We furnish and install the following types of hoists:

  • Manual Chain Hoists

    Manual hoists are lightweight and portable, and ideal for use in tight spaces.

    • Hand Chain Hoists
      These compact hoists are ideal for facilities that require that parts be positioned accurately yet infrequently.
    • Lever Hoists
      This type of manual chain hoist is operated with a chain-type lever that helps the user pull, lift or lower heavy objects with relatively little effort.
  • Electric Chain Hoists

    Electric chain hoists are available in small capacity to heavy-duty models. Standard models can be customized with optional features to meet your specific requirements.

  • Air Chain Hoists

    Rugged air chain hoists provide exceptional lifting speeds. Air power gives users the ability to exactly position heavy loads.

  • Electric Wire Rope Hoists

    Available in many capacities and lifts, strong electric wire rope hoists are ideal in hazardous, spark-resistant and most other industrial applications.

  • Air Wire Rope Hoists

    Strong hoists allow you to lift and position almost any load — even in spark-resistant and hazardous environments. Regardless of your industry, required capacity or application, there is an air wire rope hoist to suit your needs.
