HE 500 MF Gantry hoist
Thanks to its generous safe working load limit of 500kg, the HE 500 MF is a cost-effective and productive mid-range entry in the wider L’Europea range of gantry hoists from TEA. It share a similar single phase motor to the smaller HE 300 MF, but its higher capacity means that its lifting speed is a little slower. The HE 500 TF brings a three-phase motor to bear on half-tonne lifting tasks that need to get done quicker. This manufacturer also has a good range of scaffold hoists.

Why Choose the HE 500 MF Gantry Hoist?
This TEA L’Europea hoist is pitched perfectly between its counterparts. It does not have the 800kg capacity of the larger HE 800 MF, but it is quite a bit more capable than the HE 300 MF we mentioned earlier.
Hitting an average lifting speed of 11.5 metres per minute is more than adequate in most cases. As the 25 metre cable that is included with this unit can be switched for a longer 35 metre cable, it is possible to expand its performance potential even further.
Weighing in at just 55kg before the accompanying gantry is considered, the HE 500 MF should be straightforward to manoeuvre into position safely by workers. It is a sturdy, consistent bit of kit that compares favourably to other gantry hoists.
Add-Ons for HE 500 MF Gantry Hoists
If you need extras to get your gantry hoists up and running, our site stocks various excellent accessories that are likely to meet your needs. Add in some ballast boxes to make sure you can handle 500kg weights without any risk of tipping. Choose a high capacity bucket to make manoeuvring loose loads less hassle. Pick up a gantry frame with a safe working load limit of up to 800kg. Any or all of these add-ons will let you harness the full potential of the HE 500 MF hoist.
