Low Headroom Air Trolley and Hoist ULT

Low Headroom Air Trolley & Hoist ULT

ULT series hoists are designed specifically for mining, industrial and general engineering applications where headroom is extremely limited such as locomotive battery bays, pump chambers and underground workshops. They are available in geared and motorized traverse versions. The hoists operate at air pressures of between 4 and 6 bar and have a factor of safety in excess of 5 at the rated load. They comply with the requirements of SANS 1638, ASME B30.16 and EN14492-2. The manufacturing facility producing the hoists is 1509001, 5014001 & OHSAS18001 certified.

  • Range — 2, 3, 4 & 6t
  • Ultra-low headroom, compact and versatile
  • Available in geared and motorized versions
  • Greater than 5:1 factor of safety
  • Integrated load limiter

More features of Tiger Air Chain Hoists

Load Limiter
Integral differential pressure load limiting valve automatically prevents the operator lifting a load of more than 125% of the working load limit. Load limiter is 100% repeatable at all working pressures and does not wear or generate damaging heat.

Emergency Stop
All hoists can be supplied with an emergency stop device as an option. This shuts off the main air supply to the hoist when activated. Resetting the device will not automatically restart the hoisting operation.

Precise Control
Accurate and precise positioning of loads is standard for both toggle and pendant control models.

Fail Safe Disc Brake
Non-asbestos self-adjusting disc brake is applied automatically when the air supply to the hoist is shut off. The brake is self-adjusting for the life of the brake and can hold more than 125 % of the working load limit.


Automatic Stopping
Motorized traverse drive stops automatically due to the worm drive when the air supply is shut off. Additional traverse brake is optional.

Integral Silencer
The exhaust air silencer limits the noise level to 83dB(A).

Load Chain
Grade 8 load chain ensures stringent high-speed duty cycles can be met. The load chain is in accordance with the requirements of SANS/ISO 3077 and EN818-7 Appendix B.

Vane Motor
Assisted vane lifting ensures maximum starting torque when starting under load.

Sealed Gearbox
The sealed planetary gearbox ensures that the most stringent duty cycles can be met. The gears are heat treated and mounted on high strength, low friction bearings.
