  • Kegel lane machine lowering

    Is there a video somewhere or could someone post one, of the Kegel lane machine lower bracket, kit, etc??? Or has anyone built there own?? Just got a new flex on 8/18 and it is heavy as sin, not very practical and my opinion, but I'm stuck with it.

      I have a Flex also and I have to agree with you. One of the problems is the position of the lift handles. It's hard to lift with your knees and must rely on lifting with your back . I rigged my own winch mounted above the dropped ceiling onto metal beam, Would gladly send you pictures if you are interested.

                  Thanks, my boss is good friends with a guy that owns a fab shop. He made a nice enclosure for it. My back gets mad at me when i bend and lift so it's a big help.

                    This.

                    Phoenix-S? No problem. Flip the handles out, get your feet underneath, lift with your legs. Walker, not so much.
