Wire rope hoists lift loads by utilizing a grooved drum around which the wire rope is wrapped. Wire rope hoists are the ideal hoist option for very high-capacity lifting applications where frequent use throughout the day will occur. Industrial wire rope hoists offer a much wider selection of options compared to chain hoists, with the added benefit of extremely fast lifting speeds and reduced wear. Additionally, the larger components of a wire rope hoist allow them to withstand the intense heat created by constant lifting. Crane Depot is a leading supplier of industrial wire rope hoists and we are ready to help you select the right hoist for your application. Whether you need to lift very high-capacity loads in a foundry or need a durable hoist to withstand the harsh and frequent lifting environment of a lumber mill, Crane Depot is here for you.
