Cable Hoist Elevators

Cable Hoist Elevators

The light, easy to use electric Cable Hoist HyTile Elevator can be operated by one man or a gang. It can lift up to 15 tiles per load, is powered by a 3/4H.P. electric motor and has a 12 volt control system.

Cable Hoists come in four standard lengths:
CA401RR - One Section Cable Hoist - 16ft (4.8m) total length
CA402RRF - Two Section Cable Hoist - 28ft (8.5m) total length - (fold at 16ft, 4.87m)
CA403RRF - Three Section Cable Hoist - 40ft (12.2m) total length
CA404RRF - Four Section Cable Hoist - 52ft (15.8m) total length
CA044 - 1 inch Buffer (Board, for lifting arms)
CA045 - 1.5 inch Buffer (not bored, for trolley)

Tiles are placed on the trolley at the base of the unit. When the start button is pressed the trolley takes the tiles to the upper end of the machine where they are automatically lifted from the trolley and held while they trolley returns to the base unit. The trolley can be stopped at any point.

Until the tiles are removed from the lifting arms at the top of the machine, no further tiles can be transported to the top, thus allowing the tiler to work at the speed of his choice.

A two section Cable Hoist consists of a 4ft (1.2m) base unit weighing 90kg, plus a 12ft (3.6m) middle section weighing 15kgs, and a 12ft (3.6m) top section with an adjustable Bend weighing 28kg (133kg total unit).

A three section Cable Hoist comes with wire rope for both a two section and three section setup - cost effective to buy three section if that option will be required for customer in the future.

The adjustable Bend allows the top 4ft (1.2m) of the unit to bend to an angle of up to 45 degrees, allowing for easier, safer tile removal and less back strain.

Each Cable Hoist can be lengthened with the addition of extra 6ft (2.4m) or 12ft (3.6m) sections.

A hand-rail around the base of the cable hoist makes unloading your hoist from your trailer or truck much easier.

Assembly time on site is approximately 5 minutes for one man.

Rapid Return
With use of inverter technology we have developed a Cable Hoist that can speed up the loading process by delivering the trolley back to the base at over two times the speed it went up at. This function can be turned off when using your hoist for strip and re-tile.

Using your hoist as a folding machine makes it very quick and easy to set up - just unfold, ensure the wire rope is around the pulleys, and away you go!

Loading Rate
The number of tiles delivered to the roof by a standard 28ft Cable Hoist varies between 1,080 per hour (6 tiles per lift) and 2,160 (12 tiles per lift). When used in Rapid Return mode the Cable Hoist can deliver up to 2,800 tiles per hour.

Stripping A Roof
This unit can be used with equal ease to remove old tiles from the roof.

Belt Elevators

Belt Elevators

HyTile Folding Belt Elevator is available in both petrol and electric models, and has a fully adjustable bend. It comes in 4 standard lengths.

22ft (6.7m) total length (folding at 11ft / 3.35m)

32ft (9.7m) total length (folding at 16ft / 4.85m)

For those hard to reach jobs, elevators can be increased in length by inserting extra 1.8m or 2.3m sections.

The Bend if factory fitted five feet from the top end of the elevator. This allows the elevator to extend up to the roof, and removing tiles from the elevator becomes safer and easier.

Tiles are conveyed on a heavy duty 6 inch wide (150mm) belt. If tiles have not been taken off at the top, an auto-stop lever brings the elevator to a halt to prevent tiles falling off the top end of the elevator.

Removable lifting handles on the base make it much easier to manouvre your Elevator on site.

Because the unit can be folded, the belt does not have to be taken off when the job has been completed. Just remove the motor mounting cradle, release the folding catch, fold the Elevator back on itself and drop in on your roof rack.

The motor is cradle mounted and can be removed in seconds for transportation.

Assembly and dismantling of either model only takes a couple of minutes.

Loading Rate
Belt Elevators can deliver over 3,500 tiles to the roof per hour with 4 tiles per cleat, or 5,000 to the roof per hour with 6 tiles per cleat. However, the usual loading rate, even for large gangs, is around 2,500 tiles per hour.
