have you though of mounting the battery/charger at floor level and running 
heavy cable up to the winch..  Maybe a couple of #4 stranded copper cables 
(or even #2 welding cable) clamped to the gantry frame up to the winch. You 
could leave enough slack for winch movement and support the cables with a 
festoon type arrangement.. Battery easy to maintain.. no heavy lifting and 
you'll probably keep it charged more often when it's accessible  ????


"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in 
good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be 
treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to 
discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or 
origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an 
American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance 
here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an 
American at all.

We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red 
flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as 
much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are 
hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English 
language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty 
to the American people"  ...Theodore Roosevelt 1907
