Bluebird engine hoists are used primarily by rental facilities. They are very solidly constructed and assemble/dis-assemble quickly without tools. The problem is that if you don't have a Bluebird storage cart, you have to lean the parts up in a corner or stack them in a pile somewhere. The Bluebird carts are all but unavailable used, and while they are still being made, they cost over $1,400.
The solution I am working on permits the hoists to remain largely assembled, but reduced in size to a 24" x 41" footprint for storage. I didn't want to reduce the 24" dimension further for stability sake. Short 24" long 2" x 3" fabricated tubes have casters on one end, and slide into the Bluebird base in place of the regular legs. The legs and boom are then placed vertically in short rectangular tubing recepticals. The whole works can then be rolled against a wall or other convenient out of the way location. Re-assembly is just as easy.
I'm waiting on one more short length of rectangular tubing to accommodate the boom to finish up the project.
