Lever chain hoists are used to raise and lower heavy loads without the support of additional equipment. Lever hoists are typically considered to be any small and portable lifting device that requires manual operation to lift and lower loads. Different from a chain block hoist's capability of only vertically lifting items, hand-operated lever hoists have the ability to lift items horizontally, as well. Due to their design, lever chain hoists are very useful in tensioning applications. At Crane Depot, we offer a wide assortment of lever hoists that are used in a variety of industries, including construction and auto repair shops.
