Can I borrow that? What do you think it would cost to ship that thing back and forth?

Was this the one you got? I was thinking about it, looks like the price may have went up.

Huh - It looks a little different but I imagine it is the same one, just different colors.

You know I Just remembered the one I Bought was only about 7'10" wide - it fit my 8' beam because my Cafe tapers down a litlte in the back.

Between the Northern Tool and Harbor Freight it came down to price. With a promo code I found (20% off) I went with the Harbor freight one and I ended up getting it to my house for less then the list price.
Should be Monday.

Harbor Freight puts them on sale alot. They are a little cheezy. I found a 2 ton gantry on craigs list for 250.00. It was 6 years old but only used one time and kept in a warehouse. He threw in 3 trolleys also. I have a forklift also and sometimes that, works better because it has more height but I always feel safer using the gantry.
