WIRE ROPE HOISTS
SEMI-LOW HEADROOM HOISTS (ED MODELS 2-3 TON)

semi-low headroom hoists
Our Ultra-Low Headroom Series Hoists
provide Headroom that is unmatched in the
industry. When price is more of a concern
than Headroom or when curves need to
be negotiated, our Semi-Low Headroom
Series Hoists generally make a better
choice. Hoists from both series can be
purchased with Motorized or Plain Trolleys.
Our Semi-Low series is more versatile and
can also be bought Less Trolleys in a Lug
Mount configuration.

HOIST WORM GEARING
HOIST WORM GEAR 3D MODEL
We use Worm Gear Drives on all its Wire Rope Hoists, Drive Tractors and Bridge Crane End Trucks as standard.
Worm Gear Drives are rugged and reliable and offer smooth and quiet operation.

Due to their inherent friction, Worm Gear Drives also act very similar to brakes by retarding motion. For that reason,
brakes are generally NOT required on all our Worm Gear Trolleys, Drive Tractors or End Trucks. Heavy capacity,
high momentum systems operating without VFD controls are sometimes the exception. In these cases, the trolley or
crane may roll more than the acceptable limit without a brake.

For High-Ratio Worm Gear Hoists, there are some major advantages over other hoists.

• High-Ratio Worm Gears safely control the lifting load without the need for a Mechanical Load Brake.
• High-Ratio Worm Gears are inherently Self-Locking thus these hoists are very capable of acting as 2nd
   stopping brake and also holding up a load.
• Worm Gear Hoists have very Low Maintenance as fewer moving parts lead to fewer repairs
• High-Ratio Worm Gear Hoists Conform to CMAA, ASME and OSHA guidelines

Custom Control Panels
Panel With VFD Hoist and Trolley Controls
controls with radio
We offer various Control Packages for all our Hoist and
Crane Equipment. Whether it is Standard or Custom, we
can build the control panel of your choice.

(VFD) Control Packages are slowly becoming very popular
and are almost standard on all new equipment these days.
The benefits of (VFD) Controls by far outweigh its initial
costs. (VFD) Controls allow the operator to precisely and
safely control the load. Acceleration and deceleration rates
and 2-speed control limits are all set to best support the
given application. Any wear induced on mechanical parts
over time when using (VFD) Controls is much less.

Custom Controls With Radio
Please see our photos for further reference on our control panels.

Optional Feature: Component Parts - Overload Limit Switch

We offer an Overload Limit Switch that is mounted
underneath one of our trolleys as an OPTION. This
Overload Limit Switch can be purchased with a
NEW hoist or for an EXISTING hoist and installed
in the field with minimal effort. This switch is adjusted
within 5% and there is no loss of headroom.

Machines are designed in accordance with our interpretation of the specifications of
the National Electric Code, Underwriters Laboratory and Factory Mutual but are
NOT tested by them, nor do they carry their label as a whole. However, most of the
Individual Electrical Components do carry an Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Label.

Please NOTE; the full responsibility for determining the existence and severity of a
hazard in a specific area rests with the (Authority) responsible for enforcing that code.

Additional NOTES:

• Machines are available for Class I (Vapors): Groups C & D and Class II
   (Dusts): Group E, F & G (As Division 1 or 2)
• We use TENV motors as standard on all Division 2 applications (With
   Contained Hazard) as permitted by NEC code.
• Any requirements for Spark Resistant Features in severe hazardous    environments lies with the (Authority)
• Spark Resistant Features generally include Stainless Steel Wire Rope,    Bronze Trolley Wheels and Bronze Hook and/or Complete Block.

Optional Feature: Custom Hoists - Hoist and Tractor Combinations
rope guide hoist with tractor drive For superior trolley performance utilize a Hoist & Tractor
Combination.

The consistently POSITIVE action of a drive tractor will
generally out-perform a standard motorized trolley in many
monorail applications.

By combining a drive tractor with your hoist, you will better
negotiate curves, ride up inclines and will eliminate nuisance
slipping in many severe working environments.

Furthermore, the inherent beam tension of a drive tractor
can also serve to RESIST motion in certain applications
particularly when load swing or side-pull present motion
issues.
