Manual Hoists

Manual hoists are devices that lift, lower, move, and pull heavy loads. They are commonly attached to or suspended from structures by hook or trolleys mounts, and are used in the transportation, construction, manufacturing, mining, and material handling industries,… Learn More

  • Manual Hoists

    Manual hoists transfer hand-exerted force either across a series of gears to multiply the force into one large enough to lift the designated load, or over a pulley, drum, or sheave to leverage the force into one strong enough to lift the load. This makes it possible for an operator to manage heavy loads. The manual force is usually applied using a hand chain, lever, or lever and ratchet, lifting the load by a hook attached to a chain, rope, or wire. Manual hoists are portable, do not have a motor, and do not require an external power source. Manual hoists include hand chain hoists, lever hoists, and ratchet puller hoists.

  • Hand Chain Hoists 

    Hand chain hoists transfer force that has been applied to a hand chain over a series of gears that multiply the force into one large enough to lift the load. Hand chain hoists typically have mechanical disk brakes that hold the load in place while the operator’s hands are released to make the next pull, secure the load once it has been lifted, and control the descent of load as it is lowered. Hand chain hoists are suitable for vertical lifting and lowering. They are used for a variety of construction, industrial, and small or home workshop applications.

  • Lever Hoists 

    Lever hoists transfer force that is applied to a lever over a series of gears that multiply the force into one large enough to lift or pull the load. Manual lever hoists typically have disk brakes that hold the load in place while the operator’s hands are released to make the next pull, secure the load once it has been lifted, and control the descent of load as it is lowered. Lever hoists can be operated on almost any angle and are suitable for vertical lifting and lowering, and for pulling loads. They are used for a variety of construction, industrial, and small or home workshop applications.

  • Ratchet Puller Hoists

    Ratchet puller hoists, also called come-alongs, transfer force that is applied to a lever ratchet across a pulley, sheave, drum, or spool to leverage it into a force strong enough to lift or pull the load. The ratchet acts as a brake to keep the wire or rope from unwinding under the load. Ratchet pullers can be operated on almost any angle and are suitable for vertical lifting and lowering, and for pulling loads. They are used in a variety of construction, industrial, and small or home workshop applications.

When selecting a manual hoist, consider the load capacity and lift, according to the specific application. Load capacity is the maximum weight a hoist can handle, expressed in pounds or tons. Lift is the maximum vertical distance the load hook can move a load, expressed in feet.
