Motorized drum winches are single or dual drum hoists with capability for multiple lines per drum. They are a great solution for four-point suspension of scoreboards, speaker clusters or other loads. Lifting capacities are commonly several tons with travel distance built to specification.

FlexiLift is a small, one or two line, 399 lb capacity hoist that weighs less than 100 lbs and uses 120V supply. Wireless remote control is available. FlexiLift is a great choice for banners, suspended pieces and chandeliers requiring less than 40 feet of travel.

Lineshaft hoists can be a good fit for lighting battens, curtains and heavy banners located next to catwalks. The configuration of multiple drums attached to a single drive shaft allows mounting directly above loads to eliminate block systems. They are available in customizable drum (lift line) quantity, lifting capacities and travel distances.

Pile-On hoists are available for single-line applications with loads or travel distances greater than the FlexiLift's capacity. They are often a great choice for large chandeliers.

Rotary limit Switches come standard in most of our hoist designs. Four-element design provides two low-limit and two high limit settings.
