Features and Benefits

Non-Conductive Handle

Fiberglass handle with polyester webbing provides added non-conductive material when using proper hot line handling techniques. Some models also available with hot stick ring on handle.

Easy Access Directional Lever

Improved directional lever makes it easier than ever to access, especially with a gloved hand. Hot stick compatible.

Lightweight and Rugged

These hoists are made with cast aluminum frames as well as corrosion-resistant stainless steel springs and frame shafts. Roller shafts are stainless steel plated. All rotating shafts are mounted on bronze bushings for reduced wear.

X Hooks and Gate Latches

All hooks swivel 360° and are equipped with latches. Optional hooks with gates can also be added.

Positive Load Holding & Easy Positioning

Double interlocking pawls assure one pawl is engaged at all times. Dual pawl springs provide unsurpassed reliability. Utilizing a double pawl system, this multiple pawl stops for precise load adjustment.

Safe and Open Design

Thumbscrews used to secure the handle are pegged and cannot be backed out. Competitive units use butterfly nuts which can cause the handle to come loose. The open design allows for easy inspection and cleaning.
