Manual Hoists & Pullers
Manual hoists and pullers are hand-operated lifting mechanisms without electrical power or air connections that move and position loads. They have simple, lightweight designs without wiring or motors, which makes them easier to maintain, transport, and set up than electric and air hoists. Hand-powered hoists are suitable for temporary, infrequent, and short-distance lifting applications. Manual chain hoists have hand chains that control lifting and lowering of heavy loads. Trolley-mounted manual chain hoists move side to side on beams and rails to transport hoisted loads. Manual lever hoists are ratcheting devices that use chains to lift, lower, or pull heavy loads. Manual cable and rope hoists are ratcheting devices that can lift and pull loads from any direction.
