Wire rope hoists are available in a wide range of capacities, have multiple mounting options, and are available with a wide range of speeds. Wire rope hoists are available in capacities ranging between 1 ton and 300+ tons. Depending on your needs these hoists can be mounted with different design options. Underhung, top running, and nested designs are available. Underhung: When the hoist is mounted below the bridge girder. Top running: When the hoist is mounted on top of the bridge girder. Nested: When the hoist is mounted in between the bridge girders. This option is often used in situations with marginal headroom clearance.
