Hoists

Didsbury Engineering wire rope hoists are designed for safe materials handling and man-riding operations. They are lightweight, portable and easy to use with Didsbury Engineering Tripod and Davit Systems or suspended from any suitable overhead fixture.

 

The enclosed and open drum models are available to accommodate height of lift up to 37 metres. Manually operated in standard form, Didsbury Engineering hoists can also be converted to air power drive by a snap on attachment.

 

Didsbury Engineering hoist enable your workforce to carry out safe and efficient confined space entry and rescue.

LL/RTZ 1.2m Minilift Hoist

 

Didsbury Minilift wire rope hoists are designed for safe goods handling and man-riding operations. The enclosed drum hoist is supplied with an extension tube and top sheath for overhead eyebolt mountings on tripods and davits or with spigot mounting where headroom is restricted.

 

  • Winding mechanisms to suit goods handling and man-riding applications
  • Man-riding 127kg (280 lbs) at safety factor of 10:1 (red handle)
  • Goods handling 254kg (560 lbs) at safety factor of 5:1 (yellow handle)
  • Height of Lift 9m
  • Automatic fail-safe braking system
  • 2-speed manual operation minimises operator effort and allows rapid wind in/wind-out when un-laden
  • Torque limited overload protection on winding handle
  • Unique cable layering system prevents snagging of cable, reduces cable wear
  • Governor controlled rate of descent
  • Optional Air Drive for powered lifting
  • Optional padded storage carry bag
  • Versatile operation and choice of mounting arrangements

Air Drive Assembly

 

For use with Didsbury Engineering, hoist with small and large drive dogs. The air drive assembly interfaces with the drive dog on the hoist and is only used to lift a load.

 

  • The air drive is a pneumatic device that aids the operator when lifting loads using one of Didsbury Engineering’s range of hoists. A trigger lever enables the operator to control the speed of rotation
  • A compressed air supply with a compress air with a dew point between +2°C and +10°C and a working pressure of 6.3-7bar. The air supply must be filtered, regulated and lubricated
  • The air drive includes a precise clutch that shuts off the air drive at a specified torque
  • Different hoist series have different gear ratios so the clutch setting is only valid for one hoist series
