The VSPlus block and tackle is the work horse of the Yale lifting equipment range; it is excellent value for money while maintaining the typical quality we come to expect from Yale. The Yale Lift 360 however is available in many different configurations and can be supplied to our customers in a range rising from 500kg all the way to 20 tonne. The YaleLift360 has a hand chain guard that will rotate through 360 degrees, hence the name. This is a key safety feature meaning that the person operating the hoist can always find a safe location away from the load, to the side or above. Meaning that should there be an unforeseen accident and the load be released then the user would not be “in line” with the load, they would be in a position of safety. The YaleLift 360 can also be supplied Atex, spark resistance, inverted lifting and corrosion resistance. A truly versatile hoist range to serve the needs of heavy industry.
