Some call these items hand chain hoists, as these hoists are non powered – and thus operated by hand. We suggest powered hoists for capacities over 2000 pounds. Hand hoists with heavy capacity tend to require much effort to lift, or it takes a lot of hand motion to produce a small amount of lift. What customers require hand hoists?
