    Looks like a pretty smart guy while on Dad duty.
    I used to roll down the windows in my bird and throw my boys inside as a secure playpen when I had work to do in the shop when momma was away. They still talk about how much fun they had in there to this day.

      I once used an engine hoist to lift an engine.

                I'll wager you could crack walnuts on that @ss, or possibly even flatten hardened steal.

                          Meh, I don't know what's so special about that Pops. Did the exact same thing just last week. When one uses the cherry picker every 2 or 3 years for its intended purpose, it has to be used for other things to justify its existence. I've even used mine to pull fence posts. Have even used my drywall lift to put the gas heaters in my shop into place.

                          Tools that "lift" are a wonderful thing.

                            I still may mentally justify buying one. Even though they are very inexpensive to rent.

                            Look for the $99 Horror Freight coupon and get their 1 ton unit. Great deal and very well made folding tool.

                              If you keep an eye on it and use the 20% off coupon you can get the 2 ton unit for around $120 as well.

                                    The older you get the more uses it has.
                                    Just used it this morning, put the 5th wheel hitch back in the truck.

                                    Probably saved another $2500:thumbsup:
                                    ER visit, meds, follow up Dr visits, missed work.....all for strained back.

                                    Oh to be young and foolish again:D
