An electric hoist may seem a daunting item to order, but we make it easy. We show electric in single and three phase arrangements - to match the power supplied at your plant. Where ever possible, we suggest three phase, as there is much less current drawn than single phase, allowing the motor to run cooler and last longer. Single phase is available for electric hoists, but capacity is limited. We offer constant speed as well as dual speed for your convenience.
Once you have decided on what you need - be it electric or hand chain type your next step is deciding on the trolley. This is an exceptionally simple step, as we will not let you order a trolley that is not compatible with your order. Electric hoists offer trolleys that are either push type of powered. For high volume application, powered trolleys may well be worth the few thousand dollars they add to the price of a hoist.
The next piece of equipment you may need is the gantry or jib crane. A hoist needs to be mounted to something. Not to worry, A Plus Warehouse sells Gantry and Jib cranes and has been doing so as long as we have been selling material handling equipment. A Jib crane is a fixed device that has a pillar with an Ibeam that rotated about the pillar. Simply mount the trolley and hoist onto the Ibeam, add an end clamp, and you are ready to lift. A Gantry crane has an Ibeam between two uprights on casters. With a Gantry, you can move your load, or move the gantry to where the load is to pick it up.
The final consideration is under the hook devices. The hook rarely does the picking up - when it does; you may be handling your equipment incorrectly. Accessories included in this category include Slings - nylon and metal, Spreaders, Pallet Lifters, Coil Lifters, Sheet lifters, C Hooks, Lifting Tongs, and vacuum lifts. We are a dealer for Caldwell, the best domestic manufacturer of under the hook lifting devices.
When ordering equipment, it is very probable you need other material handling equipment. After all, when you lower your deluxe widget to the ground it usually needs to be taken somewhere. A Plus Warehouse does a great job with platform carts and industrial trucks of all types. From 500 pounds on up to multiple tons , we provide the industrial cart that will handle your job. Perhaps you need a hand truck, pallet truck or conveyor system - all these are used in conjunction with lifting equipment
