Like this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYaxQGU9ZsY (Video is wfs. I don't know about audio - I don't have speakers on my computer at work.)

It looks like they have a sturdy platform built into their pull-up rig.

Re: Stone Loading Platform

Here are some other ideas brought to you by Google:

Wood rack with adjustable platform heights:

Reinforced wood platform on a rig:

Google and YouTube search are still working. Glad to see that.

Re: Stone Loading Platform

Thanks Chris...

The Rogue one was the one I saw a few days ago. Was hoping to find a schem on it. Pretty cool setup.

Very hurtful Mark

Well, two things, I guess.

1) I admit, it's a pet peeve of mine when people post questions on things that they easily could have looked up on their own -- and most likely gotten the information that they were looking for faster. I doubt that this is what most people are thinking when they do that, but to me it just says "I would rather that you take your time and energy to answer my question instead of me going and finding the answer myself." We have even had people on this forum get upset and indignant about not getting a response from the forum members when their answer was readily available through a quick search.

2) Snarky answers are what I do. You'll get used to it.

I guess to try to actually contribute....

I have thought about trying to build a platform using car tires to build up the elevation and then bolting a wood landing area to the upper-most tire. I'm not sure if this would work (might not be stable enough), but I have the tires for it, and the upper landing area would be very easy to construct.

Mark thanks.. I was just messing with ya back but its tough online to sometimes get that across.

I guess I was just looking to see what others had done if any. I use a 50 gallon barrel right now but the one at Rogue HQ looks much nicer.

Re: Stone Loading Platform

I haven't built my own atlas stone platform... I don't even have an atlas stone. But I do geek out about DIY gym equipment, so I enjoy looking for ideas online. I wouldn't have jumped in otherwise.

Mark - never, ever change your avatar pic. It goes perfectly with the snarky remarks.
