Working on site and trying to move around heavy materials can be no only exhausting but also inefficient in todays world. Manual labour is almost a thing of the past these days, as technology develops life gets easier, with Electric Chain Hoists there is no longer a reason to be manually lifting loads or using unsafe gin wheels to transport your bag of cement or your steel girder to the 13th story of a building site.
Boosting efficiency to the maximum, Electric Chain Hoists can be specified to have a slow and a fast speed to ensure the operator can maintain a safe but efficient speed for the load, my favourite thing about this kind of hoist is that it is self braked, as soon as you let go of the button (and even in the event of a power failure), the hoist will automatically brake and the load will remain in position. This is great for working onsite as power shortages often occur, especially in remote areas where generators are being used to power equipment. Expect hoist speeds to be in the region between 1m/min and 12m/min, there are faster hoists available on the market but they tend to come with a higher price tag and are usually price on request from dealers.
In regards to dealers and where to purchase an Electric Chain Hoist, the best way is to contact a dealer, as manufacturers rarely deal direct- the advantages to this are better customer service and better prices as dealers often pass on some of their trade discount to be competitive against others, talk to the right one nicely and you can grab yourself a bargain. Alternatively there are many dealers now selling these types of hoists online such as Lifting Equipment Store.
Electric Chain Hoists alike a standard chain block, come in a variety of lifting capacities from 125kg-30,000kg and can be built to include a top hook, suspension lug, manual or electric beam trolley to enable horizontal traverse along a beam. With lifting heights up to 120m you are sure to have enough ability to do what you need to do!
