Can I buy from Tie Down Engineering/RoofZone/TranzSporter or get pricing?

No, we only sell through our distributor network. Please contact your local supplier for purchasing or pricing.

Is there oil in the engine?

The Lifan engine has the GEAR prefilled, do not add (already preloaded with 2.5 oz of oil). The crank case case is empty, fill with 20 oz or .6L of 10W-30. The Honda engine is different, there is NO oil in either gear of crank case. Refer to manual with engine for further info.

What oil should I use?

10w30, both gear and crank case: Honda and Lifan.

How high can the hoist go?

43 or 44ft depending on hoist. Max of five 8ft tracks, units come with 3, so they can only add 2 more. 60005 telescopic support brace for over 28ft required. Hoists come equipped with enough cable to go up to the Max height. The TP series will go to 44 ft max.

What model of hoist do I have so I can look for the parts diagram online?

On the older models, there are no markings on the carriage or base, the parts diagram cover pages have images that you can match to your unit. Starting in 2014 the base of the hoist should have a date label and serial number. The model number should be on the label.

Cable Drum Replacement?

In 2008 we went to a “Quick Change” drum on the LH2000, LH200 and the LH400. The side of the base sections have a bright yellow sticker identifying the “Quick Change” drum. The quick change drum for the LH200/2000 (48493X) is 14.53 inches wide, the old drum is 15.875 inches (48508X). The TP250 and TP400 uses the quick change drum.

Electric Hoist voltage/wattage?

The electric 1hp Leeson uses 110 v: 12.8 amps, 240 watts 150 min.

Brake needed when using the foot pedal?

The platform Hoist brake is automatically activated, do not use the brake handle while pressing on the foot pedal. Please consult the Platform Hoist manual for instructions on proper use.

What hoist does the #60005 Support Brace work with?

The 60005 support brace may be used on all TranzSporter platform hoists (LH and TP series). The max height is 43 or 44ft, when using extra tracks over 28ft, one 60005 is required.

How can I tell what replacement track I need?

The TP250 and TP400 use track part number 10091. Previous LH series 200 lb models used the same 10091, however the 400 pound “LH” series used a wider track.

I need a new Carriage.

The collapsible carriage started shipping January 2012, these will not work with the older style carriage (48480). The Collapsible Base and Carriage are not compatible with the previous version. Do not mix the carriages and bases! The 48480 must be used on 62001, 62000 and 48490. The New TP250 carriage and base are compatible with the collapsible carriage models.

Lifan Warranty?

For warranty, call 866-471- 7464. The customer will be prompted to press #1 for warranty. They will need the Serial Number before they can get anything serviced or replaced.

What is the difference between the TP250/400 and previous models?

The TP series uses the same track sections as the previous versions of the LH200/2000 (#10091). However there is no compatibility between the LH400/4000 and the new TP400. The TP250 components are interchangeable with the 2 nd generation TranzSporter LH200 and LH2000 collapsible carriage version. The original solid carriage (welded frame) hoist is not compatible with all later models.

Will my old transporter work with a new track section?

Yes, the track sections have never been revised in the set up and is interchangeable with both newer and older models of that hoist. LH200/2000 use a different track than the LH400 For dimensional differences see above. The TP 250 and TP400 now use the same track section (10091).
