Heavy Duty Range Griphoist

The powerful TIRFOR TU grip hoist is found wherever there is a need for lifting or pulling heavy loads, including construction sites, civil engineering, bridge builders, loggers, armed forces, forestry, fire & rescue operations, and many more industries. TIRFOR machines are quickly installed and placed into service to give continuous controlled operation in any position and under the most arduous conditions.

A Grip Hoist is a hand operated mechanical hoist that can move, stabilize or lift extremely heavy loads. It uses thick heavy gauge wire, shackles, round slings, snatch block, etc., and needs to be secured to a fixed substantial object.

A common emergency use of the Grip Hoist has been during rescues involving large vehicles and heavy machinery. Because this device can handle such heavy loads, the ability to move, lift or stabilize large heavy objects allows rescuers to increase their options during rescue operations.

The Grip Hoist is available in three versions - the TU-17, TU-28 and the TU-32. Each unit has different strength and capability ratings, depending on the users need:

  • The TU-17 is the lightest of the three units, weighing only 23 lbs. This is an ideal tool for arborists, parks maintenance staff and workers responsible for clearing paths, taking down and moving trees, moving boulders and rocks, and related work. It is useful for work in remote locations, such as for erecting towers and can be easily placed in a backpack for carrying/hiking in areas not accessible by vehicle. The TU-17 uses 5/16” wire rope with a breaking strength of 10,000 lbs. and is rated for 2,000 lbs. lifting and 1,500 lbs. man rated.

  • The TU-28 is our best selling model. This is considered by many as a flexible choice because it is strong, but not real heavy, weighing in at 42 lbs. The TU-28 uses 7/16” wire rope with a breaking strength of 20,000 lbs. and is rated for 4,000 lbs. lifting and 3,000 lbs. man rated.

  • The TU-32 is the largest of the three units. This unit is super strong and can move incredibly heavy loads. The TU-32 uses 5/8” wire rope with a breaking strength of 40,000 lbs. and is rated for 8,000 lbs. lifting and 6,000 lbs. man rated.
