Mounting a winch to pull cars up on carport

Post by econo racer » Fri Jun 08, 2018 5:11 am

How would I do this so I could winch disabled vehicles up by myself? I used to winch them on a trailer then unload but there has to be a way of winching them to the shop. has concrete floor.

a plate with an arm sticking up to bolt the winch on, securely bolted to the floor should do.

You could also cut a hole into the floor and "underpin" the concrete [at least as thick as the floor] with a vertical receiver sleeve with some rebar through the sleeve [and into the slab, low leave lots of concrete over it] then fill with "unshrinkable concrete". You may also need to create some sort of drainage as you are still outside, and only partially protected from the rain/snow. This with a flush cover [magnetic?] and no trip [or hose, creeper etc.] hazard. This is my plan for my garage floor as I am just not as strong as I once was :( this and a machining intensive lock system that I just haven't figured out how to do with out all the work! Harry
