The Sumner Roust-A-Bout enables one man to lift and place loads in tight locations that would be impossible with other lifts. This dependable lift can raise a 1,500 lb. load to heights up to 18 feet in minutes. In addition, the load can be moved vertically and horizontally at the same time. The Roust-A-Bout eliminates the need for many other tools such as come alongs, scaffolds, monorails, and swing booms.
