Hoists Direct offers many different brands, capacities, lifts, and options for electric chain hoists. Electric chain hoists offer the best option for lifting 5-tons or less. When selecting an electric hoist you need to determine the voltage or power supply (single phase or 3-phase), capacity, lift (length of chain), suspension (hook, geared trolley, motorized trolley), pendant control length (length of push button controller), duty cycle, hoist speed, trolley speed, and beam size. Electric chain hoists can also be configured with a weatherproofing option for the use of the hoist in an outdoor environment, a spark resistant option or a stainless steel option for the use of the hoist in a food grade environment. Once you determine your electric chain hoist specifications, you can see which manufacturers meet your requirements so you are able to buy the best product at the best price.
