Counterweight Assist Hoist

Thern Stage Equipment’s counterweight assist hoist is a motorized alternative to traditional, manually operated counterweight rigging sets that must be adjusted every time the load changes.

Product Description

Our motorized counterweight assist hoist securely lifts a stage batten loaded with up to 3,000 lbs of lighting, sound, scenery, or curtains without moving a single counterweight brick (it does require 1,500 lbs of counterweight loaded in the arbor). The unit contains a quick mounting plate that makes installation simple and easy.

Made to last, our components are comprised of durable, heavy-duty materials. We guarantee consistent service life for your Thern Stage Equipment counterweight assist hoist by offering a two-year limited warranty to make sure that you’re 100% satisfied.
