Why APPI:  Jeff Blumers, the facilities manager for Wisconsin Power and Light Co. in Sheboygan,Wisconsin, knew precisely what he needed in general purpose, portable hoist to assist him and his crew with their ongoing maintenance and equipment installation projects.

They were, 1)  One half ton capacity, hoist rated.  2)  A complete package that could be carried by one person.  3)  A minimum of 200 feet of working line on the drum.  4)  Easy installation in varied locations.   5)  Low maintenance requirements.  6)  115 VAC input power.

We were able to meet his requirements for performance with one of our HD2000 ac electric hoists and his need for portability by providing it with one of our “Contractor’s Packages”.  The combination will give the WP&L facility crew a very flexible tool that will help ensure they can finish their work in less time and work safer while doing so.
