A scaffold hoist is an electric hoist which can be mounted onto the upright of a conventional scaffold pole. Scaffold hoists are an electric alternative to a gin wheel. The scaffold hoist or builders hoist is built into an extendible jib frame which when bolted to the scaffold pole allows the scaffold hoist to slew 180 degrees. Due to the jib design, this allows the operator to slew the scaffold hoist out over the scaffold edge and collect a load on the ground. Once raised up the scaffold hoist can then slew back over the scaffold to lower its load where the operator wants it. Scaffold hoists are most often used with scaffold hoist skips which are a mini skip designed to carry mortar and supplies on the scaffold hoist. The functionality of your scaffold hoist can be further increased by pairing it with additional rigging equipment like shackles, webslings, chain slings or wire rope slings.
