For economy and dependability, the Budgit chain hoist is a tough hoist to beat. There are units that have been in there field over 50 years and are still in production. These hoists are built by CM right along with the Yale, and Shaw Box brands.

For over 60 years, Budgit Electric Chain Hoists have been designed and manufactured for tough jobs and made right here in the U.S.A.

Since 1935, Budgit has led the industry in innovation, quality and dependability. These compact, lightweight, economical hoists are built to withstand the rigors of heavy service and repeated lifting cycles. They are easy to service, require minimal maintenance and offer excellent headroom.

Budgit chain hoists come with two choices of load chain; roller and link.

  • Roller chain provides smoother, quieter operation for light to medium duty applications. Roller chain models are available only in hook suspension.
  • Link chain hoists are ideal for heavier service applications requiring repeated lifting cycles.

All Budgit 1 ton and 2 ton chain hoists are equipped with a heavy duty, positive acting, short-stroke DC rectified disc motor brake. The brake is rated at 150% torque to stop and hold the load.

In addition, all hoists are provided with a Weston-type mechanical load brake for load lowering control and as a backup to the hoist motor brake. A Budgit-Manguard overload device is also standard on all Budgit Electric Chain Hoists. The Budgit-Manguard protects the hoist, operator and supporting structure by preventing dangerous overloads.

A wide variety of trolleys are provided for both hook and lug suspended hoists. Trolleys are available in push, hand-geared and motor-driven versions. Hook-on trolleys are available in either push or hand-geared versions. Rigid Mount trolleys are available in push, hand-geared and motor-driven versions.

These chain hoists are available in a variety of controls to meet the specific need of your application. The standard control is single speed with options available for two speed and variable frequency.

Ergonomic Partners sales engineers have over 25 years experience applying the right Budgit chain hoist for your application.
