New Products Safe lifting

Remote-controlled crane hooks


Working with Ludwig System GmbH & Co. KG, OTH Pioneer Rigging has developed an alternative to traditional lifting hooks that helps quicken the rigging process while mitigating risk to workers. The opening mechanism is triggered by radio remote control with a 200-foot range. An individual hook has a working load limit of 4,400 pounds, while one XL hook is rated for 11,600 pounds. Hooks are compatible with all attachments under vertical, basket or choker setups.
