Beta Max Inc., a leading provider of affordable material lifting solutions, offers its Leo Series of electric utility portable hoists. The Leo Series, which includes the Leo and the Leo XXL, is designed in compliance with current safety regulations and comes equipped numerous features that ensure optimum safety and maximum control when lifting materials in the construction and glazing industries.
All Leo hoists are equipped with a push button pendant and upper limit switch assembly, enabling secure and easy up and down movement that instantly stops when the upper limit switch is activated. The heavy-duty Leo XXL can accommodate a maximum payload of 2000 pounds and can travel up to 200 feet. The hoist contains a non-rotating cable to help keep loads from spinning while lifting and lowering, and features fail-safe conical brakes to hold the load securely when the hoist is not actively transporting material.
Featuring integrated Variable Frequency Drive Controllers, the Leo Series offers contractors a number of speed settings that make lifting delicate materials easier and safer. Additionally, the Leo hoists include a sturdy electrical controller with an overload sensing device to protect the motor from damage caused by overwork or poor power supply. Soft start and stop capabilities make the hoists perfect for maneuvering fragile products, and operators are able to lift materials as delicate as glass panels in finite increments and set them down without causing damage to the product.
The Leo Series is available for use in conjunction with Beta Max’s I-beam mounting option, the most flexible and versatile mounting system available. The hoists can be easily attached to existing I-beams using adjustable trolleys, and can be equipped with motorized trolleys to provide horizontal as well as vertical movement.
All Beta Max Hoists Systems meet or exceed ANSI and OSHA specifications.
