What is the distance between the ceiling and the bottom of the top (when hoisted)?
To be faaaaaaair, I have not seen a Racor first hand, just going off of video's and photo's. I also have not been able to find the Racor in-stock yet, but there I did find one like it from Fleximounts.
I have an attic access in my garage, with plenty of head room in that area of the attic. I do however not want to have to get into the attic repeatedly (I do about once every year or 2 now), I also Don't want the a hot attic to cause a hoist to fail (I don't think it would, but never tried), and I plan to insulate above the garage at some point, so will need to find away to create an air dam if I do.
Sorry, just saw this.
45 1/2" from ceiling to bottom of top
Again: could get rid of about 7+" of eye bolt and cable if I needed to and get it under 40"
