ST-180 Electric Spider Drum Hoists

Durable, efficient transmission offers workhorse performance with minimal parts and maintenance.

  • Controlled descent at half rated speed during power loss
  • Long-lasting electromagnetic brake; always engaged when power is off
  • Built-in overload sensor and overspeed brake
  • Reinforced midair transfer point and wear plates at base
  • Hour meter records operating hours for maintenance tracking

A self-contained, single line unit, the ST-180 accommodates two workers to double productivity. Contractors can add modular platforms or plank sections between two ST-180s to form a double line suspended scaffold. With modular sections, workers can quickly connect sections without special tools to create a larger working span with flydecks attached. The unit comes equipped with numerous safety devices to ensure safe operation.
