Those units weigh a great deal,and unless you own/rent a forklift,they are almost impossible to work with.
My cousin Troy has driven for several different equipment rental companies for over 25 years. I have access to those if I wanted to build a blind out of one.
The one's on my mind are lifted with either electronic actuators or pnuematic cylinders. I'm looking for used cylinders to rebuild since the new ones that I want cost over $1k each,and I need 2 or 4 of them depending on the design I plan on building.
I could go the simple route and just use an electric winch,but there's no challenge in doing that.
