Iin barn Manlift

Employee is almost as old as I am. His knees are getting sore on him. 
I need a man lift/elevator to service a single story-about 9 or 10 feet.
I have seen a 1-2T. chain hoist used with a basket for the elevator. Years have dimmed the actual construction.
Does anyone have suggestions/ description and/or photograph of an acceptable piece of equipment?
We are construction capable, need suggestions and/or pointers.

I have one of these for apple tree pruning. Just a 9" ford rear with a roller chain running from hydraulic motor to the pinion shaft. Add three cylinders for lift, side to side, and steering. Not that much to it!
