The outdoor split tube hoist is small in size, light in weight, compact and easy to operate. It uses 220V power supply and can be operated by 2 people. It has a dead weight of 50 kg and a heavy lifting. It is suitable for lifting and lowering construction and decoration materials on two floors or more.
A hoist is usually a strong metal frame which may be static (fixed) or mobile. The frame has a lifting mechanism operated manually or powered by electricity. From the frame or lifting arm/boom is suspended a sling (on a spreader bar), or a chair, to support and carry a person as they are moved from one place or position to another.
A manual lift may use a winding mechanism or a hand pump - this operates a hydraulic cylinder to raise or lower the service user. Hydraulics make the lifting easier and smoother.
Electronic hoists have a power pack/battery which will need charging. A powered hoist will need to be positioned close to an electric socket if you wish to charge the pack in situ, or the power pack can be removed from the hoist and plugged in elsewhere to charge. All electric hoists must have emergency stop buttons and manual release mechanisms to allow the service user in the hoist to be lowered without battery power in an emergency.
