Stellar Industries releases the SI-30/40 Cable Hoist, the newest addition to the manufacturer’s line of demountable products.
Through innovative design processes, Stellar Industries has made numerous improvements to the standard cable hoist including hydraulic gear pumps, zinc-plated pins, improved cable routing, and decreased shipping weight to increase payload.
The SI-30/40 can handle containers ranging from 18 feet – 22 feet and has a lifting capacity of either 30,000 pounds or 40,000 pounds model based on either a single axle chassis or tandem axle chassis. When mounted to a single rear axle chassis, the SI-30/40 becomes an option for municipalities, as it offers improved maneuverability in close spaces.
Additionally, the SI-30/40 includes other key features; counterbalance valves to prevent cylinder movement in case of pressure loss along with enclosed reeving cylinder decreasing the exposure to damaging debris. The dump cylinder is mounted above and outside of frame rails for easier access and stability when dumping, bronze bushings were added in rollers and sheave for reduced friction operation and a two-part polyurethane enamel paint prior to assembly for complete component coverage.
“The SI-30/40 provides a flexible unit for the smaller hoist market by adjusting its capacity with a change in hydraulic pressures,” according to Tim Worman, Stellar Industries senior product manager. “To allow the unit to be installed on smaller single or tandem rear axle chassis. This allows the market to be able to satisfy two opportunities with one base unit.”
