Easily load and unload cargo and equipment into and out of your pickup truck bed with this heavy-duty, hitch-mounted crane. Hydraulic ability eliminates the need for wiring and provides smooth, controlled operation.


Hitch-Mounted Design

MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane

This crane conveniently slides into your 2-inch trailer hitch receiver, leaving your truck bed open so that you can easily load all of your cargo. The T-style base ensures that the crane sits off to the side of your truck so that you get absolute clearance for moving items into and out of your truck bed.


MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane Base

It is recommended that you use the crane with either a Class III or Class IV hitch to ensure that you do not exceed your hitch's maximum tongue weight capacity. That being said, this crane is designed to take up as little tongue weight as possible. The majority of the weight of your load is supported not by the hitch itself, but by the two integrated legs of the crane. These support legs sit beneath the hydraulic ram to provide a strong, sturdy base. Easily adjust the legs to match the height of your trailer hitch, and they will provide an excellent foundation for your application.


Easy Operation

MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane Operation

To work the crane, simply insert the included handle into the slot near the hydraulic ram. To raise the boom, just pump the handle. Once your load is at the intended height, manually pivot the upright post to move the item into your truck bed. Then slowly turn the release valve counterclockwise to drop the hydraulic pressure, thus lowering your load.



Three Boom Positions

MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane Boom Positions

Three different boom positions are available, ensuring proper leverage for any given load. Choose the position farthest out on the crane arm for wide or unwieldy cargo to make maneuvering it into your truck bed a snap. For heavier items, move the fulcrum point closer to the body of the crane. This change in leverage provides an increase in mechanical advantage to make hoisting heavy loads easy.


Simple, Compact Storage

MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane Breakdown and Storage

Storing the crane is simple. The entire thing breaks down for compact storage. Remove the boom by first dropping it to its lowest position. Then fold the boom up and lift it off of the base assembly. Remove the base from your hitch receiver and use the quick pins to release the legs. Fold the legs up, and use the integrated storage strap to tie everything together.

Video Transcript for Maxx Tow Hitch Crane Review

Today were going to review the Maxx Tow hitch mounted crane, part number MT07328. Now in this video were actually going to walk through the assembly process as well as how to use it since youll have to assemble it on the vehicle and disassemble it each time you dont need to use it. Well start with the T-connector that well insert into the receiver hitch on our truck and secure it with a pin and clip. Next well assemble the legs onto the base of the crane system. Well use the pins and clips to secure the legs into the welding on tabs on the sides of the base. As you assemble the legs you want to make sure that they are going to sit at the base and at the same height as the receiver tube of the hitch.

You want that main support arm to sit level. Well slide the base into our T-connector that weve already attached to our hitch and make sure that we line the main housing of the base up with the edge of our truck. With the base together well tighten down the two set bolts on the T-connector and use the nuts to lock them down. Now were ready to mount our main hoist assembly. Well remove the protective cover over the bearing and main post assembly and sit that into the base that we now have secured to the truck.

With the hoist system mounted we can go ahead and undo the strap around it. Then we can mount our handle into our jack and were ready to lift our load. There are three different weight settings that we can use on this hoist, 500 pounds, 750 pounds, and 1,000 pounds. The further were out on the hoist arm the lower the capacity is. to adjust the weight capacity simply remove the bolt and the chain, move it to your new boom position with the new weight capacity, re-insert your bolt and tighten it down.

Make sure that whatever load youre lifting you find a safe and secure way to secure it to the hook on the end of our hoist. At the base of the system is a hydraulic jack. Well use the handle to pump the jack and lift it up. When operating the crane its probably best to have two sets of hands. One to operate the jack and the other to manipulate and stabilize the load as youre maneuvering it.

You can also use the handle to loosen the release bolt to let pressure down and let the crane down. The Maxx Tow crane will also quickly and easily breakdown so you can get back on the road. Well remove the crane assembly from the pass, put the protective covering back over the bearing and support post and lay it in the bed of our truck. We can quickly and easily remove the legs from the base of the system by undoing the snapper pins. Then we can lay them in the bed. Now we can leave the base in the T-connector and secure it using the pin and clip, after we undo our adjustment bolts, or simply remove it and place it in the bed as well. Thats it for our review of the Maxx Tow hitch mounted crane, part number MT07328.

So, where to begin. I ordered the hitch mount crane to assist loads of 200 lbs. Plus. I paid and was informed that the item would be shipped that day. It was during the holidays so I expected it to arrive a week after it was ordered. It wasn't. I then called and found out it had not been shipped at all. Izzy then said she would get it out that day from the source. True to her word she did. 4 days later the package arrived. The next day I assembled the crane and when inserting the chain link into the receiver slot, I discovered it was not manufactured correctly. So I called and spoke to Suzanne. She asked me to send her pictures to show what was wrong. I did, she couldn't open them and emailed me back to ask for them again. So I sent her three emails so she could see the issue. She forwarded these to the manufacturer and sure enough they had assembled the arm upside down. So they said they would send another one and replace the original. I went to a local retailer, picked up 5 links of a rated chain with longer links, replaced the hook, and chain so that it would work, and called them to not send this 140 lb item again. All of their service people were solution oriented and helpful. We stopped the shipment and now we wait and watch what happens. 235355


Comments

It works fine. I load large tool boxes, generators and fuel tanks with ease. Assembly takes time, but lifting large heavy items make it one of my most valuable tools. Thanks for asking and following up.

This is a very nice receiver hitch mount crane. The finish was excellent and the instructions were clear enough to assemble the product with no questions. There was one major problem that prevents me from giving the product an excellent rating. The base assembly that fits into the "T" bar would not fit. It would jam up when inserted about halfway through. I tried from both sides of the "T"bar and also rotating the "T" bar 180 degrees in the receiver hitch. The problem was that the finished weld inside the "T" bar was too large and the base assembly was getting pinched on the weld. I contacted etrailer and sent a few pics of the problem. They responded very quickly and shipped me a new base assembly and "T" bar along with a RMA shipping label. I received the replacement in 2 days and was up and running within 10 minutes. I have not had a chance to use the crane yet but am certain it will work perfectly. Etrailer was GREAT to do business with, had a really good price and the shipping was fast and, to add to the deal, free (a BIG advantage with something as heavy as this item). I will forward pictures when I put it to use. 100010

Have not used it yet. It seems it will do the job I purchased it for. I need to get a generator weighing about 300lbs in a pickup with a cap on it. I will write a follow up review on this product after I use it. 201762


Comments

the MaxxTow hydraulic pickup truck hitch crane works great. Have used it about 8 times. Putting my 300lb generator in my pickup with low cap. I wish they made one with an electric hoist on it. Pumping the ram takes time. Great product. Etrailer is a great company. I have bought many items from them over the past couple of years.

Got it put together this morning. Everything fit and looks good. Looks strong. Welds look good. Boom moves around easily. I set it up on an incline as you can see in the photo, just to get a look at it. I promise I will not use it on an incline. If I use the 750 or 1000 lb section, I will probably need to take tailgate off, which is smart to do anyway (probably would never lift that much anyway unless I really had to). Will be able to use the 500lb hole for most of the stuff I have for home projects and camping, even the garden tiller. And should store easily in my truck tool box. I would much rather have one of these than one that mounts in the bed and screws up the bed liner. Im pleased. Neighbors will probably be walking over to take a look at it. Maybe somebody else on the street will want one. 115193

I ordered this on a Sunday and received it on Thursdays: very fast shipping for something that weighs so much. Box had come open, so I was worried that there might be something missing. Everything was accounted for, but I would recommend that the box have shipping strapping. One of the leg brackets on the base assembly was bent, but i was able to bend it back. This is the only reason why I ididn't give it 5 stars. Now to the review: great product, very sturdy well built and between the included instructions and the etrailer video, I had no problem assembling. Worked great! I had a large length of green oak (with a nice piece of burl) in my truck bed that I was able to easily take out of the bed and lower to the floor. I am sure that I will be using it for a lot of other things in the future. 336349

I just received my truck Bumper hitch crane, that I am excited to be able to remove & install my 5th wheel hitch know with ease. I am so glad that I found this product. It is very convenient & portable. It is able to be folded down & carried in the back of my truck and set up again in minutes . Thanks to etrailer.com & MaxxTow 223914


Comments

Dana, i want to use this hoist for the same purpose as you, I have a 250b sliding hitch that I need to remove from my truck after vacation season and I would appreciate your help. Im up there in age 72 and my strength is now less than it was so I have two questions:1. how did you connect the hitch to the hook on the hoist...did you use straps, chains, other?2. when using the hoist to lift the hitch back into the truck to reinstall the hitch was hoist capable of maneuvering into the hitch into the correct position or did you have to use muscle power to finally reposition the hitch after it was in the truck bed? Many thanks,

Excellent shipping time. Received the crane a few days ago. The package was falling apart and had to help the UPS guy get it off the truck. Inside, everything was wrapped up pretty well. One of the clevis on the base was bent, and bending it back out caused it to break off. I quickly welded it back in place. Easy to assembly and seemed pretty stout for the weight rating. I would comment that the reach of the boom is not as far as I would have liked. At 500 lb capacity it doesn't reach to the center of the tailgate on my F250. I feel like the 750lb and 1000lb capacties would be useless. All in all very happy for the price. I needed to move crated engines from my garage to the truck bed for shipping. I had tried another crane that needed to be mounted in the bed and I was unhappy with the modification required. This was the perfect solution. 416931

I purchased this crane to help me to load up my motorcycle for when I take it to the track. I don't always have able bodied people around to help me load and unload when using a ramp, and I've had the tires and my shoes slip and slide on the ramp surface. I'm trying to avoid the time and money it will take to repair myself or the bike if I end up dropping it. I set everything up for the first time last night and with a few adjustments to the lifting straps on the bike I was able to get the bike into the bed. With a few more adjustments I should have a quick and systematic way to load the bike. The fabrication of the crane came in good working condition and all the pieces fit together easily. There is a little bit of slop in the system from all the pinned connections but once the crane is loaded everything stays tight. 207059

Works like a charm. Assembly is easy. Though packing of the unit suffered a lot in transit but the lift survived shipping with no damage at all. It arrived just in time to hoist my 300 lb generator out of my truck. Lifted it with ease. Definetly worth the price. 217312

Works just fine. Very happy with it.

I like to camp with my wife. I load my Yeti cooler an the back of our camper for weight distribution, but when we get to the campground I want to put the cooler on the back of the truck so when we go to an adventure we have our cold drinks and food. My wife is petite, and the cooler at 200 plus pounds, well she is not much help in the lifting department. This will get the cooler off the back of the camper and lift it into the truck without having to dump all the cold ice and water. Also great lifting the generator too. 320050

You guys have a serious problem between the warehouse and final delivery. Ordered a 5er hitch last month and the base unit was lost, took an extra week to receive a replacement. On this crane shipment, the box was seriously compromised, most the staples were ripped open and the box was only held together by the shipping strap. I hope all the contents are there - will not be able to check until this weekend. Don't know if it's etrailer or UPS, but something is definitely wrong. 404116

Etrailer customer service guy was great to help me place the order. The item that we bought was very poor quality and we called to make a compaint. Etrailer pretended (it seemed) that this was the first time they heard of the problem. The problem was The Mast did not fit into the bore (the yellow part didn't fit into the black part) The bearing did not fit . This was definately due to poor welding. I had to machine out the bore to fit the bore to fit the welding. Lucky we had the ability to do this. We got no replies to the complaint, or pictures we were asked to send. No answers at the manufacturer website contact telephone in california. 101969


Comments

This is a new complaint to us. The unit we assembled and tested here for our video and photos fit perfectly. I will have someone from our Customer Service team contact you.

I've had this for a year and still can't rave enough about it. I used it last month to help my brother move a Plymouth 440 short block to his house, it worked great. I use it all the time for my vw motors. Save your back and buy one of these, they are very useful and worth every penny. They break down and don t take up much space in the garage. The quality is great and it works probably better than you might think. I give it a solid A! 401264

When I received your truck mounted hydraulic crane, to be honest, the hardest thing was to remove it from your shipping container. Please don't misconstrue this as being negative in nature. On the contrary, you have done a brilliant job in your efforts to protect the individual crane parts within during shipping !!! I found the crane to be very easy to put together and take apart after use. I was highly satisfied with its operation and use. In my opinion, it met or exceeded all my expectations. The only negative thing was the cheap bag that was included to protect the crane's main bearing; it ripped apart just after one use !!! 344063

Product is robust and well built. However, it misses one important criteria: it won't go low enough to work with most 3/4 ton (F150) pickups that have standard lift. If the bottom of your hitch receiver is less than 16" off the ground, the stand will be too high. This product is made in China and sold under several brand names. This issue has been reported for some of the other brands. There is a simple solution to the problem, but the buyer should not have adapt the product to his vehicle. The manufacturer should modify the stand design to accommodate a broader range of receiver heights. 400260

I purchased this crane to help lift a Yamaha 6300iSDe generator in and out of my truck. It was easy to assemble and install. I've only used it once so far but it seems to work well and I am able to lift the generator in and out of the truck by myself (for heavier loads I would recommend a second set of hands to help). It easily lifts the generator which weighs about 260lbs. The construction feels sturdy and I'm happy with the purchase. If you're looking for a way to move a generator or other heavy equipment in and out of your truck then this is the answer. I would recommend this product to others. 152101

Just got the crane yesterday. Box was damaged and one of the clips that is used on the leg assembly was bent pretty badly but overall the components were in good shape. Assembly took about 20 minutes or so, I did not need to make any height adjustments based on trailer hitch height which was nice. Hooked it up and cranked up my generator onto the tailgate of my F-350, was simple with no issues which is my intended primary use. Had to get the generator up to max height to get it onto my tailgate in the down position. So far so good, we'll see how it works when I'm not in my driveway and am up camping :) 240908

The tool was nicely packaged and there was no scrapes or dents. The product is built heavy duty and worked for my purpose. I like the fact of it being mobile with the truck and not permanently installed. I did not like the directions when I was putting it together though. I had to figure out that there was no oil in it and had to buy some at the auto store. Also, the snap ring, bearing, and cup was not assembled though. Luckily I have a mechanic buddy that let me barrow his very large snap ring plier to assemble those parts. Over all I like the tool and it was worth paying a little extra for. 134737

Order form was easy to navigate. Communication was immediate from etrailer. Thank you George J. The crane is well designed and manufactured. It easily lifted my chipper on and off my truck. I would recommend reviewing rigging procedures to insure safe operation and to avoid damage to your item or your truck. I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend it. Thank you etrailer. 329474

This little Jib Crane is exactly as advertised and a wonderful value for the price. I am getting to the age where lifting anything 100 lbs or more is difficult to impossible. I found that, with this crane, my tasks become much easier. Once assembled, I found setup and breakdown to take no more than 5 to 7 minutes. I simply position my F150 pickup in my work area, attach and set up the crane, and go about my task. The crane also stores compactly on some shelving in my garage when not in use. The folks a E Trailer were very helpful also. Finally, shipping was very quick. 415416

The hoist arrived just in time to move my heavy generator after the hurricane support for a friend's house. We set the hoist up on my F-150 needing only a couple assembly details reviewed. All the parts were provided & fit. After picking up the generater, we repeated the process to unload it. Will be looking for more opportunities to put it in use! 433224

Fast shipping and packaged pretty good for something that weighs 135 pounds. Assembly is easy and it works just as described. I bought it to get my 5th wheel hitch out oh the truck - the reach is limited so I still need to drag it back towards the tail gate to lift it out. It is solid and well made. The lift portion with the jack isn't exactly light but it is manageable. This is going to be a great help loading the generator and other heavy items into the truck. I picked up some lifting straps at [retailer] so I'm all set. 343277

The only reason I didn't give an Excellent on this is because I want to see how the crane holds up over time. I'm sure that if used properly, it will last a long time and then I can give it higher rating. I will be loading an unloading a generator into an F250. I want to see how it operates at a camp site instead of a shop floor. I will re-review at the end of the summer 2013. 84435

It was fairly easy to install into my receiver hitch. It picks up my 500 Lbs hit-n-miss engine with no problem. One thing you may look out for is if your not on very level ground the lift will try to swing toward the low side. Could be tough to keep it under control with a loaded lift. It is well build and will store away nicely in the broken down pieces when not in use. 279252

I received p/u crane yesterday. I was quite pleased product came in a sturdy box and was packaged properly and their were no missing components. I put it together this morning and it is very well made. I picked up my generator and put it in the bed of my pick up (2007 Tundra 4x4). So all I need to do is go camping and try it out in the rough. 403160

The Max Tow, lift does exactly what I purchased it for, lifting my fifth wheel hitch in and out of my truck. Built strong and tuff. 335211

It was easy to put together. Iike that I can take it down and stow it when not in use. I use it to move my 5th wheel hitch on and off the truck, as it is very heavy. I also use it to move tree trunks and some large rocks and move my generator. I have a very tall diesel pickup truck and it adjusts to the truck hitch with no problem. 241950

Recieve on time and packaging was awesome. I bought this to pull an engine and little bit of position, engine is out. Product did as expected!! Top bar could longer or have an internal adjustment bar to get a little more reach. Thank you and I am very happy with shipment, packaging and product. 391192

The product was delivered to my door in a more than reasonable time. It also was very much a 10 minute installation process , which is something hard to find nowadays. All in all I love the product and would recommend this to anyone who is looking to purchase a hoist for their trucks. 385137

Tried it as soon as I got it home and all worked as the advertisement said it would. Lifted a log about 500# on that setting and there was no problem at all. Very pleased that my many hours of internet research brought me to this crane. Delivery was fairly quick also. Thank you. 249061

Vince, the product went together with no problem, how ever the hydraulic jack malfunction and was not able to complete job. I did get in touch with Marsha and she was able to send me another hydraulic jack, however I have not needed to use the product at this time. 160394

I didn't expect the Maxtow truck lift to be perfect out of the box, i.e. boom too short which limits how far in I could set my load. However, the first time I place a load on the boom, the jack bottle leaked and has continued to do so with any load. What gives? 284716

Product works well, however they need to figure out a better method to ship as UPS delivered a torn up box with about 6 loose pieces scattered around. The box is not strong enough for such a heavy product. No piece arrived damaged though and nothing was lost. 412589
