Does anyone know where I can purchase a jack that will lift 4 feet off the ground?? It only has to lift approx 100 lbs. It would help if it came with a platform approx 2ft x 2 ft (plywood, etc) If it doesn't come with a platform, I can build one. Any sites I should be looking at?

Sounds like you need a 4 foot acme screw and some guide rods for stability. Probably need a 90 degree gearbox to drive it.

What are you trying lift?

I was wondering if anyone would bring up the HILIFT jack, they make it in 4/5&6 foot tall styles. Very handy especially if you off road/4 wheeling at all.

What are you trying to lift?? Those Hi-lift jacks are called Widow-Makers here.If your hand slips off the handle will hit you in the head. Kill or make bloodclots in your brain. My neighbor had that happen.
Yes good for offroading but little else.

I need to lift my artificial Christmas tree from the ground to a 4 ft platform. I build a platform over the stairwell for the tree. Unfortunately, I don't have alot of room to manuever....a short 4 ft wide space. I'll try to get a picture posted later in the day. Thanks for all the suggestions!

HaHa .. This one weighs a ton! I'm decorating it in 3 sections and hauling it to the platform..Takes 2 people for each section to go up. Then my ornaments get all messed up and some fall off the tree. Then you have to get each section perfectly aligned so it looks right. All the while standing on the platform that is over a stair well with 11 stairs....LONG way down ~~~ Every year I say "Im getting too old for this"!!

I got a wreath that I plug in and an artificial tree that stays decorated that gets put up ... Thats enough Christmas Spirit around here ... I did buy two more wreaths with lights from a lady at the bowling alley so this year I will have gone the extra mile so to speak ... "Merry Christmas" ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

Sounds like you have a tree like my wife's, I dread when she wants to put it up and take it down. I use my front end loader to put it on the patio, and to take it off, and she takes it in and assembles it in pieces.

I'd offer to help, but my front end loader probably won't fit in your house

Yvonne, it's 9 ft tall 8feet wide, but the down side is it weighs about 14,000 lbs. Might have to shore up the floor

Could you rig a come along to an overhead beam and pull sections up that way? I probably don't have a very good idea of what you need to do.
