Description

Description

As a fantastic accessory for any small gantry crane, the “Winching pole” is a great way to lift a load without getting tangled in chain, ropes or cables.  The manual hoist winch is designed to balance away from your work, yet be at your working height, and pivot to where you need it.  It also pivots out of the way so you can work.

Uses a simple mechanical hand winch — which is so much easier than pulling a bunch of chain, or wrestling with a come-along.

Although the winching pole is primarily an accessory for lifting with a crane, it has many other uses.  For instance, this poles is a much easier way to do the things a come-a-long does.  We have used it as a vehicle rescue winch, a log puller, and for landscaping in pulling out small trees and bushes.  Sure, it’s a little bigger than a come-a-long, but it’s more convenient and has a much longer reach.

This winch pole is much faster than a come-a-long, and slower than a bumper mounted winch, yet it’s cheaper and far more flexible and portable.  It also requires a lot less maintenance and no batteries. Ideal for a hoist, or hand winch.

More About The Design Features

More About The Design Features

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 gantry crane for that matter.

Hoist Winch Pole PlansThe “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.
