Swivel Truck Low Headroom
  • The Zephyr Swivel Truck Low Headroom Trolley Hoist maintains the absolute minimum distance between the bottom of the runway beam and the hook saddle in the uppermost position. They are available in 1/4 through 6 ton capacities with either plain or hand geared trolleys. These hoists combine the advantages of the Chester swivel truck trolley design with compact construction without sacrificing any essentials of ruggedness. These units incorporate the same heavy duty steel components common to our Zephyr Hoist product line.
  • The Zephyr Swivel Truck Low Headroom Hoist can traverse tight curves without binding or scraping. Due to the hoists compact design, runways can be built closer to walls or projections. The extreme low headroom feature can be employed in existing structures or in new construction were cost savings can be realized due to lower ceiling height requirements.
  • These hoists are also ideal for patented monorail applications where minimum headroom is required with interlocks, turntables or switches. These hoists are adaptable to most monorail systems as well as other types of rails. Units are available with track clamps, load limiters, chain containers and an assortment of other options including spark and corrosion resistance.
