Q3 The power specifications for the hoist seem rather high - why is this the case?

Firstly we are not electricians nor are we informed about your specific projects electrical installations - please consult with a qualified electrician for advice on installing your hoist.

As a guide however: the stated ratings on our website our the manufacturers recommendations for the hoists and are to do primarily with the operation of the motor in the hoist. On start up the motor will create a power spike - which when under full load will be just below the stated requirements. In our experiences these requirements do not need to be taken literally throughout your electrically installation as all models of the hoist will normally operate on a normal 13A three pin plug. You do need to ensure however that the hoist's power supply is taken from the correct type of breaker. A "C" or "D" class breaker should accommodate the start up spike of the motor.
