  • Where the concrete type, material strength or condition are unknown or questionable, job site tests are needed

Superchute® Fishpoles

  • All our Hoists feature a removable Fish Pole to raise & lower the chute
  • The device is removed once the chutes are clipped to the hoist frame
  • A single fish pole can install chutes on any number of hoist frames provided they are of the same model



Superchute® Drum & Traction Winches

  • Superchute® Fishpoles are equipped with manual winches to manage the design loads and provide proper speed for chute installation
  • Manual winches require no external power source
  • All winches are chosen for their durability & ease-of-use

Traction winches are used on chute hoists with a capacity of 750 lb. or more.

Drum winches are used on chute hoists with a capacity of 650 lb. or less.

Motorize your Chute Hoist with our Superchute® Electric Fishpole Adapter.


The Electric Fishpole replaces manual winches & works with the following Fishpole models:

  • Eliminate chains hanging at an angle

Note: Not suitable for hoist models sc-350-w, sc-600-w, sc-300-cb, sc-605-cb & sc-905-cb due to height limitation of the booms

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.


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
