Hand-Powered Hoists

A hoist is a simple machine used for lifting or moving a load. It can be powered either by hand or by a motor and may use a chain, wire, or rope, depending on its weight rating.

Hand-powered hoists are the simplest, lightest, and most affordable of all the hoists. Generally, there are two types available: a hand-chain hoist and a lever hoist. Lever hoists are often lighter and more complex than hand-chain hoists and are ideally suited for light and medium loads from ¼ ton up to 6 tons.

Manual Hoists Are Economical and Effective

While larger hoists and cranes are highly useful – and will carry whatever you need no matter the lifting weight – a lever hoist provides a simple way to significantly increase worker productivity without costing a fortune. Frequently found in maintenance and automotive shops, they’re also widely used in many industries, including:

  • Logging
  • Oil and mineral extraction
  • Manufacturing
  • Marine
  • Construction
  • Aerospace
  • Agricultural
  • Medical
  • Manufacturing

Lever Hoists

Lever hoists are incredibly lightweight. They’re often called toolbox hoists because they can be carried in a toolbox and hung on location as needed. One of the most common lever hoists is the come along, a popular cable hoist that’s frequently used to pull stumps or tighten fencing. They also are commonly used to lift heavier tools and equipment used on the job. They’re compact and easy to transport, but they require more muscle power for the higher load ratings.

A lever hoist uses a hand-crank lever that ratchets the drum and moves the load. This generally makes the device much faster than a hand-chain pull, depending on the gear ratio. Unlike pull-chain types, lever hoists can move items vertically, horizontally, or in any direction and typically have a 360-degree rotation on both the hoist hookup and the trolley, giving a massive range of movement options. They can also freewheel for rapid placement of the lifting chain.

Because they can be used horizontally, these portable hoists are frequently used as winches. They can be used to stretch items or apply tension as needed. They can easily be used one-handed, making them ideal for single-worker situations.
