St. Paul, Minn. (March 7, 2017) – Ergodyne today introduced a host of new and improved hoist buckets to its ARSENAL® Gear Storage Line. The seven new hoist buckets include five models made of gray canvas and two others made of polyester. Two detachable polyester safety tops (5937, 5938) are available to secure the contents inside of the buckets.
“Our new hoist buckets have improved design, materials, and durability – all at a reduced cost,” said Brent Velenchenko, product specialist, Ergodyne. “They come in three different sizes with different connections on top of the handle, making them valuable for jobsites.”
Five of the new hoist bucket models – (5930, 5935, 5940, 5945, 5960) – are made of 24-ounce gray canvas with synthetic leather bottoms. The gray canvas is abrasion-resistant, looks cleaner and lasts longer on the job than standard white/beige canvas. The synthetic leather bottoms are durable and can withstand the harshest environments.
The other two new models (5970 and 5975) are made of lightweight polyester rather than canvas. Convenient nickel-plated Storm Drains™ allow liquids to drain and air to circulate in all of the new hoist bucket models.
Safety is the name of the game and these heavy-duty buckets can safely hoist up to 100 pounds (5970, 5975) and 150 pounds (5930, 5935, 5940, 5945, 5960) and are third-party certified statically to a 5:1 safety factor. Full features and benefits can be found below.
“Bringing tools safely to heights has never been more critical,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. “Worksites need buckets that look professional and act productive.”
