How Many Lifters Would it Take? Motorpool Crank

Motorpool Crank

For this iteration of How Many Lifters, we’re doing things a little differently. Today, instead of estimating how many it would take to pick something up, we are figuring out how many lifters this pulley system replaces. This crank lifts a maximum weight of 7.5 tons, or 15000 pounds. If you figure the strongest amateur deadlifter (since we’re basing this on a pulling movement) to pull 800, that’s 18-19 of the strongest men. One crank… or 19 really strong men.
