Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist

You're an avid hunter who's just taken down a large buck during your hunting trip, and you want to haul it home to your garage for processing. Or perhaps you're going dry camping in your RV and need to bring an extra generator with you so you can run your AC and stove. This hitch-mounted hoist makes it easier for you to load a heavy deer, generator, cooler, scooter, tool chest, and more into the bed of your pickup truck. This prevents you from trying to manually lift the load up and hurting your back.

Easy to Load and Unload Your Gear

Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist Loading

Once the hoist has been fully assembled, scoot your large deer, heavy bag, or other gear onto the elevator, which is strong and sturdy enough to bear the weight. Because the platform has an open floor design, water won't pool if it's raining, and leaves and other debris won't build up if it's windy.

Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist Winch Handle

To lift your cargo, turn the built-in pawl mechanism away from you before cranking the handle next to it clockwise. The molded, plastic-coated handle is comfortable to hold for longer periods of time, and it won't freeze your hands if it's cold outside and you forgot your gloves at home.

Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist Rotating Platform

When the platform has been lifted all the way up, you can let go of the handle, and the pawl will automatically stop it from crashing to the ground. You can then rotate the platform assembly 360 degrees so you can easily position the load where you need it, which will make it convenient for you to scoot it into your truck bed.

Easy to Assemble and Set Up

Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist Assembly

Once the platform and winch assemblies have been put together with the included hardware, insert the hitch adapter into your truck's hitch receiver using a hitch pin and clip or hitch lock (sold separately). Once it's in place, attach the platform onto the hitch adapter, and then slide the winch assembly onto the hitch adapter.

Save your back and load a heavy deer or generator into and out of your truck bed with this hitch-mounted hoist. You can rotate the platform until it's right over the tailgate, making it easy for you to scoot your gear into your truck bed.


The product works well for lifting my generator in and out of my truck. The package arrived pretty smashed up, but nothing seemed damaged. The instructions refer to different sized bolts that don't match what was in the kit, but it's not hard to figure out and it went together fine, save one missing washer. The platform will make transporting the generator much easier.


I modified it a little so it would fit in the receiver hitch on my 4 wheeler. I like it, have hauled a couple of deer with it. The only problems, (1) I put a pin through it so it would not swivel and (2) and mounted on my wheeler it wants to tilt downward instead of stay level, has a pretty severe downward tilt, have not figured out yet on how to correct it, but overall I am pretty happy with it.


Have not used it yet but it is sturdy and just what I was looking for I will let you know.


It’s a nice unit for lifting so u don’t strain your back


the cranking cable safety locked poorly designed. very frustrating, always having to take it apart and reposition. would not recommend this product


Fastening the winch with the short bolts is difficult. Would suggest running the bolts thru the channel for ease of fastening nuts. Otherwise a quality product.


Missing the nut for the winch handle ?
you tell me what size nut so I can purchase ?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will have our customer service team reach out to you with the missing pieces and make sure you get the complete product.


Need more improvement of the product. Like winch should be more heavy duty, gear parts easily worn out. And locking features so it will not be stolen when not attended. Perhaps thicker metal guage for more durability . Clearance from the ground from the hitch much be little bit higher to prevent touching the ground when the vehicle is loaded.


Works perfectly with my F150 to load and unload my 4500KW generator. Game changer for me!


Absolutely the greatest idea for getting harvested deer on the truck especially if you hunt alone. Not only great for hunting but also great around the farm when lifting heavy items, such as a portable generator, when you have no help around.


Tremendous product! It assembled well, no parts missing, how refreshing. It is such a time saver, no extra help needed loading very heavy items. My only complaint; ~ ~ I DIDN'T HAVE THIS YEARS AGO!!!!


The rollers get stuck often and the crank is cheaply made. Gets the job done though. Haven't had it long enough to say if it's something that will last long but definitely useful to have.


At 83 I was no longer able to lift my 3200 watt generator into my truck bed. The SwiveLift makes this task quite easy.


Really helps out loading heavy items by yourself. The winch that comes with it may be a little week..If you stay under rated lifting may be okay .


My husband loves this... it is perfect for hunting trips if he's alone... generators etc


Very Happy with product. I used it to take off a gas generator - worked perfect.
Can't wait to put a 250 lb. buck on it!!


Love my SwiveLift! Purchased it last year and use it on my Bad Boy Buggy to haul deer out of the woods. It's a backsaver! I even purchased another one this year as a Christmas gift for a friend. Highly recommend this product!

Pam C.


Still very happy with my SwiveLift! Awesome product


It come on time and not damage.

  • How to Determine if Viking Solutions SwiveLift Could Clear Rear Doors of Suburban
    You have to take one simple measurement to know if the Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System # 310-VSL001 would clear your rear doors. You'd need to measure 25 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out and see if at that location the doors can open and close without contact. The SwiveLift has 25 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the upright mast.

  • Will Viking Solutions SwiveLift Work with a Honda EU7000 Generator and 2012 Ford Expedition
    It looks like your Honda EU7000 can potentially weigh 261 pounds dry. The specs I saw state it has a 5.1 gallon gas capacity which would add another 32 pounds for a total of 293 pounds. The Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System # 310-VSL001 is rated for 300 pounds so the fully gassed up generator is just under the capacity for this system. The carrier has 20 inches of travel and can get things up into a truck bed so I am sure it will have enough travel to get your generator into your...

  • Viking Solutions 300 lbs. Capacity SwiveLift Steel Hitch-Mounted Lift
    The Viking Solutions SwiveLift, part # 310-VSL001, actually travels 30 inches from its lowest point to its highest point. The platform can lower up to 15 inches below the bottom of the horizontal receiver tube and then raise up to 30 inches above that. It's designed to basically hit the ground on the bottom and come up to about tailgate level at the top.

  • How Much Does Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System for 2" Hitches Weigh
    The Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System for 2" Hitches part # 310-VSL001 weighs about 50 lbs put together. It comes in 3 pieces and is put together piece by piece for a quick and easy setup. I have attached a video of it being put together so you can gauge rather you can do it yourself.

  • Could Viking Solutions SwiveLift be Left Installed When Travelling
    It's not recommended to travel with the Viking Solutions SwiveLift part # 310-VSL001 installed in your hitch. It probably wouldn't damage itself but it was never tested with this application and it would add quite a bit of length to the rear of your truck. It is pretty easily disassembled though.

  • Will Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist w/ Winch Fit with Smaller Honda Ridgeline Truck Bed Width
    You might not be able to swing it in a complete 360 degree circle, but the Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist w/ Winch # 310-VSL001 will work just fine when it comes to swivel clearance with smaller trucks. The one thing I do recommend checking out though is your ground clearance since the mast on this hoist will hang down 5" below the hitch receiver on your 2012 Honda Ridgeline.

  • Does the Ratchet of the SwiveLift # 310-VSL001 Work for Both Raising and Lowering a Load?
    Yes! You can both raise and lower the Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System for 2" Hitches # 310-VSL001. It is important to note, though, that while lowering the load, the SwiveLift will not stop to suspend the load while lowering like it does in the raising function. You just need to continuously hang onto the handle while lowering. The video I attached talks about the lowering function at timestamp 2:20.

  • How To Move Tray On Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist Closer to Cargo Area on SUV
    I can't really recommend this but the only way to get the floor section closer to the cargo area on the Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist part # 310-VSL001 would be to cut the shank which is made of steel tubing and re-drill a hitch pin hole where you need it. The shank section of the carrier is longer by design so you can set the tailgate down without hitting the upright. Unfortunately, we really don't have any other products that could be used for what you're wanting as it's a rather...

  • Can The Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist 310-VSL001 Be Used For Loading a Fifth Wheel Hitch?
    Yes, the Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist # 310-VSL001 can absolutely be used to help load and unload a heavy sliding fifth wheel hitch from the truck bed. It is generally used for loading deer or generators, but it can be used for really any heavy, cumbersome item as long as it weighs less than 300 lbs. We have seen some folks get very creative in coming up with methods for loading a fifth wheel hitch, and a hoist like the # 310-VSL001 will definitely make this task a lot easier, especially...

  • Recommendation For Installing The Winch On The Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System
    To install the winch on your Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System # 310-VSL001 I recommend finding a long enough 8mm wrench and placing some tape over one side to hold the nut in place and lay the washer on top of the wrench to get it lined up with hole and put the bolt in.

  • Strength & Security of Use While Driving
    I reached out to GSM who manufactures Viking Solutions products about your issue. First, you would not want to drive around with the lift in its lowest position as it would drag on the street. GSM said that can operate your vehicle with the lift partially up, but they do not recommend it. When asked about driving with a load on the lift, but fully up and swiveled over the tailgate they said there would be no problem with that. Of course you will want to secure your load to the lift platform,...

  • Can the Viking Solutions JackRack Magnum Hoist Adjust to a Lower Height?
    I have a solution for you, but the Viking Solutions Rack Jack # 310-VMH001 hoist is secured via bolt on to the lower tube and there are no additional mounting holes on that lower tube it without voiding any warranty or compromising the integrity of the construction. If the height/length of the jack is the main concern, I recommend going with the Viking Solutions SwiveLift Loading System for 2" Hitches # 310-VSL001 . This lift is 55" tall compared to the 81"+ of the Rack Jack and has an...

  • Availability of SwiveLift Loading System with Shorter Stinger to Use with a 2014 Buick Enclave
    While Vikings Solutions doesn't make the SwiveLift Loading System # 310-VSL001 with a shorter stinger, you may be able to utilize the Rack Jack II Hoist # 310-VRJ001 instead for your 2014 Buick Enclave since you can push your cargo in towards your rear hatch area while letting some of the cable out. Aside from that there isn't anything else that would accomplish what you're trying to do short of using loading ramps and finding a way to mount a winch inside your SUV.

  • Ways to Make Loading E-Bikes and Generators Easier Loaded in Truck
    We have e-bike racks that have ramps built into them like the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 which would completely eliminate having to lift your bikes onto the ramp. Then for a way to make loading your generator easier we have the Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist # 310-VSL001 which installs in your hitch and uses a winch to raise a platform that your generator would ride on and swivel into your truck bed. These both can't be used at same time since they both install in a trailer hitch.

  • Can I Use the SwivelLift # 310-VSL001 to Load My Scooter into the Back of My SUV?
    Technically, as long as your scooter weighs less than 300 pounds and can fit on the 36-1/2" long x 21-1/4" wide platform of the Viking Solutions SwivelLift # 310-VSL001, it can hold your scooter and raise it from the ground to your rear cargo area. Although, there is an issue when it comes to your trunk. The only way that it is possible to use the # 310-VSL001 is by first opening your trunk, installing the lift, loading the scooter, and then uninstalling the lift to close the trunk. With...

  • Can A Scooter Be Secured To The Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist # 310-VSL001 For Traveling?
    The Viking Solutions SwiveLift Hoist w/ Winch # 310-VSL001 while being able to lift up to 300lbs was not designed to travel with a load. Instead you may want to use the Flint Hill Goods 30" x 50" Wheelchair Carrier # FHG77ZR which is designed for driving down the road with up to 500lbs of weight.

  • Dimension of Lower Leg on Viking Solutions SwiveLift
    These lifts are not in stock at this moment otherwise I would go measure this for you. Our best estimate is that the portion of the vertical tube below the 2" horizontal tube measures between 4 to 7 inches. If you are asking about the platform - it does not have to be lower all the way down. I have attached a picture illustrating this. You will also need a hitch pin and clip to attach this to your receiver. You can use the etrailer # C21504 zinc coated pin.
