Hilka Pro-Craft 1Tonne Heavy Duty Chain Block
Pulled a tree
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.

Simple & reliable
Originally bought this chain block to install and remove oversize hanging baskets from the fontage of a hotel - mounted about 3.5 metres up weighing approx 100kg each.
Very simple to operate - just the job saving me from employing more sophisticated (= more expensive) solutions. Now use it all the time around the workshop and on site when necessary.

Fantastic Chain Block
What a bargain. Fabulous value for the money. Good for the job and more I don't know why I never purchased one before.
