UK Balkancar Podem (BCP) Gantry Hoists and Cranes.

AG Cranes are proud to be the UK and Ireland sole BCP distributors. BCP, are the worlds largest hoist producers, totaling over 2 millions hoist sales since the company was founded originally to supply the Soviet block countries.

These days the company produces almost 6000 rope and chain hoist units per year in sunny Bulgaria and exports to over 60 countries on 6 continents.

AG Cranes Ltd are based in The Midlands of England, have been chosen to stock and distribute Balkancarpodem hoists, cranes and crane end carriages throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Hoists in RAL 5015, and end carriages are currently stocked up to 10t SWL. The electric 415 volt wire rope hoists are 2 speed lifting and 2 speed cross travel. The hoists can include a mains contactor as well as hoist and cross travel contactors. The hoist panels use only quality Telemecanique/Schneider parts. The hoist brake is conical.

Wire rope hoists have the advantage of being available in all the usual safe working loads from 1 to 50 tonnes as well as 4t SWL and 6.3t SWL, to gain our distributors an advantage when preparing a crane quotation.

In addition the 5t SWL hoist is in fact a higher duty 6.3t hoist that is de-rated giving it a 3m duty for longer life. Standard flange widths open up to 300mm.
