Each 5 Ton GoHoist unit has four 1200lb auto-brake winches rigged with 3:1 pulleys.  Photo below shows rigging on 5 ton GoHoist is 33% more than on the 3 ton GoHoist.

The New 5 ton GoHoist Rigging.

We have shipped hundreds of the 5 ton GoHoist units. Now due to the current supply chain slow down we have redesigned the rigging on our 5 ton unit.  The hoist and hardware are the same as previous.  The only change is the winch capacity and rigging. Because of supply limits we are using the 1200lb auto brake winches with additional pulley blocks on the 5 ton hoists. The new rigging allows for a 33% decrease load on the winches. This allows the 1200lb winches to lift the same load as the 1800lb winches did with the original rigging.


We have load tested with safety factor and field tested the new design and the complete hoist units have easily passed all testing. 


Plus the new 5 ton GoHoist design has a lower cost that we are passing on to you.
