The closest match to what the Torin Shop Crane does, with a winch, would be Northern Tools Item # 29254 but would not have the same capacity and would have to be modified to be mobile.

Question

What is the maximum boom extension at 1/2 ton?

One use for this hoist will be in removing & refitting hardtop from a car, so needs to reach to center of roof to work for that application. Many thanks -- though most basic specs do include all capacity/extension figures, couldn't find this info on the site.

answer 2
If yours is like mine then all 6 wheels swivel. I like that the legs fold up to save storage space. This unit is a dream to use even with big block engines and it rolls easily on concrete level floors even with a load in place. Remember to keep the loads between the wheels. Extend out too far and it can get nose heavy!
