Do you need True Vertical Lift?
True vertical lift is the lack of any lateral hook drift as the hook moves vertically throughout the full range of motion. Single reeved wire rope hoists cause slight lateral movement of the hook, generally around a 1/4 of an inch lateral movement, for every 12 inches of vertical movement. For most jobs, this lateral movement will not cause a problem, but for some applications this movement can be damaging. If true vertical lift is required, a double reeved configuration will be needed. You will often pay a premium for true vertical lift at lower capacities, so it is important to understand if you really need this feature. By nature of their design, chain hoists provide true vertical lift by the nature of their design. Chain hoists for capacities up to 20 tons may be a more economical choice.
