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.
Cable hand pullers are designed to lift, tension or pull heavy loads. They are easy to use in any length, angle or direction of pull or lift. Cable hand pullers are lever operated and use wire rope to maneuver loads.
Lever hoists are designed for pulling, tightening, stretching or positioning loads. Lever operated hoists are sometimes called come along, puller or pull lifts.
Lever chain hoist is similar to manual chain hoist except the hand chain wheel is replaced by a lever. There is also another big difference: manual chain hoist can only lift loads vertically but lever chain hoist can move loads in all directions, including horizontally.
The pneumatic pulling hoist (or pneumatic Tirfor) is particularly suitable for operating on construction sites and in industries where there is a danger of explosions or in industries already provided with compressed air facilities.
