Press release date: Nov 01, 2011

Manheim, PA - Harrington Hoists, Inc. has launched a new line of Electric Wire Rope Hoists, the RHN Series. These hoists are offered in two configurations. The Deck / Base Mounted hoist in 2 - 20 metric tons and Ultra-Low Headroom trolley hoist in 2 - 15 metric tons. Both versions are dual speed.

The Deck / Base Mounted hoist features a compact, modular design that is perfect for stationary applications or combined with a double girder trolley for double girder crane systems. The Ultra-Low Headroom trolley hoist is ideal for top running and underhung overhead bridge cranes.

The minimal maintenance that is required on the RHN is made simple from rope without special fittings, cast iron rope guide, easy-access controls and motors. Key features include a heavy-duty fan-cooled motor, adjustable geared limit switch, load limiter, secondary block operated limit switch and a motor management device equipped with a count hour meter.
