 need a 110V winch.

I'm in need of a 110V winch that will lift 5-6000 lbs. in a reasonable amount of time. I'm building a freight elevator for my shop and had thought of using a 12V winch but they show only like 5-7 ft. of lift per minute for one in the "Reasonable cost" line, (2-300 dollars), that seems pretty slow. The ones I would like in the 110V, with faster lift times, remote and all that are in the 12-1600.00 dollar class. Is there a less expensive way to do this? I really don't want anything to do with E-bay or any of the online auction stuff, I still like to go to a store, junk yard, where ever and look at something, then buy if it looks good. Frank.

Morning Frank

Usta B around here elevators in all of the larger chicken coops. I don't think they lifted 5000# at a time but I remember several bags of feed, carts and operator all on them.

Have no idea how operated, I was just a little guy.

But it might give you a place to look also for old elevator works.

Edit in: You might look at the old gas station hydraulic lifts or maybe a newer unpside down hyd cable pulley arrangment.

Hrvey; In the real world I would never lift anything half that heavy, but just wanted the added in safety factor of not stressing things to the limit. Or do winches already have a built in safety margin? Frank.

I like the upside down hydraulic cylinder idea. If you did it that way you'd neeed a cylinder with only half the stroke length you plan to lift. You can buy electro-hydraulic pump and resevoirs for a car lift.

If you decided to use the cylinder without cables, you can buy a used hydraulic cylinder with the stroke you're needing from a car hauler.

Better yet is just buy the entire mast assembly from a hi-lo forklift. Around here you can buy these used masts for scrap value. You could even leave the forks on it and weld a steel floor to them. This is probably the cheapest and easiest way to go. And you won't need to build any type of lifting basket or guide rails or anything but heavy mounts on the floor and some way to attach the top of the mast to the walls or posts.

I had never really given a bridge crane much thought, but hey, after seeing this, I will have one in my next shop!

I have (2) 110v winches on my portable gantry. I got them from northern tool (see web link). They're each rated for 1100lb - and will go 16FPM at this rating.

Winches get pretty pricey with higher load ratings. I'm guessing you're not going to find one with super speeds - for two reasons: higher rating typcially means high gear ratios (double the load rating - decrease the speed by a factor of 2) and most folks aren't looking to move super heavy loads a fast speeds (slow is safe).

Depending upon your budget - you could parallel 4 or 5 of the 1100lb winches.

Frank, a 6k load is a LOT to hang on a cable, might be a better deal to find an old used forklift.

As for a winch itself though, we use a regular 1/2 hp. motor into a lovejoy coupler, then into a 90 deep reduction gearbox that then chain drives a pulley to lift the hangar doors. I don't know the weight exactly, but I can tell you a 45' wide, 16' high door is hefty!! It lifts it without even thinking about it.

Best of luck.

Frank,

Check out the CM Lodestar chain hoist.

It's a 110vac electric chain hoist, capable of lifting 6000lbs, up to 20 feet high.

Here's a link.

Frank,

The link I posted is rather confusing. Sorry about that.

I'm looking at the CM Lodestar model #s CMCT9501, CMCT9502, and CMCT9503

These hoists will lift 6000 pounds at a rate of 11 feet per minute with the 2 horse electric motor.......or 5.5 feet per minute with the 1 horse electric motor. (110vac)

If you would rather go with a 2-ton hoist, you can lift 4000 pounds at up to 16 feet per minute with the 2 horse electric motor......or 8 feet per minute with the 1 horse motor. (110vac)

Joel

Thanks for all the info. I'm going with a 3000 lb. rated cable wrap enclosed worm gear drive hoist W/3 hp. belt drive electric motor. Ok, get your calculators out. Final ratio is 215/1 between the cable drum and the 3450 RPM motor. This gives aprox. 16 RPM of a 4 1/4 in diam. drum driven by the 3 hp motor at 3450 RPM. This should work out to 13.5 inches per wrap on the 4.25 in drum at 16 RPM equaling aprox 18 ft. per minute of lift. I need 10 ft. of lift, my calculations work out to 34 seconds to lift the 10 ft. with this setup. Did I do any of this right? Please coprrect my calculations if I'm wron, I'd rather know now than after the thing is hung in the building. Thanks, Frank.
