Single and Multi-Line Drum Hoists

Our standard drum hoist design is versatile enough to handle almost all applications, robust enough to last decades and is simple to operate.

Lift Capacity

A maximum lifting capacity of 550 to 4,600lbs and maximum travel is manufactured per application


Manufactured per application


  • A four-element rotary limit switch, fused disconnect and reversing starter.
  • Worm gear drives with high ratios. These provide inherent safety beacuse they do not allow back-driving.
  • Easy to use and maintain. Requires no special training or skills.

Custom Chandelier Hoist


Remote Mounting Location

Hoist is built for installation directly above what it is lifting. Ask us about cable discharge modifications paired with appropriate blocks (pulleys) to mount in a remote location.

Secondary Brakes

Choose either a centrifugal or a spring set secondary brake placed at the drum(s) to stop drum rotation either as a back-up to tthe brake mounted to the motor or to engage from centrigugal force caused by drum speed increase that would occur in the event of a drive component failure.

Travel Speed

Travel speed can be customized for the application based on drive system and drum size.


Add wireless control, control pendants, or multiple hard-wired control locations.

Cable Reels

Spring-loaded cable reels can be added to provide cable management of power and contols cables for what it is that you are lifting. This allows the fixture to be powered and controlled at all elevatons.

Cable Weights

These are shipped loose (one per lift line) as an installation aid to be sure that lift cable remains taut until item to be lifted is attached.

Application Engineering

We can provide complete system install layouts showing the hoist and any cable reels or blocks mounted to steel that is already in place or that would need to be added.

Installation & Start-Up

Hire us to oversee a local crew (by you or by us) to install the hoists and related components.
