Construction Hoists & Elevators

Construction Hoists

Our standard construction hoists feature fully galvanized cars, galvanized enclosures and tower, manual controls and power cable. We have a philosophy of using high tech solutions and offering machines that are robust and durable enough to withstand the most arduous site conditions and the roughest of treatment. Our construction hoists offer a low cost of ownership, with a minimum of spares and consumables being required. Custom car sizes, door locations, and explosion proof packages are also available.

Transport Platforms - Typically transport platforms are similar in design to mast climbers. They are open-air and designed to be used exclusively by specially trained personnel.   Unique in design, they attach directly to the structure/building. 

Material Lifts - Material lifts are used to move people and material on a construction site quickly and efficiently. 

Refurbished Elevator Sales - Refurbished rack and pinion elevators (see refurbishment process) are a cost effective alternative to buying new equipment. McDonough Elevators can refurbish any elevator for permanent or temporary use, often saving customers up to 50% on the cost of new equipment. Additionally, lead time for delivery of a refurbished rack and pinion hoist is dramatically reduced, normally only four (4) to six (6) weeks for a complete refurbishment and modernization.
