The mounting brackets on this hoist will fit/support it from a 1-7/8" diameter pipe. There are no additional provisions for mounting it to a ceiling track.

This electric hoist features an auto stop with brake when electric power is lost. This will ensure that the load stays secure and doesn't drop to the floor when the power goes out.

Question

Is this hoist's capacity due to the strength of the cable or due to the strength of the motor? What if a thicker cable was attached?

This electric hoist features 220 lb. single line and 440 lb. double line capacities. Changing the cable size/diameter is not recommended and will void the manufacturer's warranty.

This electric hoist can be used in a double line application to hoist up to 440 lbs. The pulley block that's included is attached to the hoist cable by opening the body and then threading the cable through it and locking the body closed. Then the main/bottom hook is attached to the hole in the hoist frame above the cable spool. The pulley block/hook is attached to the load that's lifted. This increases the lifting capacity to 440 lbs. while reducing the height the hoist can lift to 18'.

As long as it is done safely and you do not exceed the limits of the hoist, you can use pulleys and sheaves.
