Cranky is a portable roof winch that is designed to easily and safely haul items, such as motors, compressors, and toolboxes up to the roof, according to the company. It can tote items up to 300 pounds. The device telescopes, making it compact for transport. The roof winch slips on and off the support post, allowing service technicians to carry it from job to job. Its support permanently mounts to each building. According to the manufacturer, the winch eliminates the need for a traditional light crane and resolves associated scheduling problems on many service jobs.
