I have a lift the longest extension I can find will only get me to the hight of 15' three feet short of what I need and I am not looking forward to renting a butt load of scaffolding for one room on a vaulted ceiling.

yeah I know! I might have to go to my buddies machine shop and have him custom make me one.. I think it is stupid not to have a lift that does not make a extension that goes to at least 20' it sucks working scaffolding and getting the sheets up it then putting them up ugh.

I could be wrong but I think the reason they don't go that high is they would become quite top heavy and hard to control and easy to tip.

I would be inclined to agree....

Mine goes up to 12'.....and when you have a 4x12 sheet on it at 11'....it was starting to get scary....you don't make any sudden moves....

I bought two six foot extensions cut in half and welded it to the other six footer and ran a bit more cable and the thing works fine a bit on the wobbly but it beats any other way.
