Easy to use! The E Z Farm Porta Lift utilizes a reliable and efficient winch system. It is completely automatic: no levers to adjust, or brake to set. When lifting, a "clicking" noise is heard; when lowering, it is silent. The handle will not continue to turn if it is released; brake will set automatically. Lift small animals up to 300 lbs. easily and quickly.
Our recommended Winch is a hand operated, posi-brake winch which contains a self-activated, dual pad friction brake mechanism that automatically locks the load securely in position when the handle is released. This prevents accidental loss of load. Safety Note: All winches used with the EZ Farm Porta Lift must be designed for lifting. Winches that are not specifically designed for lifting have the risk of freewheeling handles when accidentally released, endangering the load as well as the operator.
The EZ Farm Porta Lift works great over a chute. When weighing large numbers of animals: place 2 of the wood legs on the back side of the chute and the leg with the winch on the working side of the chute. Utilize a chute with front and rear guillotine gates and the EZ Farm Porta Lift works easily and efficiently.

These straps each have a buckle in the center which allows for ease in tightening or loosening the straps as well as easy release of the animal.

If the animal is pregnant, consult your veterinarian before attempting to lift. The Weigh Sling is intended to be used for short periods of time, not for lengthy stays.

REGULAR SLING Size 14" wide X 33" long (with strap handle 58" long). This sling works well with the EZ Farm Porta Lift. It is identical to the adjustable sling except it does not have any of the strap hardware or the straps. We find that it works well with young animals up to about 100 lbs, but is more difficult to use with larger or flighty animals as it may move forward or backward, making it more difficult to keep in the center of the animal.. REGULAR SLING - Price: $42.50
Please e-mail you order if shipping out of the USA as it will need to be calculated separately.
