Lisbon Hoist, Inc., Lisbon, Ohio, U.S., has introduced a rescue feature option that will convert a Power Tripod Hoist into a versatile inspection, maintenance and rescue unit.
The Model 139-102-175 Rescue Feature Hoist is a 300-pound capacity, man-rated manual hoist with up to 175 feet of travel. A second man-rated hoist, mounted on the third leg of the frame, can be manually operated at up to 15 feet per minute. This provides an optional means of fall protection, a rapid retrieval system for emergency back-up and a rescue system when power fails or is not available.
The Rescue Feature Hoist is easily removed and can be used as a stand-alone manual tripod rescue hoist if a separate tripod is purchased.
