EasyLoad Hoist Lifts Up to 500 kg

National Fleet Products recently announced the availability of its new MAD EasyLoad Hoist. The quiet, powerful, easy-to-install hoist was on display at the 2018 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, last March.

The MAD EasyLoad Hoist is the intelligent alternative to post-mounted cranes. The EasyLoad remains inside the vehicle, away from the elements, and can be stowed above shelving on either side of the vehicle or in the center of the cargo hold until needed. Its boom is easily positioned for the task at hand because it can move on 2 axes, sliding laterally up to 2.4 m, depending on the vehicle, and extending up to 115.5 cm in length.

“The dual-axis MAD EasyLoad Hoist makes it easy for operators to lift and lower cargo with pinpoint accuracy because they don’t have to worry about positioning the vehicle in exact relationship to a target,” said Steven Peterson, president of National Fleet Products. “The EasyLoad allows operators to navigate cargo through manholes and to position the winch for optimal load securement, even when the host vehicle isn’t perfectly oriented.”

A robust 12 V, 100 A electric motor drives the boom and winch action, lifting maximum loads at up to 2 cm/s, at lengths of up to 19.8 m. Hand-held controls are easy to understand and operate even with one hand, and a 2.4 m cable enables operators to position themselves safely in relationship to cargo as the EasyLoad moves. Unlike most winches, the EasyLoad operates quietly, allowing verbal communication to continue even during its operation.

The MAD EasyLoad Hoist is simple to install in only about 4 hours. A low-profile tubular steel structure is easily configured to fit virtually any commercial van, service vehicle or box truck. The design transfers the load to the floor, and the 4-legged configuration maintains structural integrity by attaching to the rear doorframe and interior structural members with just 4 brackets. Cast iron mounting feet secure the framework to the deck. The system is easy to wire, and a simple door switch prevents the hoist from operating when the vehicle is closed.  

Unlike post-mounted cranes that can lose lifting capacity when fully extended, the MAD EasyLoad Hoist provides full-length boom travel with no loss of capacity. With its 115.5 cm boom extension combined with a 500 kg lifting capability, it also outperforms the majority of vehicle-based post-mounted cranes. 

The EasyLoad not only offers better lifting characteristics, but it has superior loading capabilities as well. Unlike swiveling cranes that do well positioning a load at the threshold of a cargo hold, the EasyLoad can take the load well into the cargo space, forward of the vehicle’s rear axle, depositing it with its unique dual-axis precision. 

The 500 kg capacity, heavy-duty EasyLoad Hoist weighs 150 kg, minus its steel framework, which varies according to the vehicle it serves. Its boom is 2.3 m in length when fully retracted, and its winch uses a 4 mm steel cable. The light-duty EasyLoad Hoist can lift up to 250 kg and weighs only 100 kg, minus its steel framework. Its boom is just 1.9 m in length when fully retracted. Both systems are easy to maintain, requiring just one annual service interval and periodic cable inspections.
