Tractel (Grip Hoist)

The TU-500 Series of Griphoist is a slightly smaller and lighter version of the TU Series.  Don't let the smaller size or lighter weight fool you.  These Griphoist's pack the same performance as their big brothers.

The TU-500 Series of Griphoist is a portable manual hoist with traversing wire rope that can lift, pull and place loads across great distances with extreme precision without exceeding their maximum working load limit. These lever operated wire rope hoists are suitable for use in numerous applications including Vehicle Extrication, Confined Space Rescue and Building Collapse. These hoists are portable, strong and can be used in any orientation.
