Superchute® Reeved Lifting Bar for Motorized Fishpole incorporates a pulley and is used when:

  • More than 1000 lb. of chute will be lifted using winch model PC3-1000
  • More than 1500 lb. of chute will be lifted using winch model PC3-1500

 

The SC-1500-bd (Bolt Down Frame) & SC-2000-cb (Hoister) models can lift more than 1000 lb. of chute.
Note: The chute lifting speed will be half as fast when this kit is used. However the pulley creates a mechanical advantage which compensates for the load limit of the winch.

Superchute® Locking Pins

Locking pins are used to set up your Hoist.
Note: Each hoist model uses it’s own pin size.

Installation

Taller chute systems can be assembled in piggyback fashion where the chute load is shared over several frames. Use a Superchute® Fishpole or a crane to raise the length of chute, mate it to the length below and chain it to the support frame.

Piggyback frames every few floors to achieve a maximum chute height of 200 ft. Piggybacking allows the chute to be lengthened quickly without disturbing lengths of chute that are already suspended from levels below. As building levels are added additional frames and chute lengths can be added. Contact Superchute®  if you need to go higher than 200 ft.

 

Reasons why a single Superchute® support frame cannot be used:

  • The chute weight exceeds the working load limit of the frame
  • The building is new, under construction & not yet topped out
  • The structural strength of the building is inadequate for a single suspension
