    Are you getting the 600mm post extensions to allow for the height of a patrol with a roof rack etc. These allow the vehicle to be lifted high enough to walk under more easily. My son and I installed a 4 ton lift (not from Joel) with the extensions a couple of years ago at the back of our factory. Makes maintenance on the patrol so much easier


    Cheers

    No I am maxed out with this hoist and have built the shed around it. I have 100mm to play with. I went and saw the hoist today and Joel said at 5'10" I will stand up under the GQ no probs.

Just heard the shed is going up 'in the near future, but its a chinese jobbie and nothing like the original so the hoist is off the table for now unfortunately. They are a very nice bit of gear.
    Yeah these are bloody nice kit mate. Joel is moving 2 a day! He has about 30 in stock and has 5 going out on Monday. The 5T would be nice but the 4.5T is plenty for me. No hesitation to recommend his kit mate. I'm.impressed with how it looked. I will post some pics I took today.

    Yes I added 1m x 1m pad at 200mm thick for the base of each staunchon. Should be heaps.

    I went out to Joel's today and had a good look at these hoists. I have to say they are bloody good kit. It weighs 750kg and each staunchon is 300kgs. Good kit.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Can't wait.

    Been told today though I have to wait 4 weeks to bolt the hoist to new concrete so 2nd January is Bolt Down Day.

    "Been told today though I have to wait 4 weeks to bolt the hoist to new concrete so 2nd January is Bolt Down Day"

    Darren, not exactly true. What concrete strength has been specified by the engineer? For example, the concrete reaches around 70% strength in 7 days then 28 daysfor 100% to allow for the moisture to dissipate. If you are keen for a quicker stand up, simply increase the strength of the concrete and ask the engineer to validate the strength cure curve. What we typically do when up against a schedule, say we need 20mpa concrete we specify 32 or 40 and it reaches the 20mpa level in the first week, so good to go. I also would recommend you use a chemset anchor system as opposed to loxins/dyna bolt or other mechanical anchor, unless yo are precasting the anchor bolts into the slab - which isnt a big deal, just needs a tempate in advance to ensure the distances are correct. The chemset system is miles in front strength wise and will never come loose. Only thing to check with the chemset system is around any residual moisture still in the slab during the process of curing to the ultimate strength.

    Happy to have met a sound minded Bicyclist on our dirt road peddling solo on his way to the top!
    Burning legs uphill and actually had some off-road traction on his tyre/bike choice!
    100% convinced now there is a different pack breed that need to sniff lycra and follow their foolish logging truck dodging highway vegetable leaders :-)

    Thanks @Hodge @mudski and @jay see excellent to see you guys, and for the excellent company.
