The base of the hoist is folded to ensure light weight , strength and only 50 mm wide. Stock crates, tool boxes and the like can remain on the vehicle. Generally the hoist is used to lift items that require two or more people eg. generators, compressors, welders, 44 gallon drums and fencing materials. The Lindsell Hoist does not require a licence to operate, (excluding ACT).
The Lindsell Hoist is powered by a 12 or 24 volt electric/hydraulic power unit using the vehicle's battery. This independent power unit enables the hoist to lift 250kg at 2.5 metres 400kg at 1.6 metres above the tray and 700kg at 0.9 metres. The boom rises to 2.4 metres above the surface of the tray and lowers to approximately 50cms below the tray.
A complete Lindsell Hoist includes the base, boom, power cable, handset control (3.5 metre cable), adjustable support leg, bolts, nuts and diagram form safety instructions. The hydraulic cylinder is a standard type ensuring easy service no matter what part of Australia you are located.
The standard safety features are :-
- Built in relief valve to avoid overloading
- Velocity fuse (hose burst) for hydraulic cylinder. Designed by MLT.
- Flow control valve enabling the operator to adjust the speed at which the boom is lowered and raised.
- Telescopic Boom to 2.5 metres
- Two way Ratchet Locking Slew Boom . All Models RLP
This enables the operator to work the load without the risk of backward slew towards the operator . Both directions are lockable making the Lindsell Hoist one of the safest manual handling hoists available. All pins are hardened and CNC machined to give optimum performance in all weather conditions.
