Chain Binder Type Transformer Gins
Transformer Gins
CHAIN BINDER TYPE TRANSFORMER GINS
A versatile tool for hoisting distribution transformers and apparatus up the structure. The standard base unit is for mounting on clear pole sections and the 5" extended base model allows mounting to bridge up to 4" x 5" crossarms. A wheel tightener and 36" chain is a part of each unit. Both models have 2000 pound maximum ratings, including hand pull force. With a single hoist line through a pulley on the gin and a sheave near the base of the structure, the lift load is 900 pounds (lift load plus the pull load equals the capacity). Using 4-4 blocks, the lift load can be 1,400 pounds. A swivelhook block should always be used in the eye of the gin, and a sheave or a capstan near the bottom of the structure should be used to thread the handline through. Gins are not intended for applications involving side pull on the hoist line, or with the lift load in a tagged out position. That is, the load line should be parallel to the gin pole. Pole length: 26 inches.

Swivel-Top Gin
Same application as Transformer Gin, but the top eye casting can be swiveled to bypass secondary lines when necessary. The cap is not intended to swivel while under load. This gin has identical load ratings to gins above. It has a 48" Epoxiglas* mast and with two wheel tighteners and 36" chain units.

Strap Type Transformer Gins
Strap Transformer Gins

STRAP-TYPE TRANSFORMER GINS
With a strap-type ratchet-action mounting mechanism rather than a chain binder, these otherwise are the same as chain-type gins. With 10,000-lb. rated tensile strength, 2"-wide polyester strap comes in 44" length to fit most structures. Wide handle opening on rapid-action ratchet permits easy operation, even with rubber gloves and leather protectors. Both models have a 2,000-lb. maximum rating, including load and fall-line pull. When calculating load capacities, allow 10 percent for friction in rope pulleys. Then, for example, using two double-sheave *blocks, the maximum load that can be lifted would be 1,400 lb. Or, using a *single sheave, the maximum lift load would be 900 lb. Gins are not intended for applications involving side pull on the hoist line or with the lift load in a tagged-out position. That is, the load line should be parallel to the gin pole.

Crossarm Gin
Crossarm Gin
CROSSARM GIN
Yoke casting fits over distribution crossarms, so this Crossarm Gin can be used with rope blocks or handline to lift conductors from their insulators. A removable cadmium-plated steel pin provides adjustment for crossarm from 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" up to 4-3/4" x 5-3/4". Convertible model fits up to 6" x 6" crossarm. At a 30° maximum angle from vertical, 44" gin has rated working load including pull force of 750 lb.; 56" gin, 500 lb. Gins are not intended for applications involving side pull on either hoist line or load line. Lines to be within 5° of vertical.

Multi-Duty Gin
Multi-Duty Gin

The Multi-Duty Gin clamps at the top of the pole to lift heavy equipment or where ridge pins or other obstruction prohibit, the Gin can be mounted lower on the pole without changing the mounting bracket. The sturdy 4" x 4" Epoxiglas® beam gives the unit a 2000 pound load rating. With the beam removed, the mounting bracket can be used by itself as a gin for hanging transformers . . . maximum rating of the gin bracket is 2500 pounds.
The gin beam can be rotated in a half circle, swinging the load away from underbuild obstructions. Rocker-action of the beam, up to 60°, controls distance of the load from the pole.

Insulated Gin Pole / Cargo Boom
Insulated Gin Pole / Cargo Boom

These two load handling tools, both built around 4" x 4" Epoxiglas"" have many interchangeable parts for heavy duty applications. The Insulated Gin Pole is equipped with three chain tighteners which can be mounted to the pole to give lifting capacities of 5000 pounds. The top casting is fitted with two clevises for convenience in loading. Placing a pole clamp in the swivel lug, allows use of wire tong for stabilizing the gin. The Cargo Gin is rated at 1000 pound capacity. The center casting can be adjusted to three possible positions for guy loading the tool. The base mounting is hinged to permit pivoting of the tool from horizontal upward 90° to vertical and will also swivel a full 180°, depending upon the proximity to the structure. The casting at the top is the same as on the Insulated Gin Pole.

Swivel Boom - Heavy Duty
Heavy Duty Swivel Boom

The Heavy Duty Swivel Boom assembly is used on EHV to swing an insulator cradle and insulator into the structure for repair. The 4" x 4" Epoxiglas® horizontal boom, coupled with the 3" round Epoxiglas mast, is designed for 1000 pounds capacity. The rigging of this unit is shown in the photo below, and requires a link stick and hoisting device in a diagonal position. The adjustable clamp on the square boom, can be adjusted to three different positions for guy loading. In addition, the casting on the end of the boom is fitted with two clevises for guy loading the tool. The illustration at right shows the Swivel Boom on a pole mounted configuration; including the two chain tighteners. Also available with four tower mounting brackets to fit tow ers up to 6" to 6" angle legs.

The medium duty Swivel Boom assembly is used on trans mission structures to lift and move the insulator cradle and insulators into a convenient work position on the structure. The 3" round Epoxiglas horizontal boom and vertical mast are designed for 500 pound ratings when used in a steel tower configuration and 600 pound rating for wood pole assembly. An insulated link stick and a hoist are used in a diagonal position to lift the cradle full of insulators clear of the deadend strain poles and other obstructions. For tower use, three boom support poles should be added in a tripod configuration as shown in the illustration at left below.
