With its low end products at less than Eur 150, these hoists are equipped with load limiters for enhanced safety and a machined load sheave and reduction gears ensuring, Verlinde said, “optimised and smoother operation”.

The load sheave and reduction gears are machined to ensure the most efficient operation (less friction with respect to models implementing cast parts).

The hoist is equipped with a load limiter in its standard version to avoid any overload operations, except for 250kg model VHR1.

Standard lifting height is 3m, although other heights are available upon request.

The hand-chain is 50cm shorter than the lifting chain. High strength steel accommodates a lifting chain, category 80, with galvanized finish for corrosion resistance.

The VHR’s compact design provides for a small, low-weight unit. Verlinde said this hoist is ideal for construction, assembly and maintenance operations. The steel casing ensures solid protection of the mechanical components. Upper and lower hooks are made of treated steel alloy with safety latches.
