As a fantastic accessory for any small gantry crane, this “Winching pole” is a great way to lift the load without getting tangled in chain, ropes or cables. The manual hoist winch is designed to balance away from your work, be at your working height, and pivot away to where you need it. Uses a simple mechanical hand winch — which is so much easier than pulling a bunch of chain, or wrestling with a come-along.

Hoist Winch Details:
These are the perfect crane &/or engine hoist accessories. The “Winching Pole”, as we like to call it, is a mechanical hoist winch that makes the load easy to lift while staying out of the way. The load leveler is even simpler. These are the perfect accessories to go with our Mobile Overhead Crane or any other brand crane for that matter.
The “Winching Pole” is a hand crank winch engineered to balance the handle and crank away from your work and to stay out of the way. It also reduces the head height required by other devises like chain falls or “come-alongs” so you have more space for lifting and working under the crane. Most of all, there are no chains or cables to drop down and get in the way!
The load leveler is a quick and easy way to level a load. It’s a really simple design to build in an hour or so, and cost a fraction of those commercially available. It’s not as easy to adjust as some, but very simple and functional. These two accessories make lifting tasks much easier. Build both today.
Construction requires steel cutting and drilling (& optionally, welding).
Load Capacity is entirely dependent on the options and purchase components.*
Plans include both the Winching Pole and the Load Leveler together with easy to follow, fully illustrated instructions. . . . More on What is in the Plans . . . These are the perfect accessories to go with our Mobile Overhead Crane and our Perfect Garage Size Crane.
* Load capacity for both products will vary with equipment, materials, construction techniques, options, assembly methods and proper load distribution. Do not exceed manufactures limits for purchase components. Always use Extreme Caution when lifting.
