I'm also looking at a Bannon, Eastwood and Pittsburgh.

Who's do you like / own?

I kinda like the Eastwood one ton gantry crane, but they don't do PayPal internet transactions.

I bought a four ton gantry crane from northern tool. I use it to lift the big blocks in & out of my boat. Never a complaint. Could of gone with a two ton, rather have over kill than to worry.

True, we think alike.

Did you buy a Bannon brand gantry crane?

Looks like the Bannon, Eastwood and Pittsburg are the same design.

Looks like the SUMMIT requires a ladder to raise and lower the gantry height.

I've got a couple 10ft high garage doors to roll it in and out of, so I don't really see that as a negative, once set to workable height originally.

SUMMIT is easy to do internet business with, they do PayPal transactions.

Pittsburgh it is. It weighs over 700 lbs.

"Working" load 2000 lbs. That means you can move the crane loaded with a load under 2000 lbs.

I can pick one up local. Kenneth City Harbor Freight has one in stock.

Ended up with a 1 ton Eastwood weighs 600 lbs, with a 240V 2T chain winch, and a china beam trolley.

Eastwood is your best deal pound for pound, if you're looking. Eastwood, Bannon or Pittsburgh. All the same design / higher working weight loaded.

Eastwood, good company to do business with.

No tricks, no gimmicks, no fine print.

Straight up good service, on time.

They earned a repeat customer.

American crackers cracking the whip on china slave labor, doing quality control.

It's nice chit. Real nice.

The USA ship has sailed to China, welcome to the New World Order.

china will be the next Super power,as planned by the tri-lateral commission in the early 1970's.

Everyone is already hearing the Giant sucking sound.

Truth

His families lives were threatened too. So he dropped out.

That's when you know you're over the target.

Got a guy begging to give $90k for this car with a BBC in it.

Crane works killer!

We're looking at a 69 396 BBC Chevelle encore when this one goes. The Dart block 496 BBC for it is in the works.
