In today's video we're going to talk about lever hoist and how you can safely
operate and put them to use for your application. Lever voices are simple to
operate and consist of one drop forged swivel hook fitted to the hoists 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 and the switch can also be fixed to
a neutral position which enables the operator to free spool the chain to the
desired link needed for the application. To operate a lever hoist, first, make sure
that the directional switch is in the neutral position and depress the
retaining pole so that the grip ring can be pulled outward. Adjust the chain to
the desired length needed. With the chain at the correct length depress the
retaining paw and 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.
