Gday all.
A bit off the track but I know alot of you people are mechanics. Was wondering if anybody has heard of a hoist called HANMECSON.
The price is right and apparently has ISO standards. I am waiting to hear back for them. Haven't replied to my email.
I want to use it in my workshop so will be used 5 days a week every week all day.
Thanks

Hanmecson is a budget priced hoist produced in Korea and shipped via the US. I think that some assembly work is done in the US. Perhaps they now also ship directly to Australia.
ISO compliance means SFA in Australia when it comes to vehicle hoists.
Hanmecson also only state that the product is produced in an ISO compliant factory, not that the hoist itself is ISO compliant.

For your own safety and that of any one else using the hoist buy one that IS CERTIFIED to comply with Au/NZ standard 1418 part 9.
Do not take the suppliers word that it will comply with Au standards, insist on a copy of the certification.
Take advise from someone that knows, I sat on the engineering panel for AS1418/9 for 16 years.
There is a lot of second rate product on the market, mainly because certified compliance with the standard is not mandatory.

yes, particularly with the oh&s and workcover requirements nowdays, you need to make sure you have fully aus standard compliant gear, especially with any load lifting equiptment . You dont want to be held responsible for vicarious liability if some poor bastard gets hurt by it.
