Performance and Testing

The hoist is tried and tested to include a Minimum Breaking Load of 4x the WLL.

William Hackett have tested the load chain anchor/end stop to at least 2.5x the WLL with no restriction of either the brake or gears.

Additionally, all hoists are 100% proof tested at 1.5x the Working Load Limit.
