              Comments about Double 8 Elevators, 4-Pack:

              Mine is a 6.5 X 6.5 at 16' high. 4 X 4 posts were bolted to a treated base made out of 4 X 6 posts. I used circular saw to cut "sled like" angled ends on both ends. It also has a safety deck rail at shooting height, and an extension ladder deck built onto one side for easy access to my "pop up" blind. 1 X 6 deck boards extend out to complete this ladder deck. Ladder is bolted to base frame, and ladder deck. All can easily be moved in and out of a clearing with a 400cc & up weighed down Quad, tractor, or UTV.

                  Used them to elevated an enclosed 4'by 5' tree stand and they worked perfectly. Made a much safer and warmer stand then my old exposed stand nailed to a couple of trees. Would recommend these devices to anyone.

                  • Q:

                    Has anyone made a 6' square platform with roof and handrail on 16' long legs using the elevators?
                    Asked on 2/3/2010 by Buck from Midwest

                    1 answer

                    • A:

                      Just built one with a 5 1/2' square platform on 16' 4" x 4" poles. Framed the platform with treated 2" x 6" boards, including 2 (2" x 6") support braces under the floor. Floor made of 2" x6" boards 5 1/2 feet long. Box on top has 3 1/2' walls and roof. You will need 8 ea 16' (5/4' x 6") for "X" braces on each side. I also put 4 ea 10' (5/4" x 6") around the bottom of the poles.

                      I make them strong to be safe and last long. The last one I built is 25 years old and solid as the day I put it up. Vandals have knocked it over at least 3 times since I put it up but all I had to do was stand it back up and drive in a couple more nails.

                      I invested around $350 in this stand and it is heavy. I don't plan to ever move it. Gator

                      any size you want,however you might want to make your platform out of 2x6 or 2x8 if your going huge.

                      I used them to build a 4' X 8' tree house for my nephew and used all pressure treated material.....
                      it has held up quite well even over the winter here in New York. We have also used them to build a 4' x 4' hunting blinds . They seem to be well made and we have had as many as 3 adults in the large tree house at one time , so I know you can go at least that size .
                      I hope that this has helped.

                      I tried to send a picture along with this email but it wouldn't let me send it.....sorry :{

                      I do not know the "structural design maximum", but I would not be daunted by a 10 X 10 well constructed BUT LIGHTWEIGHT platform. If one wants walls, still in light weight form, I would stay within 8 X 8. The secret to keeping it raised in weather is the anchoring used. I guess 100 square feet is a good baseline maximum.
