This wooden model is a modular one, meaning that it can be joined with other Marble Run Chain Hoists – two or four models can be hooked up (in pairs). Special connectors (included in the package) are used for this transformation. Two Marble Run Chain Hoists are attached together frontally. Alternatively, four of them can be joined together together (both frontally and laterally), resulting in a fun system of runs and hoists.

The model features a hand crank-powered chain hoist, as well as a number of tracks, each boasting its fun and unique element or obstacle. The machine is put in motion by turning the handle clockwise. After that the wooden chain hoist picks the marbles and lifts them to the top of the device. Up there they are put on different tracks with the help of a 3-way switch. One marble is dropped down a chute featuring a loop-the-loop at the bottom. The next one ventures down several mind-boggling cascades. Three other marbles get collected in the accumulator, only to be directed along one of 3 shorter tracks. All of the marbles pass through the collector (common tray) before coming back to the chain hoist and embarking on their next journey.
