Olympic Series Hoists

The high capacity Olympic Series Hoists remain the standard of the industry for reliability, strength and torsional stability. They provide remarkable resistance to body twist and the danger of upset loads.

Specifically designed to counter off-center loads and non-level dumping conditions, the patented Olympic design has proven itself on the job over and over again.

With six models to choose from and the wide range of lifting capacities, there’s an Olympic Series Hoist to fit any working package you require.


  • Hoist components are fabricated from special high-strength steel
  • Piston rods and cylinder stages are hard chromed and high polished to ensure long cylinder life
  • Unique patented design results in greater torsional stability for resistance to body twist under uneven loads, on non-level surfaces and for dumping on the fly
  • Self-centering cylinder saddles reduce the possibility of seal or cylinder wall damage
  • Patented frame stop prevents the hoist from going over center and the cylinders from bottoming out
  • High pressure fittings and hoses for greater safety and hoist longevity
  • Low profile reduced mounting height eliminates theneed to cut body cross-members
  • Hoist can be mounted in either direction for easy, quick and flexible installation
  • Lifting capacities are greater and the reach is longerthan other stabilizer type hoists due to advanced design and superior materials
  • PTO driven direct mount gear pump is standard. Remote mount gear pump or high pressure, positive displacement piston pump available as options.
