Tractel Griphoist Tirfor® Wire Rope Hoist, 8,000 LB Capacity

Item # TU-32 Category

The griphoist®/tirfor® lifting and pulling hoist is safe, reliable and efficient. Suitable for many applications, the griphoist®/tirfor® is a lever-operated wire rope hoist using a separate wire rope.

The griphoist®/tirfor® can replace conventional winches and other hoists for many applications. Best uses are when doing long pulls or when requirements call for increasing capacity. It is possible for lifting and pulling applications to increase the capacity of the griphoist®/tirfor® by using multiple sheave blocks without the user being directly in front of load.
