A lifting hoist is an essential part of any crane or lifting equipment and is used to lift or lower heavy, oversized or irregularly shaped loads. Hoists are used in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, packaging, transport, construction, mining and the utilities sector. Hoists are typically characterised by two key attributes: the lifting medium and the power type. Lifting medium refers to what the hoist is made of, whether it is wire rope or chain, while power type describes how the hoist is operated. For example, you can have hydraulic, air driven or electric chain hoists (electric being the most common). As trusted hoist equipment suppliers, Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment offers a wide selection of electric chain hoists, air hoists, wire rope hoists and vehicle hoists, as well as lifting attachments for your hoist lifting equipment.
