PtP Spanco Inc. has launched an electric chain hoist called the Workmate.

Available in lift heights from 10ft to 20ft, a range of capacities and in voltages of 110V, 230V and 460V, the Workmate electric chain hoist features a proprietary style hook with a die-cast latch that is designed to reduce weight while retaining a safety factor of 8:1.

The chain is coated in a manganese phosphate that increases its lifespan, especially in adverse/harsh environments. It comes as standard with an IP65 environmental protection class, which means the Workmate is dust-tight and low-pressure water jet-resistant.

The Workmate is constructed with a diecast aluminum housing that PtP Spanco says “can be disassembled and reassembled in a fraction of the time it would take for an older electric hoist and many competitors’”.

The US company also claims the hoist is easy to maintain and service as well due to its modular design, with a slip clutch and chain guide taking less than 15 minutes to replace.

"People are demanding a higher-quality hoist and we have met that challenge,” says Tim Bambrick, vice president of sales and marketing at Spanco. “We are known for our durable cranes, so our hoist has to be equally robust, and the Workmate hits the mark.

"The Workmate is the perfect partner for our family of cranes."

The product is backed by a two-year warranty.

PtP Spanco, Inc., a subsidiary of Promise to Perform Industries, Inc., a provider of overhead material handling solutions including gantry cranes, jib cranes, workstation bridge cranes and monorails.
