Fixing a Hills Hoist

Has anyone ever repaired an old galvanised hills hoist clothes line?

This one sits about 150mm from the bottom of its travel. The winding handle goes around freely without engaging.

Is it worth checking with Hills industries to repair it?

Regards

Gladstone,

Probably cheaper to replace.

You could try taking apart the winding mechanism and replacing it with one from another old hills that's in a recycling depot....

Cheers,

If you check out the hills website, they show diagramed pics of the insides of hills hoists and have all the parts coded for if you need to order parts.

The people at Hills were a great help via email with part numbers and local service agents.

Thankyou all again

So the message to anybody in the same situation should be "Head for the Hills".
