    Cantilever Jib Crane mounted to Stud Wall

    I want to mount a Vestil Manufacturing JIB-LC-10 wall mounted jib crane to a wood stud wall covered with 5/8" type X gyp board at the back of my garage. Will the wall support the thrust and pull values of a jib 8'-0" long with a maximum 1000 lbs load and the thrust and pull values listed as 3459 lbs each way? The wall mounted crane will be used to raise a 486 pound lawn tractor up onto a 5'-0 high wood storage platform.

    Hi
    It depends of how far do you lift the load from the wall. It's so important. and let me know if you can use a steel bar or wire cable for support behind the wall.
