Lever hoists (also called pull lifts) are devices used to lift, pull and position heavy loads in all directions, including horizontally. Lever hoist is very similar to chain hoist but there is a big difference: chain hoist can only lift loads vertically.
Pulling hoists are lever operated hand winches designed to lift, pull and move heavy loads. Pulling hoists use wire rope for moving loads.
Wire rope pulling hoists are the preferred choice for frequent use in comparison to chain hoists which their chains are more susceptible to wear and tear over time.
