Crain Hoists

Crane Hoists

Crane hoists are at the core of our business at RGM Cranes. We are a market leader in the design, manufacture, installation, maintenance and distribution of a comprehensive range of crane hoist solutions.

Crane hoists are specially designed to lift and lower heavy loads and are commonly used in factories, plants, warehouses and construction sites. We ensure our clients are able to move any type of load quickly and efficiently with safety always top-of-mind.

The type of crane hoist used and its components are dependent on the application, environment, required capacity and a number of other important factors, so it’s essential to seek expert advice from an experience supplier and manufacturer such as RGM Cranes, to ensure the correct product selection.

Choose the right crane hoist for the job

With over 30 years’ experience in the industry, RGM Cranes know there is no one-size-fits-all lifting solution. As such, we work with each of our clients to help guide and advise them on the best crane hoist products and services to suit their specific load types, workspaces and industries.

The crane hoist is the heart or engine room of any lifting application and RGM Cranes covers the full spectrum from 150kg up to 80 tons in standard configurations. We are the sole distributor of some of the highest quality products from Europe and Asia, and one of the largest local manufacturers of crane hoist products. Some of our leading brands include the imported Güralp brand and the locally manufactured Surelift SY crane hoists.

Understanding types of crane hoists

Our range of overhead crane hoists encompasses both electric chain hoists and electric wire rope hoists. Single and dual-speed operations are available. Single speed is most commonly used for normal lifting and lowering applications, while dual speed hoists are better suited when more precision movements are required beyond just loading or offloading goods.

In addition to our core products, we carry a full range of chain hoist accessories to ensure we’re able to cater for every type of lifting requirement. While we stand by the superior, industry-leading durability of our products, we always keep a full range of spares in stock to ensure your business is supported and functioning optimally at all times.

Choosing the right type of hoist for your needs is key to ultimately ensure a return of your investment. Get in touch with us for expert assistance in selecting the crane hoist best suited to your workspace and load type.
