Defence Hoists

Hoists for our Defence Force

Built for today’s modern army – Portalift is the exclusive hoist used by the Australian Defence Force.

Rugged enough for field deployment, dustproof and waterproof, Portalift has been used extensively throughout Australia by the Australian Defence Force since 1993, and is also now in use by the New Zealand Defence Force.

Portalift Hoists have full compliance to meet the (PMV) Bushmaster Specification and have been utilised in deployment applications in East Timor and Iraq.

Portalift mobile hoists offer an economical and flexible solution for defence force workshops, to manage servicing and maintenance requirements. Designed to exactive standards, Portalift offers a lifting system that is simple to operate and allows complete underbody access for fast and efficient turnaround for vehicle maintenance.


Portalift can be used inside or outside the workshop with no installation required. And because it is completely mobile, the system can be relocated to another worksite or new premises if required.

ADF spec hoists have been designed specifically for the lifting and maintenance of vehicles from PMV (Bushmaster) to Land Rover and an be tailor made and designed to suit the specific needs of different defence vehicles as part of ongoing maintenance and also vehicle build.


With simple one-man operation, Portalift’s lifting system can adjust the height of the vehicle for worker comfort and safety. Unrestricted underbody access gives quicker turnaround for increased productivity.
