Comparison of Hoist Duty Service Classifications, as described in United States and European Wire Rope Hoist Specifications


COMPARISON OF HOIST DUTY SERVICE CLASSIFICATIONS, AS DESCRIBED IN UNTED STATES AND EUROPEAN WIRE ROPE HOIST SPECIFICATIONS – Hoist Manufacturers may often not be aware of exact hoist applications, and further the nature of the liability laws in the United States, it has customarily been the practice of the United States hoist manufacturers to design and build products with long, although unspecified, service lives. This may be contrasted with the practices of many European manufacturers who build and provide products for specific applications and state mandated removal from service dates for overhaul or replacement. The Hoist Manufacturers Institute (HMI) has created the “Comparison of Hoist Duty Service Classifications, as described in United States and European Wire Rope Hoist Specifications”, to offer this information to those considering purchase and use of overhead handling hoists (excluding Electric Chain Hoists).
