Spider debuts battery-powered hoist

By Lindsey Anderson22 September 2022

BrandSafway’s Spider division has debuted an electric hoist, the SC1000 Relevation. Powered by a portable Lithium-Ion battery, the Relevation is the only UL-Listed, battery-powered traction hoist on the market, according to the company.

Based on the Spider SC1000 hoist platform, the SC1000 Relevation’s battery has enough power for three hours of total travel time (up and down combined) at its rated 1,000-pound load capacity. A five-amp wall charger recharges the battery to full capacity in less than eight hours. The battery is IP-64 rated and has been tested and approved for operation at temperatures from -4 to 140 °F (-20 to 60 °C), the company said.

“The SC1000 Relevation frees customers from the power constraints on their jobsites and allows them to work independent of any site power problems or challenges,” the company said in a statement. “These include: No site power available, requiring a rental generator/compressor to power a swing stage; No connection to site power ready, requiring an electrician and delay; Low voltage and fluctuating power supply, leading to overheating of the hoist, intermittent operation and lost productivity; Troubleshooting visits to a jobsite, or delivery of boost transformers, or;  Damaged power cables, and lost time coiling and storing between shifts.”
