Is Engine Hoist Selection Really As Simple As It Seems

Making difficult decisions in life is something you’ll encounter in any type of work. From administrative work to government and the medical field, difficult decisions are being made every day. What some people might not know is that the supply chain industry involves much decision making and the choices made here can be significantly influential. Take equipment and machinery selection, for instance. Some managers and inventory specialists will be tempted to select the items that save the most costs, but those decisions can potentially come back to haunt them when these cheaper items will inevitably falter. Read on below for a closer look at this in engine hoist selections.

There are many factors to consider when selecting engine hoists. One of the first things you must think about is at what capacity will you need your engine hoist. The average engine crane can lift up to one or two tons of heavy machinery, but there are items on the market that can handle machinery as heavy as 5 tons or more. Therefore if you are in need of an engine hoist, think hard about how much you really need this crane to hold on a daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly basis.

The next thing that needs to be considered in your selection is whether you should get a folding or non-folding engine crane. A folding crane makes sense for those who are more minimalist-minded. Folding cranes can save you a lot more space in the work area as you can simply fold it to take up less space when not in use. However, you are sacrificing some key features when you acquire a folding crane. These types of cranes and engine hoists do not typically have the same reach that non folding machinery has. They can typically telescope out a foot longer than a folding hoist can. This could mean the difference when it comes to reaching into a larger truck’s engine compartment.

In addition to having less reach, you must also be extra vigilant not to extend the boom out farther than the legs, lest you want to cause the entire hoist to flip. If you need any more information to help you decide which engine hoists suits your needs, contact our team today!
