OZ Lifting stainless steel chain hoist

OZ Lifting Products LLC has launched a chain hoist, designed for lifting and pulling, the first in a new range of stainless steel products.

OZ LiftingThe chain hoist, available in 1 ton and 2 ton capacities, is designed for use in corrosive environments where the properties of stainless steel make it a preferred material. Essentially, the composition of the metal prevents rusting and serves as heat resistance. Coastal and marine industries are among the myriad of sectors where lifting products are integral to operations in extreme environments that place added demands on equipment.

The Winona, Minnesota-based manufacturer offers the stainless steel chain hoist with standard heights of lift (lengths of pull) of 10 ft. 15 ft., 20 ft. and 30 ft; the larger unit has two chain falls compared to the smaller hoist’s one. However, it does provide custom lengths to meet the requirements of the application. The net weights of the hoist heads are only 28.7 lbs. and 43 lbs. respectively.

Steve Napieralski, president at OZ Lifting, said: “The Grade 304 [stainless steel] product is the focal point of our new range. The hoist is lightweight and minimal effort is required to lift loads, but it is durable enough for some of the most demanding marketplaces. Early signs are that we are going to attract widespread interest from end users.”

The new product is now available to send to OZ Lifting’s network of regional distributors, but it has already been utilizing healthy stock at the facility in Minnesota to deliver same- or next-day shipment directly to end customers. The stainless steel finish is the only coloration currently available, further accelerating delivery to the point of use.
