ABUS electric wire rope hoists are the central components of crane systems for handling heavy loads. They feature motors, brakes, transmissions and electrical and electronic systems that have all been tried and tested over many years of arduous service. Standard precision travel and lifting speeds allow the power and speed available to be dosed precisely. ABUS electric wire rope hoists are also extremely user friendly, featuring compact design, very easy maintenance and easy plug-in connectors.
Load Capacity: up to 120t
Characteristics: favourable dimensions, comprehensive standard and optional equipment
