Designed to ensure optimum safety when lifting general building materials in the construction, restoration, scaffolding, facility maintenance and power plant markets, the Max Climber 1000 is equipped with premium features that allow operators better control. It has been designed in compliance with current safety regulations and comes standard with a push-button pendant and upper and lower limit switch assembly, enabling easy up-and-down movement that instantly stops when the limit switches are activated. Additionally, the hoist comes equipped with a downward interruption sensor that will automatically stop operation if it senses a foreign object in its path. Separate over-speed brakes serve as the emergency back-up and prevent free-falling. The hoist can travel up to 400 feet and can accommodate a maximum payload of 1,000 pounds.
