Portable wire rope hoists are designed for flexibility and ease of setup, usually featuring a motorized unit that reels in a wire rope or cable to lift and lower loads. These hoists offer a solution for transporting materials to different levels on scaffolding or between floors of a construction project.
Gemini Plus
The Gemini Plus portable wire rope hoist delivers unmatched power as the largest 110v hoist on the market. Lift up to 600 lbs at 80 ft/min or a hefty 1200 lbs at 40 ft/min. Its compact design excels in tight spaces where traditional options fail. Enjoy easy installation on scaffolding, I-beams, or rooftops for ultimate jobsite flexibility.
Basket with Spreader Bar
This type of accessory provides a more convenient way of lifting materials with a hoist. The basket provides a secure container, while the spreader bar keeps the basket level and prevents the load from tipping or swinging during lifting or lowering.

Rack and pinion systems offer a different type of hoisting mechanism, often used for larger or heavier loads. These systems feature a motorized gear (the pinion) that engages with a vertical toothed rail (the rack) to provide smooth and powerful lifting and lowering capabilities.

Material Hoist
A rack and pinion material hoist provides a robust solution for lifting heavy materials to different levels of a construction site or scaffold structure. These hoists can safely handle larger loads than typical portable wire rope hoists and are often used to transport concrete blocks, scaffolding components, or other bulky materials.
Transport Platform
A transport platform also uses a rack and pinion system but is designed specifically for safely lifting personnel. These platforms are subject to stricter safety regulations and include features like guardrails, emergency stop systems, and multiple safety redundancies.
