General Features to consider When Selecting an Electric Chain Hoist and/or Trolley for your Application


Power Supply

Is there a suitable electrical power supply to the hoist location?

standard power supplies held in our UK Stock; 400v 3Ph 50HZ, 230v 1Ph 50HZ and 110v 1Ph 50Hz


Hoist Capacity, Swl or Maximum load to be lifted

With the Hoist and Winch range of electric chain hoists offering lifting capacities from 125 kg through to 25 t swl we are certain we have a suitable product for your application. The safe working load (Swl) of a hoist unit is a fundamental specification requirement, and although a hoist unit is designed to lift to its maximum Swl, as with all good practices we would suggest selecting the next size hoist up if the application allows to increase the service life of your new chain hoist.


Lifting Height

This is determined from the position where the hoist unit is installed to ground level (Load pick up). As with all good practices the load hook should reach the floor for when service and maintenance work is carried out by a suitably trained component person.


Fixed Position Suspension Or Trolley 

Does the application call for a stationary fixed position lift or travel along a monorail beam?

For fixed suspension we can offer; Lug mounted, top hook suspension or foot mounted

Regarding monorail travel along an universal beam we can offer manual push/pull trolley, hand geared trolley or electric powered trolley.

Our Sales team will always request the beam width, but usually this information can follow if the enquiry proceeds to order placement.


Other Points to Consider

Is single speed or two speed operation required.

What hoist operating speeds does the process require.

What is the application, as this will determine what hoist motor duty is required. 

Environment; is the equipment required to be used indoor, outdoor, offshore or explosion risk ATEX environment

Is a chain container required for hoist load chain

Planned maintenance, ease of working on the equipment.

Would PTC Thermistors be required for the hoist motor.

Radio Remote control rather than fixed hard wired pendant.
