Tyler Tool Chain Hoists
Manual chain hoists are simple mechanical devices that use a geared transmission and chain to raise a load.
The hand controlled loop of chain turns a chain wheel that is attached to a short drive shaft which is connected to a series of gears.

Fitted inside the gearing is a brake paw which prevents the load from slipping when it is being raised or lowered.
Watch our video "Tyler Tool Manual Chain Hoists: Features and Operation". We demonstrate the use of a Tyler Tool, 1 ton x 10 ft chain hoist to raise and lower a 500lbs lifting box. The hoist has a 1 ton working load limit (WLL) and can raise objects to a height of ten feet. In the video, you can see raising and lowering of the box is done with minimal effort.
