Yeah, in that case the sand might not be the best thing to tumble
it in. ;-)

The chain on this is a roller drive-type chain. Think
bicycle or motorcycle - but _big_. It is only slightly
rusty. At one end of the chain I use ATF and some movement
and got the chain flexing well. My objective is to get oil
into the joints so they will move - probably will require
some elbow grease.
I have disassembled, cleaned, and lubricated the drive unit
and the block. Once the chain is flexing well it should be
fully operational. I don't know what I'm going to do with
the monster then.
It's a Yale PC series roller chain lever hoist. The roller
chain is not very flexible side-to-side, but super strong and
long lasting. Though it's rated for 6000 lb [2700 kg], it
sure looks like it could lift triple that.
The pictures are crummy, but kinda mine looks kinda like this listing.
