This hoist is designed for lifting. It is not designed to be mounted upside down. Doing so would void the warranty and could create a dangerous situation.

I would say no as you would have no way of winding the cable correctly and crossing cables causes fraying under load.

Question

Does the motor have a higher duty cycle if lifting a light load?

I would like to know if this hoist can be run at a higher duty cycle if it is lifting a very light load (30lbs). For example, could it be run for a few hours with a lifting time of about 5 seconds and 10 seconds rest?

This electric hoist has a 20% duty cycle regardless of the weight of the load(max capacities of 220 lbs./single line and 440 lbs./double line).

Yes, duty cycle actually tells your the motor will heat up and kick out the thermal safety switch at or about 20% of ten minutes while lifting a maximum load. So, the amount of work the hoist does generates heat, the lighter the load the lower the heat put out by the motor windings. Also, it the ambient temperature is high or low that will affect the length of time you can operate within the motors thermal safety range also.

Yes, it is possible to extend the winch remote in that manner. Keep in mind that doing so will void the warranty of the unit.

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.
