FAQs About Hoists
Whether you need an air chain hoist or a come-a-long, United Rentals carries a collection of hoist rentals to meet the needs of your project. Hoists are designed to efficiently lift heavy materials by way of a wheel or drum and a chain or rope. Additionally, we offer many different types of hoists, used across a wide variety of industries. For example, electric chain hoists hook onto nearly anything, making them great for lifting and lowering heavy loads in tight areas that traditional lifts can't access. Grip pullers are smaller than a come-a-long and use wire rope to similarly lift, pull, lower or stretch your loads. Whether you’re looking for a hoist to help replace engines, lower materials or shift turbines, our selection is sure to have a match.
How do you mount an electric hoist to the ceiling?
United Rentals offers electric chain hoists with a hook block, making it easy to mount the hoist in even tight areas. Before mounting the chain hoist, be sure to check the supporting structure and the connection between the load hook and structure to make sure they are able to withstand the weight of the load.
What kind of hydraulic fluid do you use for an engine hoist?
When replacing the fluid in your hydraulic engine hoist, you should only use high-quality hydraulic jack oil that's made specifically for jacks of engine hoists. If you have any questions, the manual for your engine hoist should provide recommended products. Need more guidance? Contact your local United Rentals for assistance.
Is an aerial lift the same as a hoist lift?
No, an aerial lift is a work platform meant to lift personnel for work at height. A hoist lifts or lowers a load using a rope or chain wrapped around a drum in a pulley system that's powered manually or by a hydraulic, electric or engine-driven motor.
