Zero-G™ Servo Hoist

Zero-G™ Servo Hoist Overview


The Zero-G™ servo hoist helps to improve the speed, precision, and ergonomics beyond that of a conventional push button hoist.   

This version of a hoist does not require up/down push buttons.  Instead the operator applies a small force to the handle grip and the hoist moves at a speed proportional to the force applied to the grip.  This hoist responds instantly with a correlating up or down movement.

Float Mode


This type of servo hoist features a “float mode” for precise movements.  After pressing the float mode button an operator can push directly on the part and carefully position it into a fixture, for example.  Press the button again to exit float mode.

The display shows the current status, as well as the approximate weight of the load supported.
