Beta Max Hoist is a sponsor of the Spec Mix Bricklayer 500 this year.

We will be at all the regional and national events, cheering on the masons and tenders, and doing product demos.  Here is a promo for the nationals event in Vegas.




Block and mortar inherently come with several built in obstacles that every contractor must contend with. Block and mortar are heavy, physical delivery of these materials means increased risk of physical injury and pulley systems can risky to operate. A Beta Max hoist is designed to alleviate the burden of down time due to labor exhaustion.
  • Delivery of block and mortar at a higher rate of speed.
  • Increased efficiency and safety by eliminating a pulley system.
  • Carrying accessories designed for lifting typical masonry materials.

Beta Max offers portable material hoist models for every project.

The safest way to move 200 to 2000 lbs. of materials to virtually any job level (up to 400 feet in one run).  

Safety Features

  • Up limit switch stops the hoist instantly when load reaches the top.
  • Non-rotating wire rope keeps the loads from spinning.
  • Failsafe brake, all loads are powered up and down, no free-falling even in the event of a power loss.
  • Rugged & dependable electrical controller with overload sensing device to protect your hoist from damage.
  • Twist lock power connections prevent the power cords from being accidentally kicked or knocked loose.
