Answering 3 of Your Hoisting Questions

Don’t start any kind of hoisting project until you get the answers to these 3 questions.

If you’re relatively new to the hoist world, you probably have a ton of questions about how to get the job done just right. Luckily, we’ve got the answers you need!

1. “Is there a way to make my team more efficient?”
Let’s face it — the sooner you can get your hoisting duties done, the sooner you can move onto your next paying gig. If you’re looking for a way to make the most out of your time (without sacrificing anyone’s safety, of course!), invest in a hand chain hoist.
Thanks to its pulley system, a hand chain hoist can lift practically anything up into the air. And, best of all, it only takes one person to work it! As a result, each member of your team can work independently — while still taking advantage of super strength!
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, you’ll be happy to know that a hand chain hoist is relatively inexpensive. Since it uses pulleys instead of powerful motors, it’s a whole lot cheaper than other types of hoisting equipment. That way, you can afford to have a ton of them on hand!

2. “What is Myte?”
Pronounced “my-tee”, this company’s equipment can make you feel mighty efficient out on your job site! Myte products are considered to be some of the best in the hoist industry.
What do they make?
They manufacture a variety of products, but they’re famous for their winch hoists. A winch hoist is kind of like the tow truck of the hoisting world. It works horizontally — meaning it can pull heavy-duty loads along a flat surface, instead of hoisting things up into the air. After all, trying to move that giant load from one side of the building to another can be downright impossible without the right tools!

3. “What do I do if I need to hoist something and leave it there permanently?”
Most hoisting equipment is used on a temporary basis. Once you get the load where it needs to be, you pack up the equipment and go home. The only exception is festooning equipment.
Even though it has a silly-sounding name, festooning means serious business. It connects directly to your ceiling. From there, you hoist up whatever you need — like cables, for example — and connect them to the festooning. Once everything is secure, you can leave it suspended from the ceiling for as long as you want!
