Yes, I recommend this product.

When fully extended they have a slight tendency to twist which gave us a little concern. When not extended, they are super solid.
Fully extended, I felt comfortable on them. I weigh just under 200 pounds, and they felt plenty firm.
Product FeaturesEasy to use, High Quality, Durable/Performs well

I need to hoist 40lbs bags of pillets from basement to second floor

A block and tackle would be the cheapest option.. basically a simple pulley that gives you a mechanical advantage. Usually found for under $75. Motors are typically slow (both rolling and unrolling) and might be a bit overkill for a 40 pound load.

In the old days, a barn had a simple pulley crane system for hay bales. Same principle. But you do need a place to hang the pulley from. Some systems have an automatic brake in them which could be helpful as a safety device.
