- Hoist works OK, but lift chain is closer to 102" Review by GV
Price Value Quality
I ordered this hoist because the specs said it had a 10' lift, but upon receiving the unit and extending the lift chain all the way, it measured only 102". Also, even though the brand name is Grand Rapids Industrial Products, this unit is *not* made in the USA, it is made in China, which I'm sure is why the lift chain is so far off spec. I contacted Rural King about this and the best they could do was RMA the unit or offer me a refund of half my shipping costs. Since I needed the tool right away and since just about everything made in China is junk and I had no reason to believe the next unit would be any better (if not worse), I took the partial refund.
The hoist works OK, but beware if you really need a full 10' lift, you won't get it with this product.
