Electric Hoist Conversions for Crank-Up Towers

Finally, a true bolt on conversion for manual winch crank-up towers!  The hoist mount allows an electric hoist (purchased separately) to directly bolt on to most crank-up towers, replacing the original hand crank winch.  The mount consists of a heavy, solid platform to attach the hoist.  Designed for Northern Tool or Harbor Freight hoists.  Mount can be easily modified to work with other brands if desired.

I am very pleased with the Hoist bracket and set-up Chris!  It fit perfectly and works flawlessly.  Nice powder coat job.  My only concern would be about the quality of the hoist, but certainly not the bracket.  You build things like I do and prefer to have built.  A good quality bracket engineered with a healthy safety margin.  Good Job!

  1.     Bolt on conversion, no drilling.

  2.     Heavy steel construction, precision MIG welded, powdercoat paint OR

            hot dip galvanized...send us an email for details.

  1.     Hoist bolt pattern ready, tower bolt pattern ready.

  2.     Uses your existing cable; just wind it around the drum on the new hoist.

  3.     Ridiculously fast raising speeds:  60 seconds on a 50’ crank-up tower.

This product is made to order on a case-by-case basis.  It will work on most late model crank-up towers.  The hoists listed above have been tested on 50 and 70 foot towers. 

Cost:  $150-225 depending on tower model.  If interested, send me an email with the following information: Tower brand, model, and size.  Also include pictures of your current winch.  I need to see how it mounts to tower; pictures from side and rear (looking through tower) would be helpful.  After getting this information I can discuss the next steps.  I will likely send your photos back with annotations of the measurements I need so bolt holes can go in the correct positions (see photos below).  Customer will need to purchase the above hoist.

Examples of annotated photos showing needed measurements.  Due to the dozens of tower models out there, I am finding it is impossible to do a universal, one size fits all hoist mount.  Even similar tower models of different vintage are completely different!

N1NK sourced a local canvas shop to build a neat weatherproof cover for his hoist.  There is a slot in the top for the cable to go through.

Here is another solution for a weatherproof cover made from coroplast.

Great job and quick response. Works great for me! Thanks Chris
