The UH6001 Portable Entry & Retrieval Hoist System was first introduced to the industry as an easy-to-use hoist system to lift equipment.  However, because of its light weight and ease of assembly without tools, it was soon re-engineered for use as raising and lowering personnel.  The one-piece mast has a height of 78" (195 cm.) and a reach of 18" (45 cm.).  The base is capable of servicing up to a 36" (90 cm.) manhole and comes complete with 4 adjustable screw legs that sit flat on a 45 degree angle.  The base centre piece has 2 loop eyes to anchor rescue ropes.

This portable retrieval system is capable of one winch mount and one self-retracting lifeline (SRL) at any one time, or 2 of either one.  The UH6001 meets all OSHA and ANSI standards and regulations for confined space entry and retrieval equipment.  The system consists of:

  • UH6001/7 Fold-up Mast
  • UH6002 Fold-up Base
