What's a Module Hoist, Anyway?

A module hoist, also known as a PV panel hoist or material hoist, is a mechanical device designed to lift and transport PV panels to elevated areas like roofs or scaffolding.

These hoists are valuable tools for solar installers because they can significantly reduce the physical strain and time needed to manually carry panels and other too up ladders or scaffolding. 

Save Money & Time

When traditional roof delivery is not feasible, a roofing material hoist is the best alternative on the market.

By utilizing a roofing material hoist, you can significantly expedite your project timeline and reduce labor costs, as it minimizes the need for manual lifting and carrying.

Laddervators are a reliable and practical choice for ensuring the job goes smoothly even in challenging delivery scenarios.

Four Reasons to Use a Module Hoist


Material hoists require very little room to operate and fit right in your truck easily. They also are not super heavy and can easily be moved around by just one or two workers.


Material hoists are meant to speed up the job process. They take under 10 minutes to set up and require just one professional to operate (and they don't require special training either).


Unlike boom trucks, material hoists allow you to book jobs on your own schedule without relying on another company's availability, especially during busy season.


When crews can't get roof-loaded, they'll sometimes opt to carry materials up themselves, violating OSHA. Material hoists protect against this and keep your team safe.
