You can buy 110v pendant controllers for less than the 12v one you posted. Even those are typically low amperage switches, so you would still need relays. $$$ :mad::mad: A drum switch is simpler/cheaper.

"Back in the day" (way before OSHA) I worked in a machine shop that had an overhead electric hoist. It had a drum switch mounted on the trolley. The switch had a rocker (see-saw) arm on it and a loop of light weight chain that hung down to operator height. The rocker had a centering spring so that the winch stopped when the operator let go of the chain.
