The company’s lightweight, compact WXN electric chain hoist is mounted to a jib crane within the nacelle of the turbine. Offering a standard lifting capacity from 1/8 ton to 1 ton and optional higher capacities, the hoist features a suspended hook, standard two-speed hoisting, epoxy-painted protection and efficient heat dissipation through its ribbed design. The body is constructed from pressure-cast aluminum and the electric control panel provides easy access for maintenance. Heat-treated, high-precision lubricated gears ensure quiet operation.
