Crysteel Mfg - Hoists & Dump BodiesCrysteel Lo-Boy Hoist

 

The proven Lo-Boy hoist is engineered for easy installation, ease of operation, safety and long service life. Its low profile adds no body height, keeping the load low. The Lo-Boy is designed with a far-forward lift point, providing easier load elevation and greater stability.

Six models are available with 5-27 ton lifting capacity. All feature premium cylinders made from high-strength honed steel tubing and have chromed shafts, close-tolerance pistons and high-pressure seals. High-pressure hydraulics produce more power with less weight.

A power beyond port and reservoir mounted valve are additional features only found on Crysteel’s Lo-boy hoists. A 5-year warranty backs the durable Lo-Boy hoist.
