    get 2 https://www.harborfreight.com/1-4-qu...ist-67144.html use one on each side from double center rafter down to the fan housing
    pick it slow and easy. one side at a time about 3-5" then the other side until high enough.
    keep the hoists around they take up little space and are very handy
    good luck

    Thanks Mike. I scored a go ahead from IT to borrow the lift and am headed out to go pick it up shortly and then swing by Lowes to pick up a couple of 2x6s for a custom pallet since the forks are not quite long enough. There isn't a supplier for spiral pipe close by so I plan to purchase from blastgateco.com. I'd be interested to know how their prices compare to what you paid locally. Below is my shopping list.

    Thanks for this tip. I originally bought the 1 ton one, https://www.harborfreight.com/1-ton-...hoist-996.html, which worked well to get the Impeller housing lifted using a couple of HF straps. Now that I scored an OK to borrow the IT Dept. Global Industrial lift I'll keep your advice in mind for future reference.

    Update: I picked up the lift from the IT dept at work late yesterday and went by Lowes for two 8' 2x6s. This morning I built a custom pallet which you can see below. This afternoon I had a friend come over to help move the lift in place up the steps and to make sure the cyclone stayed stable while I attached the legs. It couldn't have been easier. The lift worked perfectly! Now I can move on to the filter assembly and the spiral pipe ordering and installation. Thanks for all the suggestions. I got really lucky in being able to borrow this lift. Otherwise I would have had to try one of the alternates discussed here.

    I could have used that when I put my cyclone together. You did a great job.
