Balkancar Podem Cranes BCP hoists
We are the UK and Ireland stockist and suppliers of BCP hoists.we can supply wire rope hoists from 1t SWL to 50 tonnes. The range includes hoists for single girder cranes as well as double girder cranes. Standard headroom and low headroom hoists are also available.
Hoists for monorail cranes or single girder cranes are usually stock items. Crab units for double beam cranes especially, if replacing an old hoist, need to have the crab gauge checked. We can bespoke make them for you, and manufacturing time is usually in 8 week to suit your cranes crab gauge, or a little less if you can use the standard gauge of 1000 mm.
The hoist below needed so much money spending on it to return make it pass its Report of Thorough Examination, it became uneconomical to refurbish. It was actually cheaper to supply a new crab until with a specific gauge, to match what the crane was set at, than it was to seek old old expensive parts.
Below is the new hoist. We also painted the old beams RAL 1007 yellow, to complete the crane makeover.
