This particular UCL Advanced Series Five-Piece Hoist System is designed for your larger vault and tank entry applications. The extra large 97 inch wide leg span allows quick set-up on some pretty big manhole and confined space entry/retrieval applications. This is way beyond the capacity of even the largest Confined Space Tripods!
Like all of the DBI Advanced Confined Space Retrieval devices, this unit is constructed of lightweight materials, including high-strength aluminum. Most pieces have been powder coated for exceptional durability and long lasting sharp looks. The use of detent pins throughout means easy assembly without tools, and compact storage on your truck or the optional Advanced Equipment Cart.
The instruction manual is available below, and details the wide variety of adjustments and capacities of this remarkable device. Aside from the light weight and portability, one thing that stands out for us is the ability of the Davit Arm to pivot. What this does for the ease of rescue on the job can not be overstated. If you have used a tripod, or even a fixed overhead anchor point for retrieval, then you should be able to appreciate the convenience of being able to pivot the worker or equipment from over the hole. And with very little effort as the plastic lined sleeves move smoothly, with very little friction.
