The pallet truck hoist is an affordable and practical alternative for lifting and lowering loads to and from elevated work stations. It provides workers with a mobile lifting jib that quickly secures to a standard 27" x 48" pallet truck. Fork pockets measure 7-5/8" W x 1-7/8" H inside. Once installed the pallet truck can still be used with most pallets and skids allowing for transport of heavy pallet loads while retaining the ability to lift and lower loads to and from the pallet. It uses a clutchless cable winch with 80" of cable (88" with hook and shackle) for easy lifting and lowering. Steel construction with water-based enamel coat.
