Electric Hoists

Our aim is to supply a hoist that will last a good working life, not a hoist that was imported from a unknown manufacturer, we only supply hoists that we are official approved dealers for. All of our electric chain hoists are tested and certified before being despatched.

We are approved suppliers for the following manufacturers:

My personal favourite brand is Stahl Electric Chain Hoists, they never let me down, short lead times and competitive prices, this German manufacturer knows quality.

For specialist applications, heavy duty use and great for production lines, i fully stand behind Demag chain hoists.

Need a brand you can trust? Need spares on demand? For this we recommend Yale electric chain hoists or Lodestar electric chain hoists, both manufactured by huge American company; Columbus McKinnon.

If you are an Italian Stallion and require a competitively priced hoist that will provide long lasting service and quality, Donati electric chain hoists are the one.

Choosing a hoist can be like choosing a car, firstly the brand, then to decide on the specification and optional extra’s, for more information and help on purchasing an electric chain hoist, contact Lifting Equipment Store.

Electric Chain Hoists and Stage Rigging

Safety should never ever be compromised when it comes to lifting, but when it comes to lifting in areas where the load is positioned over members of the public’s heads then safety is a majorly high priority. Lifting regulations state that hoists must be rated to perform lifts above people to ensure the loads could not fall and cause the un-thinkable. These hoists maybe far from cheap but what really are you getting for your money? Probably not a Imagelot more than a few modifications to the slipping clutch etc. and re-assurance to the mind, this can be in some peoples eyes a waste of money, but without using the correct hoist you are breaking the law and if the load/ hoist lands on someones head then the responsibility lands on yours, and this is never something you want to deal with.

The Verlinde Stagemaker inverted (upside down) hoists where the motor is hooked to the load and the hoist climbs the load chain in order to reach its highest point, this hoist is said to be a great piece of kit and it can be controlled in a number of ways such as direct control or low voltage control using external control units or via low voltage pendant controls sometimes referred to as a pickle.

All in all if you are operating loads over heads of people then the correct equipment should be used, you should never take the risk of using equipment that is not rated for the purpose of application. To find out more on electric chain hoists visit Lifting Equipment Store.
