Lincoln Hoist

Lincoln Hoist is a new name for an old company making hoists sold under the LUG-ALL® brand.


Lincoln Hoist is a new name in town, but since 1949 Lincoln Precision Machining Company (a family owned business) has been designing and manufacturing hoists sold under the LUG-ALL® brand. In that time, they have learned a thing or two about building hoists.

Lincoln Hoist’s affiliation with the LUG-ALL® Corporation has now ended. They are committed to building a new kind of hoist company, combining their historic level of quality with superior delivery and customer service. Their hoists continue to be made with the techniques and craftsmanship that they have developed over 60 years. They build the hoists that we would want to use, build them with care and pride in the USA.
