Harrington Hoists has launched a new line of electric wire rope hoists, the RHN ‘Rhino’ Series.


These hoists are offered in two configurations. The deck or base-mounted hoist version is available in capacities from 2–20t; the ultra-low headroom trolley hoist in 2–15t. Both versions are dual speed.

The deck or base mounted hoist features a compact, modular design that is perfect for stationary applications or combined with a double girder trolley for double girder crane systems.  The ultra-low headroom trolley hoist is ideal for top running and underhung overhead bridge cranes.  The compact body and short end approach result in the longest hook travel possible in facilities with limited space.
Harrington says these ‘user-friendly’ hoists offer a lifetime lubricated gear box and an electromagnetic brake that never needs adjustment. The minimal maintenance that is required on the RHN is made simple by design elements such as rope without special fittings, a cast iron rope guide, and easy-access controls and motors.  Key features include a heavy-duty fan-cooled motor, adjustable geared limit switch, load limiter, secondary block operated limit switch and a motor management device equipped with a count hour meter.
