ATO manual chain hoist is a simple yet effective lifting device used in in construction sites, workshops, warehouses, and other settings where heavy lifting is required. This hand chain block consists of a sturdy steel housing containing a chain wheel and a load chain. The load chain is equipped with a lifting hook at one end and is manually operated by pulling on the hand chain.

Tips: What is a manual chain hoist?
A manual chain hoist, also known as a manual chain block or a manual chain fall, is a mechanical device used for lifting and lowering heavy loads. It is a type of hoisting equipment that relies on a chain and pulley system to provide the lifting force.
The manual chain hoist consists of several key components. The main part is a hand-operated chain wheel, which is typically attached to a long chain made up of interconnected links. The load is attached to a hook or a sling that hangs from the bottom end of the chain. The chain passes through a set of gears and pulleys housed within a sturdy casing.
To operate a manual chain hoist, an operator pulls the hand chain, which causes the chain wheel to rotate. As the chain wheel turns, it moves the load-bearing chain, thereby lifting the load. The gear and pulley system within the hoist helps to multiply the pulling force applied by the operator, enabling them to lift heavy objects with relatively less effort.
The manual chain hoist is designed to provide a mechanical advantage, allowing users to lift loads that would be otherwise too heavy to lift by hand alone. It is commonly used in various industries, including construction, manufacturing, warehouses, and workshops. It offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for lifting and positioning heavy objects in a controlled manner.
