Hoists. The muscle of your lifting system
Hoists are the workhorses of lifting systems and are an integral part of the system. Selecting the right hoist for you lifting needs is crucial to the success of your lifting system and has a lot of factors to consider to ensure satisfaction with the lifting system.
The guiding principle behind everything we design and sell is operator safety.

We also embrace the drive for productivity – our range of reliable air and electric chain hoists are proven to increase workplace efficiency and performance. Safe and efficient is our goal.
Hoists: Hoists are primarily used to move a load or product. Any device used for lifting or lowering a load by means of a drum or lift-wheel around which rope or chain wraps is considered a hoist. It may be manually operated, electrically or pneumatically driven and may use chain, fibre or wire rope as its lifting medium. The best are silent running, minimal vibration and durable but you need to consider your load and function when selecting a hoist. Size may be your biggest consideration if the hoist is moved to various job sites or space is tight. Lift capacity is usually the primary concern but have you considered manual versus electric operation? These are all important considerations when selecting a hoist for your operation. Duty cycle is another consideration.
We partner with many hoist providers and look for the best one to suit your needs. Kito, Gorbel, Demag, and EMH all manufacture hoists of varying strengths and sizes. We’ll help you select one that best matches your application.
