Mobile Column Lifts
 
This was on Jay Leno's Garage back in 2013, but figured some of you guys with top end garages for your rigs might like. Good video on them too.

Mobile Column Lifts. Made in America! Carl Boyer demos Stertil-Koni's amazing heavy duty hydraulic lift system on Jay's fire truck. Four wirelessly connected columns move anywhere to lift up to 72,000 pounds to full lifting height.

They have these in the shop where my friend works. Picked my FC up no problem at all to change the height control and dump valves. They have had them for a number of years and I was told they were about $65 K at that time.

I got a great deal on a pair of these lifts from ebay a few years ago.

NOS for around $6K
They'll only lift to 2', but it puts the chassis up to nearly 3' off the floor. I love them.
While a set of 4 full height column lifts would be sweet, I don't have the floor space, ceiling height, nor budget to have a set.

$6k to lift 2' ??


I can figure out something besides that...

They used 4 of these to lift the back of the coach to do the compressor hoses at the Loves in Ozark, AL. Wish I had gotten a better pic. All 4 WiFi linked to operate together from one unit. They seemed to lift the back end pretty easily!

Ahh, the old Spartan bus that Kirk Grimshaw had for many years. Glad to see it being put to good use.

(Not to hijack this thread, but...) Yes, we did purchase it from Kirk. But it is no longer the Spartan bus:D

Kirk took pretty good care of her. I'm starting with fresh PM across the board, need to see if I can fix the leveling issue Kirk discovered, and replace the old and inoperable inverter. Just wish I had someplace here in Dothan to wash her. The apartment complex would have an aneurism if I pulled up to the wash bay with the bus!:p

Fill your water tank and go find a parking lot somewhere and wash the bus.
a closed down mall or the back of a truck stop,a rest area on the interstate,anywhere.
I have a small ryobi pressure washer ($100) that i connect to my coach and it works just fine to wash the bus and car.

Randy, I had thought about that briefly, but wasn't sure the coach water system would have enough pressure/flow to be effective. I guess with a small pressure washer like you mention it would work well. I like the idea!
