The Bisomac 210 Hoist uses a strong 2 hp motor that gives it three distinct adantages:
1. Excellent lifting strength for toay's longer and heavier platform configurations.
2. Amazing low voltage performance that eliminates the need for booster transformers, as well as the capability to climb even the tallest buildings without hestitation.
3. Durability and longevity for years of trouble free service.
The overload device makes sure the strong motor doesn't exceed the UL specifications for 1500 lb. rated hoists.
