The 220 by Holmes is your answer for a rugged light-duty fully hydraulic unit designed to be easily installed in the bed of a 3/4- or 1-ton pickup truck. The unit is operated by a 12-volt electric/hydraulic pump system that connects to your vehicle's power supply.

All functions of folding, unfolding, extending, retracting, raising, lowering and operating the wheel claws can be done from the inside of your truck cab using the remote. The 220 is ideal for moving vehicles around lots, repossession and light duty towing with a lift rating of 3,500 lb.  Actual towing limitations will vary depending on your truck, and optional counter-weight and spring kits may be required. If you are looking for a bolt-in unit that you can rely on, check out the Snatcher by Holmes at your local Miller distributor.

Chassis Recommendations

The Holmes 220 is designed to be installed on a pickup truck chassis with an 8’ bed only. With 1,400 lb of weight in the rear, the truck bed should not sit higher than 37 1/2” from the ground.  The minimum recommended GVW is 8,600 lb and a helper spring package is recommended in the rear.  Never exceed the chassis maximum GVW rating during towing.
