Spacemaster® SX Electric
Wire Rope Hoists

The Spacemaster® SX represents a revolutionary new generation of exceptionally reliable electric wire rope hoists, featuring advanced technology and cutting-edge performance from R&M Hoist.

R&M Normal Headroom Hoist      R&M Double Girder Hoist Trolley

An innovative design that includes a large drum diameter gives the R&M Spacemaster® SX hoists the lowest headrooms and best wheel loads in the industry, while providing near true vertical lift with single reeved hoists, plus exceptional hook approaches and heights of lift. Unique features include low maintenance, sealed brakes; a two-speed hoist motor; and trolley inverter control. The standard hoist nameplate will carry a CSA c/us rating as well as a NEMA 3R rating for the electrical enclosures.

Spacemaster® SX hoists are designed to meet and exceed either ASME H3 or ASME H4 duty (FEM 1Am, 2m or 3m) ratings and provide the ultimate in easy load handling, safe operation and lasting, trouble-free performance.

Standard configurations include normal headroom, low headroom and double girder trolley designs. Hoists in short ton ratings (ASME) or metric tonne ratings (FEM) meet a wide variety of application requirements:

  • 2 - 80 ton capacities.
  • Lifts from 13ft to 320ft and beyond.
  • Lift speeds 10/1.5 - 62/10 fpm (3/0.5 - 19/3 m/min).
  • 208, 230, 460, 575/3/60 or 380/3/50 power supply.
  • Single-reeved or double-reeved.

Ease of Operation

Large-diameter hoist drum means easy positioning, closer approaches.

The large rope drum diameter provides near true vertical lift with a single reeved hoist — only 1/8” of drift per foot of lift. The result is exceptionally smooth movement and fast load positioning. This innovative design also means a shorter frame length, allowing closer end approaches.

Hoist and Trolley Motors Designed for Space Savings and Productivity

The standard two-speed hoist motors (6:1 ratio), designed specifically for hoisting applications, offer high starting torque and ensure precise and reliable load handling. Motors are class F insulated, 30 minute rated (60% effective duty), thermally protected and totally enclosed. Inverter control is available as an option. The standard trolley inverter control offers two speed or 2-step infinitely variable speed control for smooth acceleration and deceleration, minimal load swing, fast, efficient handling and accurate load placement. Trolley bumpers are standard.

Our Standard Safety Features Are Unmatched by the Competition

An electromechanical weight overload limit switch prevents the lifting of loads that are in excess of 110% of the rated capacity. The 4-position hoist limit switch includes a phase mismatch protection circuit that prevents the block from running up and damaging the hoist in the event of a phase reversal.

Low Maintenance Brake Means Long-Term Value

Sealed brakes on the trolley and hoist motors require little adjustment for over a million cycles.

Savings In New Construction

R&M = Headroom Advantages

  • Unmatched clearances - The floor area under your new crane can now be used more efficiently. Better hook to wall dimensions (A) compared to the competition.
  • Lower roof heights / maximum lifting heights - Your new building design can be smaller and more functional giving you savings in initial construction. Better hook to ceiling dimensions (H) compared to the competition.
  • Lower operating costs - Continual savings in heating and/or air conditioning expenses over the lifetime of your building.
  • Maximum flexibility - Factory layout and material flow planning is optimized.
