Features of chain hoists
Different types of chain hoist lifts have different features. The pneumatic and electrical lifts have various control panels with them. The hand chain hoists are equipped with two chains, a hand chain and a lift chain. They can lift between a quarter ton and 50 tons, while many of the level pullers can lift between a quarter ton and nine tons or more.
How chain hoists work
While the method of lift for the hoist – manual, pneumatic, and electric – might vary, the basic concept of how the system works is the same. It will use the gears and wheels in the hoist to multiply the force and make lifting and lowering even very heavy loads nice and easy. With an electric or pneumatic hoist, you will use the controls on the machine to lift the load. With a manual chain hoist, you will find two different options – level pullers and hand chain hoists. The lever pullers, or ratchet hoists, can lift and pull items during the rigging process. Hand chain hoists are a good option for those who are on a budget and who still need to lift heavy loads.
