Getting It Up....... oo-er!!

This is a saga!!!…….. my friend purchased for himself a bargain!!….. a 2nd hand car lift!!!
Great I said…. but does it work???
Well he said me and YOU are going to find out….
Oh right………. well…….. after some 3 months since first placing it into his workshop, purchasing a new motor, then a new drive pulley, then new control gear, then installing a bigger supply to the workshop, then welding repairs to the worm drive, then blowing up a motor capacitor, then replacing said capacitor, then nearly breaking a drive chain, then realising we needed to load the lift more carefully…………….. it worked!!!!
One 2.3 tonne landrover up in the air of which I can easily walk under (and did…. confidence in our work ????)
Goes without saying we were quite chuffed….. and to be frank… it is still a bargain!!!…………. just..LOL
