Hydraulic Hoist

The Garlock SuperMax 2000 Hydraulic Hoist combines big lifting capacity and fast line speed to help you lift heavier loads faster. The key to productivity is lifting capacity and line speed.

You get 2,000-pound single-line hoisting power and a blazing 160 feet-per-minute line speed. That's why this hoist is called the SuperMax 2000.
