"Bought this to help load a 20ft tree with massive root ball onto a trailer, 4 of us could not move this tree an inch, went and picked this up at my local branch, half an hour later the tree was sat happily in the back of the trailer, it's very easy to use, requiring very little effort, have rated fair for reliability only due to the fact that the nuts holding the casing on worked loose and the chain got tangled inside, had to take it apart and relocate the chain on its gear, I think this is only due to using it in a horizontal position and the chain rattled the casing a lot more than if used for its purpose....vertical lifts. But it saved us from 4 bad backs and numerous trips to the chiropractor. Good bit of kit for not too much money."
"I bought these to help my husband lift 2 heavy beams whilst altering an existing building. He couldn't have done it without them and they enabled him to do it on his own!! Brilliant piece of kit. There is a problem with one of them so I will take it back and get a replacement but that certainly won't put us off using them or recommending them in the future."
