    I purchased the 603, which is the half ton size and I must say I am impressed at what it can do and how well it is built. I bought this primarily to lift my zero turn mower deck up to change out blades so I didn’t need anything larger in size. My guess is it’s lifting no more than 700 lbs, I have a heavymower deck with about 260 pounds of counterweights on the front end which adds to the heft. Because it is solidly built, I am quite comfortable lifting this weight and working under it. I do still use car jacks as backup of course for safety. I looked at cheaper Harbor Freight offshore brands before buying this one and I am glad I spent the extra bucks went this way. When it comes to hoists, don’t skimp. This little 603 packs a lot of punch in a very small package.

    Used one at work and like it. So I bought one for around the house and to keep in the truck when I go hunting, just used to pull a blow down off the road. Great Little Tool

  3. Jeff Boyles

    Very well-built compact hoist. Great for limited headroom applications. I purchased both the 1/4 and 1/2 ton units. Small enough to store in a small tool bag.

How do I perform a hook inspection?

Examine hooks for the following:

  • Missing or illegible hook manufacturer’s identification or secondary manufacturer’s identification
  • Missing or illegible rated load identification
  • Excessive pitting or corrosion
  • Cracks, nicks, or gouges
  • Wear—any wear exceeding 10% (or as recommended by the manufacturer) of the original section dimension of the hook or its load pin
  • Deformation—any visible apparent bend or twist from the plane of the unbent hook
  • Throat opening—any distortion causing an increase in throat opening of 5% not to exceed 1/4” (6mm), or as recommended by the manufacturer
  • Inability to lock—any self-locking hook that does not lock
  • Inoperative latch (if provided)—any damaged latch or malfunctioning latch that not close the hook’s throat
  • Damaged, missing, or malfunctioning hook attachment and securing means
  • Thread wear, damage, or corrosion
  • Evidence of heat exposure or unauthorized welding
  • Evidence of unauthorized alterations such as drilling, machining, grinding, or other modifications

If signs of any of those listed above are visually apparent, then use of said hook is mandated to be out of service until proper repair by qualified personnel has been performed.

How often should I perform a hook inspection?

In order to ensure your safety, the ASME requires hooks to be periodically inspected once a month. If a professional recommends even more often, then this supersedes the periodic monthly inspection.
