If you find yourself hanging a lot of drywall, you might look into buying this cheap-ass drywall lift. It’ll hoist and position sheets of drywall precisely where you need them, so you can hang drywall by yourself. Even though you can rent lifts for $100 or less a day, for $160 you could own your very own.
This model can lift drywall to 11 feet horizontally for ceilings and 15 feet vertically for walls. It can handle a sheet of drywall up to 4 x 16 feet and 150lbs. The three large 5″ casters make it easy to roll the lift where you need to, even when fully loaded. You can assemble and disassemble it easily without tools.
This Platinum tool drywall lift seems to be the same one Harbor Freight sells, which leads us to believe it’s a re-branded import. The Amazon price says $60, but expect to pay $100 shipping and handling, because this heavy-duty, welded steel lift weighs a whole lot more than a cordless drill. The next lowest price was at Discount Tommy for $145 + $85 shipping, which still isn’t bad for a drywall lift.
