Default Carboy Lifter

Got tired of throwing out my back so I had a welder make this. He is out of King N.C. and said depending on spec. he could make them for around 300.00.

His name is David Mabe and his number is 336 983 9890.

Very cool....I am also impressed with the fact your wine doesnt roll around on that shelf!

I was thinking about putting all of the carboys in milk crates and putting a ceiling winch on rollers.

Has anyone placed an order for a lifter? When he made mine he said the next one would be different as I bought the wrong steel tracking. It would look like the one Northern Equipment has on sale for 500.00, but he can make it for around 300.00

Yea looked at that before built the one in the pic. Problem is in my cellar need at least 50 inches of lift. Plus to get lifter to other side of my cellar it is only 22 inches wide...so that one would not have worked..
