ABUS Crane Systems has extended its chain hoist range up through to 4,000kg capacity with the launch of the ABUCompact GM8 electric chain hoist.

The new GM8 hoist is a low headroom unit for load capacities up to 4,000kg SWL, and offers extremely swift hoisting speeds of up to 20m/min along with up to M6 heavy duty rating (dependent on SWL).

The GM2 chain hoist features quick plug and socket twist lock connections, a removable chain guide cassette and maintenance-free contactor control equipment.

Another innovation is the specially hardened galvanised steel profile load chain, which allows loads approximately 25 per cent higher than a round steel chain of the same nominal dimensions.

The contact surface between the chain links is larger, reducing wear on the chain and prolonging chain service life.

The sheathed pendant control cable needs no additional strain-relief cables as tensile forces are absorbed by the specially coated sheath outer fabric material.

Other optional features available include a teach-in hoist limit switch, the ABUliner frequency converter for stepless hoisting and lowering, and the ABUS Mini-RC plug-and-play remote control unit.

ABUS provides a four-year warranty and ISO9001 quality assurance, and a nationwide service and spares network.
