Choosing a chain hoist is easy!

  1. Do you need powered or manual operation? Let's face it, everything is easier electronic, we as humans love things happening at the push of a button, so if budget permits- go electric (or pneumatic), but truthfully if you're only using the hoist a few times a year then maybe it's not worth it- that's your decision
  2. Select the desired maximum load weight (we start at 500lbs)
  3. Choose a lifting height or 'height of lift' that's future proof. By this we mean think about the future of this hoist, if the hoist moves and you need a longer lifting height the only way to extend the hoist is a new chain which can be an expensive procedure for a small gain, choose a chain long enough for every job the hoist will perform
  4. Choose how you'll suspend your hoist, this might be via its top hook on to a beam clamp or travel trolley whilst we offer some units that feature integrated trolleys (this is quite standard for electric chain hoists)

That's it! It really is that easy, for more information on electric and pneumatic (air) chain hoists please see their specific category pages.
