    A plate 600mm squ should allow enough to lift what a 35kg winch
    take off the weight of the SWR So you only need support what 28kg tops

    So this winch has to come out from underneath,
    then frabricate a frame to fit onto the bullbar
    easy enough to do, just saying lol

    is the winch lifting up or down to remove.
    with the plasma on it it would be lucky to be 28kg
    My sheds a Stratco and Ive no doubt the c section span
    would hold a winch ,
    I used it to lift a 285 mud and steel rim when testing that
    wheel lifter I designed did it easy thats closer to 50kg

    LAST EDIT ::I used 6mm plasma to lift it

    The issue is going to be getting up to the roof beam Would need to hire a scissor lift - twice. Once to get the pattern for a plate & again to put it up there. Weight lifted would also need to include bullbar btw. Then purchase a sling or some plasma rope, plus a block & tackle. All starts to make a for a minor job which might be cheaper to give to a local 4wd shop? Sigh. Im thinking the A frame idea may be the go.

    I've been in Cuppas shed and a scissor lift is the only way to reach the roof beams. I wouldn't feel safe on one at that height, have enough trouble climbing scaffolding.
    Cheers

    Nah no way guys. Seriously you are over thinking this cuppa.

    So when they built the shed someone stood on the roof and screwed the sheets down. A couple of blokes probably. 6 blokes could run laps on your roof and probably not even get a vibration!! That's 500kgs to 600kgs easy! Anywhere on the roof! Seriously. Go and hire an extension ladder. Or buy one. Install the sling and leave it there. Make sure it's long enough you can reach it from a step ladder for future use. Get on with the job. This is a NO BRAINER!

    What are you going to do when you need to change a light globe or clean your gutters mate? Hire a scissor lift? Really!

    This is not a House of Cards. It's an Engineered Clear Span Steel Portal Frame Shed that meets the current Australian Building Code. Collapse is not Immanent! It really will support your weight and mine standing together with a few mates.

    Darren, I accept the roof is strong as you suggest & the beams will take the weight of a winch & bullbar ok, but Im not getting up on the roof or working at 5.5m on a ladder. I have a shorter ladder which just gets me to the gutters to clean them. We used a scissor lift to put up the lights, hung to a level where my stepladder can reach This is way below where a sling would need to be attached.

    You know, heights never used to bother me at all, but as I get older they & I are less compatible. Its a common phenomena apparently. At one time I would have run around on that roof without a care. Im rather more cautious now Im closing in on 60. You might consider this a bit wimpy, if so, so be it........ but one thing is for sure, if I were going to do anything at 5.5 metres up it would be on a scissor lift with safety rails around me. Ive had a fall off a ladder from only about 3 metres up & thought Id broken my back. I was lucky. What is a couple of knocks easily ignored at 40 or younger is a whole different ball game 20 years later. Of course if youve worked at heights all your life the view might be a little different.

    Make two "A" frames with a solid weight bearing beam to slide between them.
    They would store flat against the wall , total weight you'll need to lift is about 65kg
    for the bullbar and 28kg for the winch complete. Total 93kg
    I hear you about heights . Im not afraid of them myself but a few mates are
    Make from RHS of your choice min 40x40x3mm

    Surely it would just be a lot easier with 2 people to lift?
    Once your back is better Cuppa it's an easy 2 person lift.
