SWF Nova wire rope hoists are available for loads up to 80 tonne and lifting heights of more than 100m with many features as standard and more features offered as options.


The Nova wire rope hoist has a compact design and optimum dimension, with minimum hook movement because as far as wear and tear, hook movement and approach dimensions are concerned it simply leaves the competition standing.

The CRABster winch range is a modular winch for efficient heavy load handling of loads from 32t to 160t and is available as a solo winch or as a complete crane kit. The Compact design and use of two ropes means the CRABster lifts with no horizontal hook movement. Available as a fixed position winch or a double girder trolley, the CRABster is supplied with 6 control panels which are already completely wired.


To reduce maintenance the CRABster has a new hook block design with sheaves to reduce any rope wear, a standard central lubrication point and easily accessible upper sheaves and the overload protection means the CRABster is service-friendly.
