Lifting Capacities of 1600kg

The powered models of the TIRFOR machines complement the manual units for heavy loads, such as operating large work platforms, lifting shuttering, moving machinery, etc.

Depending on the application, the working conditions and the power available, powered operation can be electro-hydraulic or pneumatic.

Key Benefits:

  • Saves time and labour.
  • No operator fatique.
  • Continuous operation.
  • Increaded safety.
  • One powerpack can power 4 Tirfor units all pulling/lifting the same load.
Tirfor TU-16H Pneumatic


Work can be performed in any position; horizontal, vertical or at an angle. There is no limit to the length of wire rope, the capacity can be increased.

Hydraulic Power Pack

Electric PowerPack

Tirfor TU-16H Hydraulic 4 Way

4 TU-16H Tirfors on 1 electric powerpack.

Safe and Reliable:

  • Constant control of the load during lifting and lowering with accuracy to within one millimetre.
  • When stationary the load is automotically distributed between the two jaw units.
  • Overload safety device.
  • TU range approved for lifting personnel in most countries.

Increased Capacity:

Using the sheave block technique, the capacity of the TIRFOR can be increased by a factor of 2,3,4 or more.

The figures given must be multiplied by the nominal capacity of the device.

When calculating the working load limit, include a loss of around 4% per sheave, due to the friction of the sheaves.
