Electric Chain Hoists

Electric Chain Hoists

The balanced, integrated, proven design of the Lodestar has made it the most popular electric chain hoist in the industry.

We have found over years of experience that Lodestar have been a leader in electric chain hoist manufacturers and their product have proven to be both robust & reliable. 

With different Capacity & height of lift (HOL) variations in stock, we are sure to have the correct hoist to suit our clients requirements.  

Although many hoists are standard "off the shelf" items, we can modify most to meet exact requirements. Extra long lifts, variable frequency drives for precise positioning, and special hook/trolley configurations are just a few modifications that can be made.

Hoists can be integral part of overhead lifting systems that combine a crane or jib as an attachment point and below-the-hook lifting devices for securely attaching a load.
