Electric rope hoists or more frequently electric wire rope hoists or simply rope hoists are used to carry heavier loads and faster lifting speed vis-a-vis electric chain hoists.

The rigorously modular construction of STAHL’s SH and SHW electric rope hoists ranges permits practically unlimited combinations of components both for simple and for individual solutions.

The modular system ensures efficient production at the highest level of quality and maximum flexibility. Five frame sizes of the SH range with 26 S.W.L. variants, from 500 kg to 100,000 kg, are available and can be used in standardised cranes, custom-built cranes or in overhead conveyor systems.

The distinct features of Stahl electric wire rope hoists are:

  • Continuous electronic monitoring of the load on hook
  • Stahl cast iron rope guide will ensure long lasting operation
  • Heavy duty motor Classification to FEM 4m
  • Brake is deliberately manufactured oversize to maximise contact and minimise load free falling
  • Electronic controlled motor and brake management reduce wear & tear
  • Lifetime lubrication gear housing and protected from water and dust ingression
  • Gears are housed which protect them from water and dust
  • Adjustable brakes
  • Motor outside drum enables easy access and facilitates servicing
  • Curve movements
