These discussions included advice being given by Hoist & Winch Ltd on the control of hoist units by remote radio control versus 2 off wall mounted fixed position pendants, hoist electrical power supply feed options, and checks on headroom clearances to ensure adequate clearance being provided for the required big bag lifting application.
