Item: Hoist - Hand Chain - Heavy Duty - Overload Protection - Capacity: 0.5 ton - Standard Lift: 20 feet
Applications: Used for lifting and pulling applications - Designed for low headroom applications - Provides maximum lift in confined spaces
Value Added Feature: Features an overload protection mechanism to prevent misuse and to reduce the risk of injuries - These hoists require 20% - 30% less effort than similar hoists - Ideal for frequent use
Description: The unique hand wheel design enables the hand chain to successfully feed directly into the wheel sprocket from many angles and directions. Thus, the operator can use the lifting hoist while standing to the side, or even above the load, without fear of jamming the chain. The hand chain hoists are outfitted with a load holding weather proof Weston Brake, and the gears are protected from contamination and debris. The hand and load chain are electro-zinc plated to provide a non-oily durable finish and the housing is powder coated against corrosion. All gears and shafts have maintenance free lubrication roller bearings. The safety latches on the hooks can easily be changed out, and the hoists can be quickly disassembled for fast and easy maintenance. The top hook rotates to accommodate the rotation of the hoist, while the lower hook is outfitted with a thrust bearing to allow easy rotation of the load while suspended. Lower block is included with multi-strand hoists.
Safety Standards: Triple tested to 150% of the hoist’s rating, and then the overload is set - Comes with a serial number specific test certificate - Housing bears a stainless steel riveted ID Tag displaying the capacity - Meets or exceeds the following safety standards: CE, AS 1418.2, ANSI B30.21 and ANSI B30.16
Includes: (1) one hoist
WARNING: Never exceed rated capacity!
The overload protection mechanism prevents the operator from overloading the hoist. When the hoist senses too much weight, it will not allow further pulling or hoisting. Lower the load, if lifting, or release the load, if pulling.
