Telescopic tube arrangement in place to enable adjustment to deliver all range of applications.
Extended to 40ft cable whilst maintaining the existing Didsbury hoist benefits:
Single layer cable layering – no birds nesting
Cable can be wound out without requiring tension to be maintained
Minimum of 4:1 Factor of Safety
2-speed manual operation minimises operator effort and allows rapid wind in/wind out
