Project: Lifting gear

Lifting and moving stones

Many dry stone wall construction sites are not accessible for cranes or excavators. How can large blocks of stone be moved and relocated in such places? Here I show simple lifting equipment that can be carried by hand into the terrain. With this equipment loads up to one ton can be moved and relocated. Click on the pictures for more information and examples.

A load can be raised and lowered in place. A slight forward and backward movement is possible by tilting the shears more or less.
