Manual Hoists are useful in areas that don't have electrical power, for use with light loads or for infrequent lifts. For an economical solution, there are two main types of manual hoists:
- Hand Chain Hoists
- Ratchet Lever Hoists
Available in rated loads from 1/2 ton to 20 tons, these hoists are lightweight, durable, low headroom friendly and easy to rig. Available with or without trolley mounted suspension.
Ratchet Lever Hoists go a step father in providing ease of operator use. A variety of lift heights and rated capacities are available. Features include handle stops and load brakes for added safety.
