Hand-Powered Fork Lift

D & R Manufacturing Ltd. at Fiske, Sask. designed this new winch-powered lift to help move aeration fans from bin to bin but it can be used to handle many types of cargo.
  The Aer Lift has a hand winch on it for moving the mast up and down, and a forklift between the front wheels. By placing a wood pallet on the fork, a stable platform is created. The unit also has a brake to hold it in place when needed. It lifts up to 500 lbs., to a height of up to 7 ft.
  "This makes it easy to use one fan on several bins," says inventor Richard Epp. "It uses a winch to position the fan in place for mounting on a flat or hopper bottom bin. The wheels are big enough to roll easily over rough ground."
  The Aer Lift sells for $650 (Can.) plus shipping and handling.
  Epp says available options include a 12-volt motor that drives the unit, and a swivel on the small back wheel for improved maneuverability.
