Ratchet lever hoists are a popular lifting product, as they are manually operated and easy to use. Lever hoists are used when moving items that are too awkward, heavy or unsafe for one person to lift; their compact design also allows them to be used in areas with little headroom. We stock a wide range of ratchet hoists from world-leading brands Yale and William Hackett, with capacities from 250kg right up to 6,000kg. We also offer chain heights of 1.5-3 metres. When choosing your ratchet lever hoist, it’s important to consider your job and the capacity needed. Care should always be given when lifting large loads and safety precautions should always be implemented. As with any popular lifting equipment, customers can choose from a full range of hoist ratchets, from the simple and compact to the more heavy duty and innovative. We stock budget-friendly choices from both Yale and William Hackett. For instance, the Yale Handy Ratchet Lever Hoist is an indispensable tool with a multitude of application possibilities. Available in two capacities, 250kg and 500kg, and two height options, 1.5 metres and 3 metres, this is a very compact ratchet level chain hoist that is easy to use in even the most confined working conditions. Another option is the William Hackett WH-L4 Ratchet Lever Hoist, the most robust and economical ratchet lever hoist on the market. This excellent choice meets and exceeds the requirements of international standards, and has a capacity of 800kg to 6.3 tonnes. An example of a more advanced ratchet lever hoist model is the Yale ERGO 360 Ratchet Lever Hoist, which features the revolutionary crank handle that allows for efficient operation in both lifting and pulling applications. The patent-pending Yale ERGO 360, with capacities ranging from 700kg to 9,000kg lets the operator work up to 12 times faster and with as much as 30% less effort than with conventional ratchet lever tools. Ratchet lever hoists are a useful piece of equipment as they are easily set up by one person and can be used for a number of different jobs or functions. Ratchet hoists are also mobile and compact and can be used in many locations and confined spaces. They are also a cost-effective alternative to a small crane or large chain blocks. As with all our lifting gear, our ratchet lever hoists are the best quality on the market and come fully tested and certified for your confidence and safety.
