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.”
