Hoists Direct offers many different brands, capacities, lifts, and options for manual chain hoists. When selecting a manual hoist you need to determine the type required (hand chain or lever), capacity in tons, lift (length of chain), suspension (hook, geared trolley, and motorized trolley), hand chain length, lifting material (cable or chain) and beam size. Once these are determined, you can see which manufacturers meet you requirements. A hand chain hoist or chain fall is used for vertical lifting only. Lever hoists or come-alongs are used for horizontal pulling or for vertical lifting. Come alongs are also portable and used by cranking on the lever handle.
