Worm Drive Hoists – Their Functionality is Impressive

Worm drive hoists offer noteworthy features, functions, and benefits, including some that other hoists lack.  Worm drive hoists:

  • easily turn the gear, but won’t allow the gear to turn the worm
  • sustain long lifts without overheating and premature failure
  • deliver faster lifting speeds without accumulating excessive heat
  • offer high-speed reduction in minimal spaces
  • deliver low maintenance due to fewer moving parts
  • generate safe lifting without requiring controls or high-maintenance mechanisms
  • self lock, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications
  • offer minimal noise, low vibration, and excellent shock-absorption


Our in-house manufactured Aerosafe worm-drive hoists are available in manual as well as pneumaticpowered options.  One thousand of our Aerosafe models are in use around the world.  Our Aerosafe worm drive hoists are used for the installation and removal of engines and landing gear for a wide range of aircraft models for Airbus and Boeing and almost all major airlines, worldwide.
