One of the oldest hoist manufacturers in the world. Yale’s leadership in the hoisting industry was recognized from the earliest times. In fact, the Yale name has stood for quality for over 100 years!
It all began in 1875, when Linus Yale invented the Differential Hoist launching the monorail hoist industry. Since then, the Yale company has contributed numerous advancements, as well as a continued introduction of safety-oriented accessories like the Weston Screw Load Brake, first introduced way back in 1879.
Quality engineered and performance tested, Yale products, like the company itself, are built to last. Yale hoists come with two choices of load chain; roller and link. Roller chain provides smoother, quieter operation for light to medium duty applications. Roller chain models are available only in hook suspension.
Link chain hoists are ideal for heavier service applications requiring repeated lifting cycles. All link chain models are available in either hook or lug suspension.
All Yale electric hoists are equipped with a heavy duty, positive acting, short-stroke DC rectified disc motor brake. The brake is rated at 150% torque to stop and hold the load. In addition, all hoists are provided with a Weston-type mechanical load brake for load lowering control and as a backup to the hoist motor brake. An overload device is also standard on all Yale Electric Chain Hoists. The overload device protects the hoist, operator and supporting structure by preventing dangerous overloads.
A wide variety of trolleys are provided for both hook and lug-suspended hoists. Trolleys are available in push, hand-geared and motor-driven versions. Hook-on trolleys are available in eitherpush or hand-geared versions. Rigid Mount trolleys are available in push, hand-geared and motor-driven versions. Yale hoists are available in a variety of controls to meet the specific need of your application. The standard control is single speed with options available for two speed and variable frequency. All Yale electric hoists and/or motor-driven trolleys are CSA approved.
