Im looking to fit the space with PVC air, motorcycle lift (not sure where to buy one) and Im doubling up on all my tools so I don't have to take the toolbox out of the trailer.

I was looking at a motorcycle lift online yesterday. Any suggestions on buying a used pneumatic or hydraulic lift?

Ill fit out the space with PVC air hooked up to an air compressor.

Ill buy pneumatic tools.

I purchased already a huge snapon toolbox.

Ill pick up a used TIG welder next month.... gota learn how to TIG the month after

Mine is pedal operated. It has a large pedal to raise it and a small pedal to lower.
