Q: Do the eme GEN II 1100CH and eme GEN II 2200CH Davit Cranes with the Chain Hoist break down into smaller pieces?

A: These models fold up into a compact package, with no disassembly required. The 3300CHCU (not a GEN II), due to its weight, is designed to have the Arm detach from the Davit top.

A: No, the eme GEN II 1100W Davit Crane does not break down. The Davit Arm remains attached to the Davit top.

A: The minimum assembled lifting height is 80 in./2.02 m for both.

Q: Why are the dimensions for the lifting height under the Chain Hoist approximate?

A: The dimensions are approximate because different models of Chain Hoists have different 'snugged-up' lengths.

Q: How can I increase the lifting height of the eme GEN II Davit Cranes?

A: Use a Custom Top Mount Socket (up to 60 in./1.52 m in height) or increase the length of the Davit Crane Arm.

Q: What type of Chain Hoists can be used with the eme GEN II Davit Cranes?

A: Electric or Manual Chain Hoists can be used with all of the eme GEN II Davit Cranes. Hoists must not have a rating greater than the rating of the Davit Cranes – (1,100 lbs./500 kg. to 2,200 lbs./1,000 kg.)

Q: Why would a Variable Radius Arm (VRA) be used?

A: A VRA would be used with an existing eme GEN II Davit Crane to lift UV Light Arrays for easy maintenance of this critical disinfecting equipment. It has the range of physical coverage of a costly overhead bridge crane, but with a cost of less than 30 percent of this piece of equipment.
