Construction and Operation

Hotstick operations – Select hoist with handling ring on the handle.
Convertible ratings feature – Either style can adapt immediately to varying field needs.

When rigged at the lower rating, either size hoist adds 3 feet of lift-distance capability, as listed in the Specifications below.

To rig either style hoist for its higher rating, keep the loadhook sheave mounted midway on the strap when it is becketed (i.e., doubled, with the end of the strap secured to the hoist frame).

To convert to the lower rating, simply secure the load hook sheave through the loop in the strap free end.
