Galbreath, manufacturer of hoists, container handlers, and trailers, has launched its new WT-1216/X and WT-2018/X work truck series cable hoists.

Combining toughness and durability in a more compact and lightweight package, the new models were designed to offer a lighter-duty option to Galbreath’s original 8-inch main frame single axle cable hoist. The hoists are a great option for landscapers, general contractors, and private waste haulers who need less power and easier maneuverability.

The WT-1216/X and WT-2018/X can transport loaded containers and equipment up to 20,000 pounds and 18 feet long. With a stout 6-inch main frame, the hoists feature electric over hydraulic controls using a wireless remote control, making it easier to “spot” containers much more efficiently and safely while monitoring low clearance and maneuvering through difficult-to-reach or tight metropolitan areas.

Engineered and manufactured in the United States and compatible with a variety of truck chassis, the new cable hoists are bolt-on ready and easily installed with no welding required. The hoists also come standard with externally mounted secondary manual controls, BOC (back of cab) mounted steel tank w/ dual sight/temp gauge, adjustable bolt-on rear apron, and split bumpers and dual 4-inch lift and winch cylinders.

The hoists are also tarp system ready, with a mounting platform that is compatible with Pioneer or other tarp brands.

The work truck series hoists are also customizable, with custom engineering layouts to ensure the best fit for each customer, as well as a host of options, including toolboxes, back-up cameras, fenders, expanded light packages, auxiliary front stops and a side-mount oil tank.

Safety features include an automatic spring loaded (pass over style) front safety lock, in-cab ¾-inch flashing LED hoist up warning light, back-up and hoist alarms and dual safety/maintenance props.
