Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I perform a hook inspection?

In order to ensure your safety, the ASME requires hooks to be periodically inspected once a month. If a professional recommends even more often, then this supersedes the periodic monthly inspection.

What do I do if my hoist doesn’t work?

Hoist Zone offers support Monday — Friday 6:00 AM — 3:00 PM EST. Contact our service team by phone (574) 742-1185 or email us at info@hoistzone.com

What is Variable Speed?

Variable Speed gives you the power to choose the lifting speed of your hoist with just the twist of a knob on your pendant.
