Anybody know what it is called? Simple little machine that rolls up huge slides with straps? It has a winch attached. I am getting tired wrapping up by hand.

No. This was a winch attached to a contraption that rolled the slide up by pulling both straps in. It was at the iaapalooza.

There is another machine that I have seen that rolls by inserting a bar inside of the roll, 2 long arms are then attached to the side of the bar with stabilizer feet. The bars are then pulled back and forward on a ratchet that releases on the back stroke / rolls on the forward. At the end the bar collapses and is pulled form the unit. Only seen this once but it looked interesting.

You actually don't need much to do it. I've gotten really good at rolling inflatables with a winch and two straps. I have my winch and battery mounted to a small hand truck. I use this method to deal with waterlogged inflatables or when I have to pick up something over 400 pounds by myself. I've even used the winch to help make the final fold on a water slide and to load the inflatable on the dolly.

bestjump,

Could you post some pics or better, a video of your setup. I would like to check it out. Also, did you make your straps or by them for kids attractions or whoever it was selling those things??

I use two 27' long heavy duty ratchet straps, minus the ratchets. The advantage to using two seperate straps is that you don't have to have them under the inflatable before you do the setup, you just push them under the edges after folding. I will get some pics and a video for you this weekend.

You can buy a 110 volt winch, or you can just hook a 12 volt winch up to a battery charger. By the way, I run this winch on power wheels replacement battery bought off eBay. They are sealed, so no acid leaks and they are small. I can roll several inflatables before recharging.

Thanks for the video. I use a 110v system to roll up after I complete repairs. The 110v hoists run at 30fpm where the 12v winches run at 6 fpm. I make the dual strap with adjusters so you don't have to retie when the hook reaches the winch. You just pay out the cable and shorten the straps as it unwinds and then forward again. My wife and I can roll up the largest of slides, up hill without any issues. Saves allot of back work and pain. Again, thanks for the video!!

Thanks, guys!!!

The winch I use is from harbor freight, on sale right now for $119. http://www.harborfre...rake-68145.html

It pulls at 23 fpm's with no load, and rolling an inflatable does not come anywhere near it's load capacity of 3000 pounds.
