What are Buck Hoists?
At NWF Leasing we know Buck Hoists. So what is it? it is a temporary construction elevator that is built on the outside of the building or plant that is under construction or repair. Buckhoist’s are used to vertically lift heavy and bulky loads as well as personnel.
Buck hoist has many names such as temporary elevators, personnel hoist, construction elevator, or material hoist. these types of hoists are used on large scale multi-story construction projects, power plants, and other manufacturing and production facilities. The primary purpose of a buck hoist is to lift and carry personnel, materials, and equipment between ground level, middle and upper floors of a building.
Buck hoists are available in single or dual car configurations. The car or (cages) travel up an erected mast tower on the outside of the building. The mast tower is attached to the structure or building for stability. Buck hoists use a motorized rack-and-pinion operating system that allows for precise travel control between the tower sections.
