Can anyone recognize this lifting Magnet

This magnet is cool, and fun, but I do not know how much it can lift.
It weighs about 130 lbs, so I figure, it would be rated at 2,500 lbs,
but that's only a guess and knowing who made it would make a
difference.
The lifting eye on it is Crosby-Laughlin.

That is an ACME Liftall 9000 magnet. I saw it featured in episode 9 of the Roadrunner / Wile E. Coyote show. Steve

I've been all through "The ORIGINAL Illustrated Catalog Of ACME Products",

, and didn't see such a magnet anywhere in it. Must have been episode 9 of some other series, maybe Superman, and not an ACME product at all. -jiw

I don't think so, but perhaps mechanical sizes might give a rating.
There is a label on the side of yours - what is it ? a bar code ??

Yes, I think that mine matches their 10" version. Both by size and weight.
