The Spacemaster® SX Hoist represents a revolutionary new generation of exceptionally reliable electric wire rope hoists, featuring advanced technology and cutting-edge performance. Unique features include a large drum diameter (for best wheel loads and lowest headrooms and near true vertical lift). Additional features include sealed brakes, two-speed motor, trolley inverter control and very low maintenance.

Standard Features

Anti-Sway Load Movement

The ControlMaster Anti-Sway System

This optional control unit for the QX modular crane package enables your operators to move loads from one location to another without load sway.

Load movement becomes a faster, safer process because the operator can focus on the load and surrounding area.

No matter how high your load is lifted, the Anti-Sway ControlMaster will control the load sway.

How does it work?

The ControlMaster Anti-sway System automatically adjusts the crane traveling movements. Based on the distance between the center of the rope drum and the load (pendulum length), the system uses a mathematical calculation to estimate load swing. Thus, the ControlMaster Anti-Sway System keeps the hoist directly over top of the load by maintaining, accelerating, decelerating or reversing the travel speed and/or directions.
