Winch Boom Turns Forklift into Portable Crane

Rockford-Ill.-based Construction Lifters, a division of the Caldwell Group, now offers a winch boom that can turn a forklift into a portable crane. The new winch boom combines the reach of a forklift boom with the precise lifting of a winch, adding value and functionality to lift trucks. The winch boom fits standard fork lift trucks and is an economical alternative to an overhead or gantry crane.

The product is available in fixed, telescopic and pivoting telescopic models with winch hook capacities of 2,000 or 2,400 pounds. Standard operation is 110-volt electrical, with optional DC or hydraulic winch operation available on any model.
