    1. Prevent Material Breakage and Protect Profits

      • Eliminate jarring starts and stops with smooth acceleration and deceleration.

        Traditional discrete hoists go from off to top speed and from top speed to off instantly. This causes a severe jolt of the transport material and leads to significant breakage.
        Beta Max VFD hoists accelerate and decelerate smoothly protecting your payload and saving you money.

        See the difference between a VFD and Discrete hoist by clicking the video.

      • Controlled placement of panels.

        Beta Max VFD hoists have a standard slow speed of 8 ft. per minute. This speed is ideal for toggling materials into place.

      • Wire rope precision delivers exact payload elevation

        Getting a chain hoist to stop at the exact height you want is difficult because of how the links move through the hoist. A wire rope hoist does not have links and can stop at the exact height you need.

    2. Maximize Productivity and Complete Jobs Faster

      • Deliver glazing materials to work level fast (80 fpm)

        Workers aren’t standing around waiting on materials to install. Our VFD hoists smoothly accelerate up to 80 ft. per minute.

      • No re-rigging with “Pick and Place” mounting options

        Wireless Remote Control

        Dual Wireless Remote Controls

        Our parallel I-beam trolley mount allows you to move the hoist along the entire face of the building. This means you can pick up your panel at ground level, raise it to install height and trolley along the building and into place, all in one go. – That’s Fast.

      • Pass hoist control to the right person at the right time

        Two hand held wireless controllers create wireless freedom from long cumbersome pendant cords. Give the worker at ground height control of the hoist while rigging and initial lift. Then pass control of the hoist to the worker waiting to receive / place the payload.

    3. Generate Higher Profits Per Project And Per Year

      • Own for the cost of renting.

        In many cases, for the cost of rent, permits, setup and breakdown of a single crane, you can OWN multiple Beta Max Hoists.
        These hoists pay for themselves on the first job and add significant profits to the bottom line for every job after that.

      • Win more bids by working independently of the GC

        General Contractors prefer subs that use their own equipment to deliver materials. Coordinating use of the GC’s equipment to deliver materials is a headache and potential bottleneck the GC would rather avoid.

      • Complete more projects in a given year

        Winning more projects and completing them faster means you can bid on more work and take on more work each year – more work equals more revenue.

     

    The Preferred Leo XXL Mounting Option Is

     

    I Beam TrolleyI Beam Trolley: 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.
