Often referred to in the industry as ratchet hoists, lever chain hoists have been designed to move loads both vertically and horizontally depending on your needs. With their usual compact design, many of these lever hoists can be found in maintenance tool boxes. Because of their portability and require very little set-up, lever hoists are a perfect option for maintenance and construction work.
Lever Hoist capacities can range from ¼ to 9 ton, and even larger in some instances.
Some smaller lever hoists can even come with optional carrying cases that can slip on your belt.
