Lever operated hoists are sometimes referred to as "come-a-long" or "pullers".   They are used for pulling, stretching, tightening or positioning loads.  They also have the ability to be used as a hoist.

The lever hoist design is similar to that of a hand chain hoist.  Instead of using hand chain to move a load, the hand chain wheel is replaced with a lever or handle.  Reciprocating operator movement of the lever lifts / lowers the low in small increments.  Standard lifts are 10 ft, 15 ft., and 20 ft. Longer heights of lifts are available on special order, please let our team know when ordering.

Lever chain hoists have many in-plant uses and are heavily used in construction, utilities, lumber, railroad, mining, offshore and shipyard industries.

Some typical applications are:

  • Positioning machinery
  • Pulling pipe
  • Lifting doors
  • Pulling grating
  • Pulling plates together
  • Tensioning cable
  • Straightening poles or rails
  • Holding air ducts
