Yes I know this is a first world problem but we are getting old and finding lifting the pool cleaner robot out of the pool a bit of a challenge! It’s about 50kg and only need to lift it about 1400 and swing round to the edge of the pool.


Doesn’t appear to be anything on the market.


Looking at maybe a small electric winch but they are mostly big brutes for the front of vehicles.


Any suggestions?!

Use the term "Hoist" in your searches.


How are you going to mount the hoist / winch?

Thanks and good thinking about hoist and should have mentioned that it needs to be 12VDC too.


No idea yet how will mount but will sort that after get a hoist organised.
