Heavy-Duty Material Hoist 400lb Capacity HD-400

Safety Hoist roofing ladders are more versatile, less damaging to driveways and landscaping, and a fraction of the cost of boom trucks and roofing conveyors. They reduce the risk of injury, the back-breaking labor, and the amount of time required to move material from the ground to the roof. They also allow you to off-load to hard-to-reach places.

Choose the right solution–the Safety Hoist™ ladder lift


HD-400 Heavy-Duty Material Hoistproductpic1-hd400Each Safety Hoist ladder hoist is simple to operate. Its one-person operation requires very little training. All of our power ladders are durable yet light weight, which makes them easily portable. Our roofing ladders are perfect for moving material to where it actually needs to go—high-pitched roofs and hard-to-reach areas included. No special tools are required for assembly or operation, and units are field repairable in minutes.

Our shingle elevators are safe and OSHA-compliant. Our unique unloading ramp allows you to discharge materials away from the edge of the roof for increased safety and efficiency. Our custom support brace provides extra support for longer ladder lengths. All of this combines to reduce both the risk of injuries and injuries themselves.

Your savings in medical leave days and workers compensation claims make our ladderlifts even more cost-effective than other automated approaches for moving materials. You also save time, effort, and labor costs.

Introducing the all-new Emergency Stop from Safety Hoist™
Worker safety has always been the driving force behind the products we develop. Our first material hoists decreased injuries from improper lifting and carrying of heavy loads. The patent-pending Emergency Stop protects workers from the danger of carriage plunge. If a cable snaps or the brake system fails, a Safety Hoist carriage equipped with the Emergency Stop will stop automatically without the operator having to push a button or take any other action.

We strongly recommend this safety upgrade for both existing and new Safety Hoist models. Choose retro-fit kit ES-500 for your current HD-400 or purchase the Emergency Stop upgrade along with a new HD-400 Safety Hoist and it will be installed for you before delivery.

Each Emergency Stop is

  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Solid steel construction
  • Everything you need to install the retro-fit kit yourself
  • Installed for you if you purchase the upgrade along with a new Safety Hoist
