Load chains for manual and electric chain hoists
The manual chain hoist is the most economical way for lifting heavy loads. Manual chain hoists are used in construction, maintenance, and lifting applications.
Manual chain hoists are equipped with two chains:
Hand chain: a continuous chain which is looped around a wheel. The wheel allows pulling of the hand chain to drive the hoist.
Lifting chain: the lifting chain moves up and down when the hand chain is pulled.
