Turn a Two Man Job into One

Drywall sheets can weigh up to 105 pounds making installation a two man (or even three man) job. With a Troy drywall lift, you can install full sheets of drywall in a fraction of the time and you can do it all on your own. The Troy drywall lift is easy to setup, simple to operate, and is built from commercial grade steel. It is rugged enough to be used on a professional job site and easy enough for a do-it-yourself job in your own home.

    Support Hooks: Secures the drywall on the lift and prevents it from sliding off during placement. Also helps pivot the drywall sheet into place so it is flush against the wall and adds support to prevent the edges of drywall sheets from getting crushed and broken.

    Telescoping Arms: Extend and allow you to hoist even monster 16-foot sheets of drywall. Sheets this size can weigh up to 105 pounds and would require a few people to install without a drywall lift.

    Consumer Review
    Just adequate
    I bought this hoist because I knew hanging 83 sheets of sheet rock would take to long to rent one with my schedule. Upon delivery I opened the box which was totally wrapped in packing tape and inspected it for quality. At first glance I was disappointed with the workmanship and design. But after tightening some bolts and assembly I was ready. Now for the test, a full 16′ sheet. Unfortunately the support arms only extend to 9′ so I needed to make “T” braces to hold the sheet ends up in place which worked fine. I even had no problems hanging 14′ 5/8″ fire code rock in my garage with 10′ ceilings. If I was a professional drywall contractor though I would modify it some to make it more durable and lengthen the support arms to extend 12′. Over all I am happy with this product for a one time job and it is definitely worth the $164.00 and I would buy it again if needed. So, hang away and be happy too!

    this is dangerous
    I am a customer home builder for the last 31 years. We rent a drywall lift couple times a year, but with business slow we are hanging our selves so I ordered this lift. It is not safe, my guys refuse to use it. The arms bend, the welds were broken in 2 areas when we opened the box, the mechanizm that is supposed to hold the drywall in place slips. We took it apart twice to see if we did something wrong, but it is a copy cat, looks the same but it is of very poor quality.
