JDN air hoistJDN is one of the manufacturers we work with to supply our customers with high quality air hoist products. Its range includes several different models that provide varied capacities, features and functions.
The JDN M Series air hoist line up is a specialised example that offers impressive performance in underground lifting scenarios, as well as in more general commercial settings. WLLs top out at 6 tonnes and it can achieve this with a limited amount of pressure maintained to limit air consumption and improve efficiency.
The JDN Mini Air Hoist is a surprisingly compact and powerful option, boasting a capacity of up to 980kg and delivering lifting heights of 8 metres. Its modest size means that it can work in areas where space is restricted, while its control scheme makes it possible to achieve one handed operation without compromising on safety.
Red Rooster air hoistAnother of the mainstream air hoist brands we work with is Red Rooster, which offers products that are suited to light, mid and heavy duty lifting tasks.
The TCR-1000 air hoist is a good example of what it offers. It uses a single chain fall to achieve a capacity of 1 tonne and is equipped with a number of failsafe features, including an automatic internal disc brake system that will kick in to avert disaster. The cast steel casing that houses all of the hoist’s components is tough and durable, while the availability of ATEX-rated models means you can pick an option which is suited to your specific industry.
For high speed functionality, the TCS-500 from Red Rooster is an air hoist that can get the job done in no time flat. It has an epicycle gearbox and can hit lifting speeds of up to 33 metres per minute when unloaded, or 17 metres per minute when it is handling heavy equipment or goods.
Yale air hoistOne of the top brands in the entire lifting equipment sector, Yale’s family of air hoists is an understandably popular option for fans of the manufacturer’s other work.
The standard Yale CPA air hoist is a good all-rounder, with models starting out at a 125kg lifting capacity and reaching 980kg in the sturdiest incarnation. Settling load limits is simple using the integrated switches and there is an emergency stop function that will lessen the likelihood of accidents happening. This hoist can be combined with other hardware, including beam attachments, allowing it to be put to good use straight away.
The CPA-HD is a heavy duty equivalent of Yale’s primary air hoist, with the most powerful example offering a load limit of 10 tonnes. The planetary gearbox is perpetually lubricated by the oil bath it occupies, allowing for smooth and consistent performance time after time. The hoist is also designed to keep noise levels low and ensure that optimal torque is applied from the moment it is activated. This is a good example of the kind of performance you can expect from the high quality air hoists that we stock.
