Spider, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, recently launched the next generation Astro E2200 traction hoist.
With the best-in-class 2,200 lb load capacity and integrated safeties, the new Astro E2200 offers the perfect lifting solution for heavy construction and industrial installation and maintenance, including various elevator projects.
The integrated safeties are built into the body of the hoist, ensuring operator safety by eliminating the risk of omission or poor install. The longest duty cycle in its class provides the operator confidence to finish the job. Load dependent traction extends the life of the wire rope. And modular construction, ergonomic handles, and a standard visible hour meter are additional features that make the Astro E2200 easy to operate.
Additionally, with a few simple modifications of the controls, pendant, or mechanical interface, the Astro E2200 can be customized to meet the customer’s unique elevator installation needs.
“For over 25 years, Astro has provided a safe, robust and proven lifting solution for a variety of industrial and construction applications,” comments John Sotiroff, Vice President of Sales and Distribution. “Now the next generation Astro E2200 delivers the same proven performance, but with increased load capacity specifically designed for heavy elevator projects. It is available for rent or purchase from 24 Spider locations in the Americas, enabling easy, cost-effective support and service locally.”
The Astro E2200 is UL-classified and manufactured in Spider’s ISO 9001:2008 certified facility.
