane that I can install for hoisting stuff on the bed and remove for loading the Smart. I need to add a small winch or a block and tackle to increase the lift range, though.   Charlie
