The hoist comes standard with 115/230-volt (single phase) or 230/460-volt (three-phase) motors. A 575-volt motor is optional.

The hoist features a lightweight, compact design, most models weigh less than 35lbs (15.8kg). A 10-pocket lift-wheel reduces chain wear. The motors are thermally protected and the gear train is lifetime lubricated with non-oxidising grease.

Each hoist incorporates a DC braking system. All models contain a capacity limiter to protect hoist and operator from lifting potentially damaging overloads.
