Mobile Load Testing Station

Our load testing station can simulate the actual lifting of a load, making sure it is safe to use your hand operated lifting machines. Designed to pull against a hydraulic cylinder at a pre-determined value, the system is fail safe. In other words, when testing a 1 500 kg lever hoist, the machine is set to allow the lever hoist to be pulled against the cylinder at 1 875 kg allowing you an accurate dynamic brake-and-lift test as required by SABS 1594 and 1636.

With a stroke of 1 000 mm the lifting machine is thoroughly tested without applying any static pull which happens in the majority of cases. This machine is also capable of testing up to 6 m slings in-line and 10 m slings doubled up. The ability to perform a static test allows for the safe load testing of all lifting tackle such as slings, shackles, snatch blocks, eye bolts etc.
