Habegger Manual Hoists

These manual pulley blocks are characterized by their outstanding quality and safety, first-class material and overload protection device. At the Habegger rope hoist a wire rope is inserted through two pairs of clamping jaws. By moving of a crank arm the rope is shifted jolt- and slip-free. A lever mechanism has the effect that alternately one clamping jaw pair opens up and drags the rope while the other pair stays closed. Under pressure both clamping jaws automatically lock themselves. Thereby the clamp pressure increases proportionally to the payload.

Habegger rope hoists are available in several seizes with nominal forces of 600 to 3.200 kg ((HIT-6, HIT-10, HIT-16, HIT-32). The special steel ropes are offered for the necessary size with the requested diameter and diverse lengths.

Habegger Power Driven Hoists

At the power driven hoists from Habegger (HIT-TRAC) the rope is directed around the driving gear and expelled again in unencumbered condition. The wire rope of unlimited length can be inserted and detached rapidly and easily at each arbitrary position of its length. Complicated arranging of one side is not necessary. An integrated protective device in form of a slip clutch or a thermal protection preserves the rope hoist device from overload. Additionally, the devices have a limit stop switch, which stops the electric engine automatically if the load is pulled against the case.

The power driven hoists are available with an electric motor and fuel engine and in diverse sizes with nominal forces of 800 to 12.800 kg. (HIT-TRAC 8E, HIT-TRAC 8B, HIT-TRAC 16E. HIT-TRAC 16E, HIT-TRAC 32E, HIT-TRAC 64E, HIT TRAC 128E). Special steel ropes are offered for the necessary size with the recommended diameter and in several lengths. Furthermore diverse accessories and spare parts are available.
