TCR250M Manipulator Control Air Hoist

The master manipulator.

Imagine a TCR hoist, but with a one-handed operation.  That's what the TCR250M offers - all the features of a TCR plus the manipulator control, providing fine feathering control with just one hand. This hoist can operate for long periods of time while delivering smooth starts and stops, and presicion placement for those tougher applications. 

Manipulator Control

The ergonomic, in-line handgrip control allows for single-handed operation, which gives the operator a free hand to safely guide and position the load.

Ergonomic In-Line Hand-grip and push buttons

Easy-Touch buttons for fine feathering control. Push pressure determines speed of lift and lowering of the load. Simply grab the handle while pressing on one of the adjacent buttons with your thumb.


The TCR air hoist is built for long and demanding work shifts. With its unlimited duty cycle, you can continually operate the hoist without worrying about damage from too many starts per hour.


Protect the hoist and operator while avoiding downtime. The TCR’s adjustable, built-in load limiter is pre-set to stop lifting when the load capacity is over-rated, which keeps your job site safer.

Six foot lift

With a 1/4 tonne capacity this hoist has a standard lift of 6 feet.
