Wire rope hoists are essentially electric hoists which uses wire rope as opposed to a chain. We have a couple of options within this category. The wire rope hoist with a variety of trolley options, safe working loads, and rope falls; and also the Minifor hoist which works more like a powered winch and has unlimited heights of lift. This means they are suitable for different purposes. The wire rope hoists are better for industrial settings such as factories and production plants. Whereas the Minifor hoist is better suited to construction sites.
Lifting Gear Direct can now supply the 4 key types of Misia's wire rope hoists from the XM series these include the standard headroom model, the low headroom model, the foot mounted (without trolley) model, and the crab unit model, and with a vast range of lifting capacities available from a conservative 1.6 tonne up to a whopping 50 tonnes, there is a hoist to suit the majority of applications.
Due to the flexibility in model variations, the Misia wire rope hoist is perfect for adapting to most industrial heavy duty lifting applications. Each model is available with either 2 or 4 falls of rope, with the latter offering the higher lifting capacities.
All models are fitted with overload limiters with 2 reaction thresholds, the 1st gives a warning (1st stop), and the 2nd stops all lifting and travel actions (leaving lowering the only option). All Misia hoists also come with a 2 or 3 stage planetary gearbox (lifetime lubricated), robust rope guides & bearings, and high endurance galvanised wire rope.
There are 2 motor options for all models; cylindrical with disc brake or tapered rotor conical allowing even more flexibility, your choice to suit your specific application.
