Manual Chain Hoists

Manual Chain Hoists are a lower cost alternative and can be a practical choice in low headroom areas.  They can be attached to a trolley on an overhead crane or installed on a fixed point.  The capacity of a manual chain hoist can vary from just a few hundred pounds, up to a max of around 10 tons.

Below are a few examples of manual hoists available. See more manual hand chain hoists in our catalog.
