What's Included
  • (1) Manual chain hoist

A Versatile Performer in the Field

Compact Power in the Shop

This powerful hoist is compact enough to stow out of the way in a corner when not in use, but steps up to handle the big jobs. It's an ideal choice for raising riding mowers for servicing, pulling engines, moving heavy equipment and a variety of other tasks.

Countless Material Handling Configurations

This compact powerhouse isn't just a one-trick pony — it can be configured in a variety of different ways to get the job done right. Moving, transporting, hoisting … you name it, this unit is bound to find a way 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 getting dependable performance.

A Chore Master on the Farm

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

At Home Near the Water

This hoist can handle a variety of tasks around the marina or near the water. Use it to hang-store water toys, lift boats onto a trailer or rack, pull an I/O engine and much more.

Loaded with Features

2 Chain Colors for Easy I.D.

The easy-to-identify two-tone chain features a durable black finish lift chain, plus a zinc-plated pull chain so you can tell which operation you're about to perform at a glance.

Easy Trolley Rigging

Get rigged quickly while saving your patience with a built-in heavy-duty hook that swivels a complete 360 degrees, making it a snap to attach to a trolley or beam clamp. Using the trolley or beam clamp also allows you to hang the hoist from weight-compatible I-beams, or from a gantry crane.

Perfect for Tight Spaces

The ultra compact design requires just 12.5 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.

Built To Last

Built to Last and Ready to Work

All-Steel Construction Resists Wear and 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 Inside or Out

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 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.

Rust-Resistant Chain

The 10-ft. long x 3/16in. thick Grade 80 chains not only help you manage the load, but also resist rust for many years of strong, dependable use.

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.

No-Slip Chain Wheel

The hand chain wheel uses a unique deep-groove design that helps prevent annoying slippage, smoothing the raising or lowering process and improving overall performance.

Tested (and Proven) to 150% Capacity!

This Roughneck manual 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.
