manual forklift?

Saw it on TV, its on wheels with two forks and operated with a crank and rope telescoping system much like a drywall lift. You could push this thing around and could lift from the ground level to about 10' high much like a drywall lift but perfect for heavy beams. What is this thing called and is it on the web for sale?

I have a device called a Genie lift that does this, but it doesn't have ropes, it has cables.
