I need to buy a truck hoist to load and unload implements(500 to 1 ton) off of my flatbed truck.Do you know where I could buy one and what to get or not to get.

This one was 99.00 not including freight. It lifts a max of 1,000 pounds. Sold by Cumming's Tool they are on line also. I like it and the price was right. Mark H.

I'll be darn - i made one similar for loading firewood, only it's winch-driven. It started out on the bed of a truck but it's handier on the trailer. Mine is basically a 2" angle-iron triangle, the front (pulling) arm (where the winch is) comes up and back from the tongue and the other 2 are just lateral braces. They bolt together and there's a pulley about 6 feet above the front of the trailer bed. I used a 2500-lb ATV winch & it can drag any log we have around here. For juice i clamp a hot-wire jumper on the battery and touch the ground (then ya hafta switch wires to reverse the winch :)

It has quite a lift on it. It is at mid point right now in the picture. You could allways use a come-a-long to lift stuff high with it. Mark H.

Northern Tools has one in their cataloge ( Also check with Willy N over on the N board or at in the forum. He has a trailer that he put a hoist on and did a really good job with it.
