Chain hoists are typically used to lift or lower heavy equipment and objects with a minimal level of manpower input and effort to get the job done.
They use a mechanical dual-pulley system linked by a chain. Chain hoists help reduce wear and tear on other equipment, reduce workforce needs, and maximize productivity, making them a great addition to any business' arsenal of equipment.
They can be used for a variety of purposes, including heavy lifting and moving bulky objects. Chain hoists are available in multiple configurations, making them useful for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Popular Questions About Our Chain Hoists
Below are some of the most popular questions about our chain hoists.
What Types Of Cain Hoists Are Available?
We have a number of different types, predominantly categorized by capacity. We have 1 ton, 2 ton and 3 ton options. We also have both manual and electric models.
What’s The Difference Between Manual & Electric Models
Manual hoists are manually operated by hand, so no power is required to lift loads. They are easy to move around, making them ideal for home, farm, car recovery, mining, and other industrial applications.
Electric hoists models lift or lower material with the assistance of an electric motor and controller. They offer fingertip control and typically have a higher lift or working load limit compared to manual hoists. Three-phase hoists are the most preferred as they draw much less current than a single-phase hoist, allowing the motor to run cooler and last longer.
Single and dual-phase electric hoists are also great, but their capacity is limited.
Do You Have 3 Phase Electric Models?
Yes. We have 3 phase electric models ranging from 1/4 ton to 5-ton lifting capacity, and with a height capacity of 20ft.
How High Can I Lift With Hoists?
The maximum lift height depends on the model, size of the load, and working load limit. Standard hoists typically lift items to a height of 20ft-30ft. If you want to go higher, additional lift heights can be customized to your request.
