110v and 230v single phase electric chain hoists are only available from
A handful of manufacturers at a higher price than normal three phase options.units with one phase are usually sold into the hire market for use on building sites and residential areas where three phase power supply is not available.

There are several complications that can occur when choosing a single phase hoist, a couple things to consider are the distance the hoist will be from the supply and the supply itself, to startup and run these units require a lot of power and it is recommended that all single phase units have their own dedicated power supply in order to ensure that sufficient power is supplied to the machine. Further issues such as two speed operation are not an option with single phase, not are entertainment hoists with a double brake as the secondary brake requires a direct phase for power. Electric travel beam trollies are also not an option with most manufacturers, CM Lodestar being one of the few to have introduced this on some models.

We always recommend three phase hoists if the option is there, they are more cost effective, can run two speeds,provide less stress on your electricity supply and are usually quieter.
The above should be taken into consideration when purchasing a 110v or 239v single phase electric chain hoist
