The smart hoist features an interface—accessed through a USB connection— that allows the operator to adjust its operating speed and performance easily and quickly.

Offered in capacities from 250 to 1,100 pounds, the unit reaches speeds up to 63 feet per minute. Other highlights include an H4-plus duty cycle, more than 300 motor starts per hour and Class F motor insulation for heavy-duty use.
