Hoist UK offer a range of manual crane hoists which are suitable for a variety of lifting requirements, particularly construction and maintenance applications.
A manual chain hoist can be a preferred option for a number of applications, including where a permanent installation for infrequent use is required; a temporary installation for erection or maintenance purposes is required; a precision location of the load is required or a suitable power supply is not readily available.
The hand chain block tends to be more favoured for applications where there are wither long intervals between use or frequent changes of use, which calls for particular attention to be paid during the in-service inspections procedures to ensure that no significant damage or deterioration has occurred since the equipment was last used,
It's also important to note that manual chain hoists are only designed for hoisting and lowering loads, and not for pulling applications. For pulling a
Manual Lever Hoist or Manual Lever Winch would be more suitable.
Our manual crane hoists are configurable with a range of trolleys. As an example, our VHR manual chain hoist can be configured with:
The push travel trolley allows for horizontal movement under load.
The low headroom push travel trolley facilitates horizontal movement within a short headroom working environment.
For bigger loads a geared travel trolley can be used to provide horizontal movement.
The low headroom geared travel trolley provides horizontal movement for heavier loads in a low headroom environment.
