A hoist is a device used for lifting or lowering a load by means of a drum or lift-wheel around which rope or chain wraps. It may be manually operated, electrically or pneumatically driven and may use chain, fiber or wire rope as its lifting medium. The load is attached to the hoist by means of a lifting hook.
US Materials Handling caries a wide variety of hoists including hand chain hoists, electric chain hoists, air hoists, air hoists, and lever hoists. In addition, we carry hoist related equipment such as trolleys, slings, hoisting hooks, and more.
