Electrical Wire Rope Hoists are suited to work with a variety of different crane options, including Top-Riding and Under-Running Bridge Cranes and Monorail systems. The hoist operates using an electric motor to hoist loads and is typically used on applications that are lifting 5 Ton and higher.
Chain Hoists operate by pulling the chain through a feeding mechanism and depositing the excess chain into a container attached to the hoist. These hoists are typically used for capacities up to 3 Ton and require less ongoing maintenance than the wire rope variety. These hoists can either be manual or electric.
