Doable for lighter loads without drilling or changing the lift. You can mount hand winch and pulley to each end of boom by inserting smaller channel with winch and pulley attached. (However, remember it is your decision and liability.)
No, lift only goes down so far, not touching ground. item in truck can only be around 40" in height, truck beds are around 30"-36" and crane lift will max out at 7' so you need room for lift and strap or set up to lift object off truck bed.
No, the chain will not reach all the way to the ground.
Thank you for your interest in one of our MaxxHaul products. If the load less then 500lbs the height range this crane can lift is 30" to 84" Also be aware if the height of the load plus anchor point is less than 30"
The crane can reach from 30 in. to 84 in.
Unfortunately, this is only available online.
