Moving/lifting full fermenters?

Post by ciderhead » Mon Apr 29, 2019 10:25 pm

Thanks again to the folks on Jims for a rec.

Full extension 80l thermopot just fits although I bought it for my 60l HLT

Solid build
Not cheap but neither is back surgery.
Not vendors primary business either

Solid capable of 135kgs, I sat on it!
Nice big wheels to move around and good powder coat paint finish for knocks.
I guess the only Achilles heel i can see is the pump for table height but won’t know whether it’s up to the job for years and unlikely that I will be doing any more pumping than a motorbike enthusiast?
Any maintenance tips from pros appreciated.
Overall happy with purchase!
Locking mechanism with bar in event of piston failure.

If somebody into bikes could show me what these do I’d be thrilledImage

Very happy with this and bought a second! Still no clue what to do with those clamp things though

It's the 50 litre model. I also have a 20 litre for when I get even older and unable to drink as much as I do now =D>
