Air hoists provide advantages over electric models
such as infinitely variable speed control, higher duty
cycles, smaller size, and inherent explosion proof*
design. Disadvantages are louder operation and larger
hoists require a substantial volume of air from a large
compressor to operate.
Air hoists can be equipped with two different control
types. Pendants provide more precise load control
where pull cords provide lower initial investment. Still
not sure how to select the right hoist? Call today to speak with one of our hoist experts.
*The term "explosion proof" applies to electrical components only and does not include mechanical
spark resistance features (available as options).
