Innovative Design

  • Flexibility of multiple load ratings from one hoist – labeled 750/1000/1500 lb. rated with 90/100/110 PSI at max. 70 cfm
  • Load controlled by PSI – no need to open hoist to reset load capacity
  • Quiet operation – only 92 dB compared to industry standard of 110 dB
  • Air power pack removable (1-screw) to switch air hoist to electric for fleet flexibility
  • Filter Lubricator Assembly included with hoist and can be mounted either to the hoist or to a work cage or swing stage

  • Simplified ergonomics – easier handle operation, more comfortable control descent
  • Compact, ergonomic design to survive transportation and delivery better
  • Filter Lubricator Assembly features more robust connection to mounting plate to reduce breakage
  • Air brake lines are rubber, more robust & flexible
  • IP65 Rated Enclosed Brake
  • Protective coating on internal motor & brake components to protect against rust
  • Remote ready – accepts 9-61, 8-0399 and 701303 remotes
  • Dual wire rope optional – bolt-in installation for aftermarket hoists
