Getting A Hoist

I need a hoist in the store (warehouse) to lift pallets and other heavy stuffs efficiently. Therefore, I looked and searched for companies selling hoist. After calling and requesting quotations from few companies (selling hoist), I browsed the net to have a sneak peak on those companies to see what are the products and services they have to offer. It was very interesting to see that there are various types of hoist with various applications and various funny names too. I never knew that hoist have a lot of "species!!" I don't have much time to go through all of the hoist informations, but I'm glad I learned few of them.

Check out some definitions of hoist incase you want to know literally what a hoist is:

  • raise or haul up with or as if with mechanical help; "hoist the bicycle onto the roof of the car"
  • move from one place to another by lifting; "They hoisted the patient onto the operating table"
  • raise; "hoist the flags"; "hoist a sail"
  • lifting device for raising heavy or cumbersome objects

  • "A hoist is a device used for lifting or lowering a load by means of a drum or barrel around which rope or chain wraps. May be manually operated, or electrically or pneumatically driven and may use chain, or fiber or wire rope as its lifting medium."

    "A mechanical lifting device usually attached to a trolley that travels along a bridge, monorail, or jib crane."

    Some companies selling hoist:
    harringtonhoists.com (USA)
    hoistlift.com (USA)
    mstime.com.my (Malaysia) >>> Interesting flash preview!! There are a lot of interesting names for their hoists: "Street, Donati, Italkrane, JD neuhaus, MS Herkules and Daesar."

    Very interesting too....There are a magazine "specializing in hoist"
