DC-Wind chain hoist

Rugged lifting equipment for onshore and offshore applications

DC-Wind chain hoist: A great hoist for the maintenance of wind turbines

Our DC-Wind Demag chain hoists are used for the maintenance and service of wind turbines all over the world. Both in onshore and offshore applications, DC-Wind units can overcome adverse conditions. They can safely and reliably transport loads and tools weighing up to 1,500 kg to heights of up to 180 metres.

Safe. By Demag.

Its high lifting speeds enable it to cut maintenance and downtimes to a minimum – making a valuable contribution towards its high availability and efficient operation. The DC-Wind chain hoist can be conveniently controlled and offers all the benefits of our DC chain hoist range as standard. Its high safety standard with a brake/coupling system and corrosion-protected brake with IP55 enclosure are just two of the benefits to improve workplace safety.

Fast installation, simple maintenance

Our DC chain hoist can be quickly installed and put into service with Plug & Lift plug connectors. Its durable components are designed for reliable operation also under harsh conditions. The gearbox and the slipping clutch are maintenance-free for up to 10 years and we select the right components to meet the needs of different climate zones.
