Material Hoist Testimonial

BETA MAX: How did the use of Beta Max equipment help address and solve the project’s special challenges?

 

BENSON: “We stayed within budget on the first job but now that they are paid for, its money in the bank.”

 

BETA MAX: Did you improve on your schedule or timeline?

 

BENSON: “The Beta Max Leo XXL VFD’s Material Hoist help pay for themselves by the speed the Material hoist carries the payload. They move 50% faster than the winches that we normally use. We increased production by at least 30% and finished the project ahead of schedule. This allowed us to send the Material Hoists to start other projects which exceeded our customers expectations. As a result of using Beta Max Products we saved time and money”

 

“We needed a high speed material hoist that could lift 2000lbs up to 200ft with variable speed functionality and offered a variety of mounting options. Beta Max worked closely with us to come up with a solution and provided a lifting system for us on time.”

 

BETA MAX: Were you dealing with any space or setup challenges?

 

“This Beta Max Material Hoist was able to fit in a confined space and was mounted parallel to the building on an I-Beam system that took the hoist from corner to corner of the building. This enabled the hoists to trolley back and forth on each side of the building picking and placing window panels and curtain wall all day long.”

 

BETA MAX: How satisfied are you with Beta Max equipment and service?

 

“We were very satisfied with the level of quality of the product. Our experience with Beta Max was great from the sale to customer service to helpful tips and answered questions from technical service.”

Beta Max Material Hoists Change The Way You Work

  • Work Independently

    Stop sharing crane time with other crews. Eliminate these scheduling headaches and gain complete control over your material delivery.
    When you share resources your schedule and your profits are dependent on the performance of others. Remove that risk with a high speed hoist.

  • Work Efficiently

    Go from ground to placement of material in one go. With hoist setup options like our I-beam trolley system, you eliminate time spent rigging and re-rigging materials. Our wireless remote system transfers control of the hoist from ground to work level giving the closest person control when they need it – Glazing companies have doubled production by combining our I-beam trolley system with our wireless remotes.)

  • Work Non-Stop

    If your people are standing around, you’re losing money. At delivery speeds of 80 feet per minute, our hoists deliver material as fast as your crews work. Our hoists keep your people producing all day long and because they are built to last, you can count on that level of production for years to come.

  • Work Smart

    There are times you want to maximize lifting speed and others where lifting capacity takes priority. Our single line or double line hoist configurations allow you to choose on the fly. Switching between the single line or double line setup takes less than 90 seconds. (Watch how quickly you can switch here.)

Beta Max offers portable material hoist models for every project.

The safest way to move 200 to 2000 lbs. of materials to virtually any job level (up to 400 feet in one run).

 

Safety Features

  • Up limit switch stops the hoist instantly when load reaches the top.
  • Non-rotating wire rope keeps the loads from spinning.
  • Failsafe brake, all loads are powered up and down, no free-falling even in the event of a power loss.
  • Rugged & dependable electrical controller with overload sensing device to protect your hoist from damage.
  • Twist lock power connections prevent the power cords from being accidentally kicked or knocked loose.

    Beta Max Scorpio Post Mount

    Our simplest mounting system is perfect for attaching our lighter weight hoist to existing scaffolding. This mount pivots 180 degrees, allowing convenient unloading at work level.

     

    Beta Max I-Beam Mount

    Our most flexible and versatile mounting system is used with all of our large capacity hoists. The addition of a rolling I-Beam Trolley Top allows many Beta Max Hoists to adapt to existing I-Beams. If the horizontal trolley is not necessary Beta Max offers a Fixed I-Beam Top which firmly holds the hoist stationery on the I-Beam.

     

    Beta Max Trestle Monorail

    Our heavy-duty mounting system is perfect for our large capacity hoists. This mount is easily installed for between-the-floor or rooftop lifting, but must be properly counterbalanced.

     

    Beta Max Scaf Track

    Our most popular mounting system attaches in minutes, with no tools, to existing scaffolding and is used with all Beta Max hoists. Unlimited system lengths are available using add-on 7 ft. Scaff-Trac extensions.

    The Beta Max Portable Hoist Line offers several carrying accessories available for lifting various general job site materials. Rigging options available for adapting the hoist to your particular application and electrical accessories to customize the user operation to best suit your needs.
