are mechanical devices that utilize internal gears and a handle to provide
leverage to raise and lower loads.
Watch our video or "Read More" for more information on the operation and
features of Tyler Tool Lever Hoists.
At E-Rigging.com, we carry the Tyler Tool brand of lever hoists. We offer both
Regular and Compact Tyler Tool lever hoists.
These hoists are made of powder coated formed steel outer plates, forged and
machined gears, grade 80 alloy load chain and drop forged steel swivel load
hooks with latches.The hoists come with a sturdy handle, which is fitted with
a comfortable rubber grip.
They consist of one drop forged hook fitted to the hoist body and another
fitted to the end of the lifting chain.
A heavy duty switch dictates whether the hoist can raise or lower a load.
The switch can also be fixed to a neutral position, enabling the operator to
free spool the chain to the desired length needed for the application.
First, make sure that the directional switch is in the neutral position.
Depress the retaining paw and pull the grip ring outward.
Release the retaining paw, and adjust the chain to the desired length
With the chain at the correct length, depress the retaining paw. Push the grip
ring inward, and then, clockwise so that it will correctly set itself outside
of the retaining plate.
To raise a load, make sure the switch is in the neutral position, and pull
downward on the slack end of the chain so that any slack will be taken up
between the hoist and the object to be lifted.
Turn the switch to the up position and begin working the lever handle until
the object has reached the desired height.
To lower a load, turn the switch to the down position and work the lever
handle until the object has reached the desired height.
