Yes, a less expensive import may be rated (on paper) as having the same capacity as a Ruger, but compare the weights of a typical crane:

Import 4000 lb. rated = 234 lbs.
Ruger 4000 lb. rated = 645 lbs.

More weight means more durability and longer life under tough conditions. You can see and feel the difference.
