Power drive for push-type hoists and under-hung cranes

 

Tractor Drives deliver greater productivity with existing push type under-hung crane bridges or push-type monorail hoists by offering motorized travel.  Designed for capacities up to 5 tons, these Tractor Drives are easy to install without removing or disturbing existing equipment.

 

For under-hung crane bridges the tractor is designed to accommodate any make of crane on various tracks.  Twin tractor units can be used to convert push-type cranes to motorized drive.  The twin tractor drives are wired into a single control panel located on one of the tractors to provide simultaneous operation.

 

For monorail trolley suspended hoists, the single, powerful motorized tractor provides fast horizontal travel while minimizing worker fatigue.  A squirrel cage electric motor and heavy duty worm gear reducer drives a urethane drive wheel.  The drive wheel engages the underside of the track, providing positive travel.

 

Units are available for a variety of capacities, speeds and runway beams.  Units are available with standard controls for single or dual operation, without controls or with customized controls.  Other options include two-speed, variable speed, soft starts, motor brakes, various voltages, and control options.
