Versatility to Handle Tough Jobs

Versatility to Handle Tough Jobs

A Chore-Master on the Farm

From handling beef, hogs and other livestock for processing to effortlessly loading tanks and pumps, lifting ATVs into pickups and more, this hoist is always right at home on the farm.

A Power Lifter in the Service Shop

This hoist stows out of the way in a corner when not in use, but steps up to handle jobs requiring up to 2,000 lbs. capacity. This powerful hoist is ideal for raising riding mowers or utility vehicles for servicing, pulling engines, moving heavy equipment and a variety of other tasks that take the lifting burden off the operator's back.

Masterful at Material Handling

The Roughneck manual lever chain hoist can be configured in a variety of different ways to get the job done right. Moving, transporting, hoisting … you name it, you can probably find a way for this unit to help out.

Dependable On-Site Performance

This hoist is a consistently hard worker at the construction site. Whether it's pulling a welding machine off a truck or keeping wheelbarrows or other gear up and out of reach at the end of the day, you can count on a ton of steady performance.

A Natural Deck Hand

At the marina or near the water, this hoist shines. From lifting a boat into a boathouse (2 hoists may be required for this maneuver) to hang-storing a jet ski for the winter or even pulling an I/O engine, this hoist is onboard to help get the job done.

Loaded with Features

Simple One-Hand Operation

The hoist features one-hand operation with the best free chaining available! A self-locking lever is easy to use and controls the pulling direction of the unit, while the rubber handle grip on the lever provides comfort and a sure, no-slip grip.

Easy Trolley Rigging

Get rigged quickly while saving your patience with a built-in heavy-duty top hook that pivots and swivels a complete 360 degrees, making it a snap to attach to a trolley crane, gantry crane or beam clamp. The handle also rotates 360 degrees to provide the most convenient access.

Perfect for Tight Spaces

The compact design requires just 13 inches of headroom for effective operation. The small size allows for use under stairways, in cramped rooms, inside closets and in other tight spots where ordinary hoists might not work. To top it off, the handle rotates a full 360° for easy rigging in any space.

Built to Last & Ready to Work

All-Steel Construction Resists Wear & Tear

We didn't hold back when putting this hoist together — all-steel construction ensures its toughness. The parts are built to stand up to the rigors of heavy use and provide lasting performance you can count on down the road.

Use it Indoors or Outside!

Enclosed gear housing seals out the elements, preventing moisture or foreign particles from fouling moving parts and making this hoist suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

A Hook that Stays Hooked

The heavy-duty hardened steel hanging hook and swiveling load hook both feature a high-strength locking fastener that won't pop loose during the toughest of jobs. The result is not only exceptional functionality, but safety as well.

Less Friction for Smooth Performance

The hoist utilizes a combination of roller and ball bearing construction to reduce friction. Guide slots also guard against jamming and slipping, providing super smooth performance during lifting and lowering.

Safety First

Stop Your Load Anywhere

The automatic double-pawl braking system allows you to quickly, safely and solidly secure a load at any height. No pre-set stopping points; you pick the desired securing height.

Tested (and Proven) to 150% Capacity!

This Roughneck manual lever chain hoist is tested at 150% load capacity to ensure it can withstand the rigors that you will put it through and still reliably stand up to the task at hand.
