Why choose the SX hoist?

We are committed to helping you rise above the challenges of your every day business. The safety, reliability, and reduced maintenance of the Spacemaster SX wire rope hoist allows you to get the most out of your equipment.

Easy to Operate
Our innovative hoist design provides the best headroom in the industry while minimizing hook drift and maximizing end approaches. This means you get more floor coverage and easier operation of the equipment. Standard inverter controls on the trolley reduce load swing and minimize brake wear.

R&M offers load monitoring systems as standard with every wire rope hoist. The HoistMonitor and HoistWatch systems give you real information about your equipment use and service needs while preventing overloads to the crane.

At R&M, all our equipment is designed in-house, specifically for lifting applications. The innovative gear case design reduces stress on drum bearings, lowering the need for maintenance and extending the life of the equipment. Our unique rope drum design, with 40:1 drum to rope diameter and motor inside the drum, provides the least hook drift in the industry while improving motor cooling efficiency.

Why choose a QX wire rope crane package?

QX crane packages are a total solution for your material handling needs. Your components are optimized to give you the right equipment, right when you need it! We have utilized our nearly 90 years in the material handling business to carefully engineer these packages to be tailored to any application or facility. Each package is designed specifically to make the most of your space, bringing you the best in safety, reliability and flexibility.

Better Safety
Every QX wire rope crane package comes equipped with a HoistMonitor or Hoistwatch load monitoring system. This system prevents overloads, monitors the equipment usage, and provides helpful advanced service warnings to help you keep your equipment running safely and avoid costly downtime. Our 4-position hoisting limit includes an innovate phase reversal position which prevents the block from running into and damaging the hoist in the event of phase reversal.

Less Maintenance
Sealed dust-proof brakes on the motors are self-adjusting and impregnated with Kevlar for high-performance wear, designed for over a million cycles. Standard inverter control motions on the trolley and bridge safely slows the motor speed to zero before the brake sets. This speed ramp up and ramp down time reduces load swing and extends the life of the motor brake. R&M is committed to helping you rise above with less maintenance, less downtime, lower repair costs — and reduced cost over the lifetime of your hoist equipment.
