Portable and Versatile Lever Hoist
A lever hoist is an industrial tool used to lift and lower heavy loads without using heavy machinery. It is a hand-operated portable and versatile tool that is especially suitable for use in narrow work areas as well as to lift or lower load at different angles. This is a much sought-after alternative to chain blocks and chain hoists that can only lift loads vertically. We work with Kanazawa and Vital to source for the best lever hoist for your industrial requirements that are certified for use in many countries.
How does a lever hoist work?
A lever hoist comes with the lever (the handle) that is attached to a block that comprises an internal gear system responsible for the movement of the chain. To use the lever hoist, the user needs to move the lever up and down to power the gear system to move the load. Every lever hoist comes with a heavy-duty safety cap that holds on to the load, and a swivel at the top for the user to lift the load at a variety of angles. There is also a handwheel which can be turned to release or retract the chain at any desired length.
In every work setting, it is important to abide by work safety rules when using any equipment. In the case of the lever hoist, there is a specific working load limit according to the type of hoist used. The user must not exceed the working load limit as this can cause the chain to snap and may result in injury to other workers in the vicinity as well as the user himself. The working load limit is typically stated at the side of the hoist.
