Man-riding Hoists & Rescue Winches, Electric & Manual Operation
This category contains machines certified for lifting persons, either to gain access /egress or for casualty rescue applications after a fall. It is sometimes difficult to choose the best liftinghoist (winch) to suit an application, if in doubt please ask our technical staff for the best solution. Things to consider when choosing a man-riding winch are: application, anchorage point, fibre or steel rope, length of rope required, speed of lift required, duty factor (how often it will be used) physical size and weight, environment - please phone for help and assistance. Man-riding hoists are often referred to as a man-riding winch or a rescue winch though this is technically incorrect as a winch is for pulling applications and a hoist used for lifting. We offer man-riding hoists from many top quality fall arrest equipment manufacturers including Tractel, Miller, Yale, Ridgegear, Sala, Protecta and more.
Tractel offers a great selection of man-riding hoists with options for both electric powered and manual lifting operation. Manriding hoists are for lifting both people and systems carrying people. They are used to gain access or egress while working at height and also used for rescue application, either after a fall or emergency evacuation. The Tractel Tirak Electric man-riding wire rope hoists are available with many options including overload alarm, limit switches, cable coiling drums etc. Tractel manual man-riding and rescue hoists are available with steel wire rope and synthetic rope dependant on the user application.
