Do electric hoist/lift motors apply a constant force to the weight they are lifting? What would happen if the force translated from the motor torque was the same as the weight of the object at a position off the ground? In other words, the force pointing up is equal to the weight pointing down but the motor is still receiving current from the controller and trying to lift the object.
Thanks, just wondering
