Few tools are going to change the game for smaller pork or other livestock operations like the helping hand that comes from a Pork Lift.
This article intends to help you understand the importance of relying on machinery where applicable to run more efficient, and safer livestock operations in a day to day capacity. Our Pork Lift was originally envisioned as a helping hand for small sized crews in need of help lifting the dead weight of a sow that was immobile or an expired hog. The sturdy winch, exceptional design and strong build quality combine to make it possible to move significant weight safely without having a ton of extra “man power” on hand.
Below we will highlight some of the benefits of the ADA Enterprises Pork Lift 2000, an assistive technology that helps you move massive weight easily with secure load straps and a powerful winch, combined with a strong welded frame that is engineered to easily move expired pigs.
Changing the game when handling animals in your livestock operation – The Dura Bilt Pork Lift
The concept of a Pork Lift is not new. There has been assistive technology on the ranch for decades. But in the Pork Lift by ADA Enterprises, you’re getting a time-tested, real-world proven, and exceptionally well-built product that is specifically developed to cater to the size, shape and characteristics of livestock and the things you’re routinely using in the livestock operation. All this means that when the time comes, you have both a specifically designed tool to move dead weight, but also a versatile helping hand for improving morale in small crews, and assisting with other tasks that usually require additional muscle.
The design incorporates a winch that is built for static weight loads, and to help easily position an animal for safe transport – both for the animal where applicable, but also for the handlers. Multiple connectivity points and a strategic design of the steel cabling means that a bit of ingenuity and planning goes a long way towards reducing worker’s compensation concerns or tweaked backs, hurt shoulders, and accidents when handling heavy loads.
While no tool is a guarantee to avoid liability, or improve safety across the board, and none can eliminate the possibility for injury of an animal or a staff member completely, assistive technologies are generally a boon for the livestock sector. You can offload the heavy lifting to the machinery instead of trying to defeat dead weight with 1:1 muscle from manpower.
An important note: While using this tool, please prioritize common sense, staging, wheel blocks, and other safety implementations, and try to focus on the center of gravity for the unit to maximize safety and capabilities with the tool. There is no replacement for good planning. And, while the Pork Lift is a huge help, the brainpower behind the operation is the best tool in the equation.

Some other ways the Pork Lift can help you optimize work in any livestock handling operation
Efficiently handling livestock is an important part to the overall operations of any livestock operation, but the Pork Lift is not a one trick pony.
For smaller operations, the Dura Bilt Pork Lift can be an extremely valuable helping hand. And not just for moving animals. But for feeding regimens, or for moving large loads that need to be moved along with a mobile staff member. The ability to take potential strain or injury off the table means you’re going to get immediate ROI for your small livestock operation. This is particularly true for solo operators, homesteads, and small group operations. The Pork Lift can help carry heavy loads, 55 gallon drums and other feed or operational loads throughout most environments on the ranch.
Additionally, the ability to help assist with “dead weight” operations means that even where super heavy loads would ordinarily not be able to be attempted with a group of 2 or 3, such needs can be met with proper rigging and planning. This means you don’t have to wait for friends to come assist, or for hired help to arrive.
Importantly, the versatility of the unit means that you can constantly have mobile tooling and winch support for any need, in the field, next to the tractor or for actually moving livestock that have expired or are otherwise immobile.
The point of all this explanation: the Dura Bilt Pork Lift is a versatile and important tool to have around, and because it’s built to move and it’s built to last, it will generally always be around when you need it. And you’ll be finding ways to put it to good use. Having such an easy to own and reliable partner in any ranching or livestock operation will put you in good stead to realize an important and valuable return on your investment.
A final note about the Pork Lift: We’ve iterated on feedback, design improvements and real-world usage information to refine this product over time.

The Dura Bilt Pork Lift 2000 is the culmination of a beefed up, refined, but still workhorse piece of machinery that is designed to meet the heavy demands of life on the farm. It’s an achievement we are proud of and a piece of tooling that tells a story about how we run our business, and how our clients rely on us to help them run theirs. And that’s a story we love.
If you need a helping hand, and want to be able to leverage strong build quality, excellent reputation, and remove some of the safety concerns around your livestock operation, the Pork Lift is a great place to look for that solution.
