Manual Hoist for tower installation

Julia Austin

Recommended Posts

We have been asked by several customers if we offer a manual hoist for assistance in lifting an 80 m XHD TallTower.  NRG Systems does not offer such a hoist ourselves; however, we have conducted testing and can recommend a Tractel (Tirfor) manufactured hoist, model TU-28.  In Europe, this same model is a TU-16.  Both have a capacity rating of 4,000 lbs (1,360 Kg).  In addition to this particular hoist, we also recommend using the Tractel-supplied cable, which is 7/16? (11mm) diameter) with a 4x26 construction.  Approximately 750 feet (228.6m) of cable is recommended.
