Crane vs. a Hoist : Whats the difference?

October 20, 2017

A Crane is a complex device used for moving loads in in various directions. It can transport things both horizontally and vertically. In order to operate, a crane makes use of a variety of simple machines, including a hoist.

While a hoist by itself can only raise and lower objects on a vertical plane, it is the component used for that purpose as part of a crane's wider application. Hoists, as well as cranes, are typically used in a construction or industrial setting.

 

The AmeriCrane & Hoist Corp specializes in a variety of types of hoists and cranes to suit all of your construction and industrial needs.
