Overload Protection – This is standard on all hoists EXCEPT ECONOMY and is factory set. The overload is integral with the hoist and prevents the operator from overloading the hoist. When activated, the overload will not allow hoist operation. When the overload is activated, lower the load, if lifting, or release the load, if pulling. Then select a larger capacity hoist, or consult a lifting specialist for another means of operation.
Minimal Load Lifting Effort– These hoists require 20% – 35% less effort than the competition. Lift heavy loads with ease. Ideal for frequent lifting/pulling applications.
Fully Enclosed Gearing– This protects the gears from contamination and debris.
All Steel Construction– These hoists are strong, durable and rugged, providing a long and dependable service life.
Forged Alloy Steel Hooks Cast Steel Safety Latches – These hooks open when overloaded, thus providing the operator with a hook load reference point. Each heavy duty cast steel safety latches has a bolt and lock nut connection rather than roller pins used by most competitors. This feature facilitates changing latches in the field.
Weather Proof Load Holding Brake – Both hoists have a protected Weston Brake which holds the load during the entire operation. The hoists are also equipped with a unique twin pawl design.
All Gears and Shafts Run on Roller Bearings – This feature provides smooth controlled operation as well as maintenance free lubrication.
Stainless Steel Riveted ID Tags – These tags will not rust and will maintain clear distinct information for easy identification.
Safety Yellow Powder Coating – This process provides a long lasting finish in hostile environments.
Maintenance – Hoists can be quickly disassembled for fast and easy maintenance.
Certification – Each hoist is load tested and comes with a serial number and test certificate dedicated to each hoist. This provides complete traceability throughout the manufacturing process.
