Tyler Tool Lever Hoist: Features and Operation

Sharing buttons:

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.
