I believe that Crepensik (sp) makes a mono attachment with a jack on it for adjustments for around $2000

You might also get in touch with Brent Mikesell over at Irongladiators.com. He had one on sale a while back but not sure the price. A pretty good deal though. Another idea might be to get in touch with Ernie Frantz or one of the other guys that have designed monolifts. Maybe for a small fee they'd sell you the plans and you could find a local welder to fab one up for the cost of the steel.

Good luck,

There is a guy on utahpowerlifting.com that calls himself westsidesizzler who is currently selling one if you are interested. I am not sure about shipping etc. depending on where you live though. From his post:

"the monolift is still for sale. If you go over to ksl.com you can see pics of the monolift.
asking price is $1750/obo. New monolifts go from $2700-$3200. NOT including shipping.
When you come and pick up this monolift you are saving almost $300 in shipping charges.
call, text or email me

What area are you in Beastman?

I will contact one of my friends to find out where they got theirs from, I don't think they paid more than $1,000 - $1,500.

Very big, heavy duty, specialized and have hydraulic jacks on them. That is my guess. Plus they aren't even in terms of uprights and supports so the steel may be thicker/stronger making it more expensive I don't know.

The reason they are so high is it takes allot of work to make one. I am decent with metal fab. and I couldnt make one. Steel isnt exactly cheap either. I bought mine form Marc Bartley the thing weighs a damn ton(its an older one). Im pretty sur ethat all of them are custom made to, thats why it takes 6-8 weeks to get one after you order it most of the time. best bet is to find a used one to save money or try out that Chubby lift, it looks pretty solid.

There's not exactly a huge market for these things either... You're talking about a huge piece of metal thats difficult to assemble that a very, very small percentage of even powerlifters are going to purchase, so you can't really mass produce them.
