A pul-lift lever hoist is a lifting pulling and tensioning device. A ratchet mechanism pulls the load chain through the hoist body shortening the distance between the load hooks, the lever action of the handle reduces the manual effort required to operate a pullift. Every unit has a maximum safe working load and this should never be exceeded when lifting a load.

Pul-lifts are rated as a vertical lift though ratchet lever hoists can be used for tensioning at angles, the load must be calculated by the competent person to ensure that the lever hoist is not overloaded. It is deemed good practice to have a load measuring device in-line (load cell) to monitor the load as tension is applied.
Pull Lifts can also be used for pulling a load though the maximum load that can be pulled must be calculated by the competent person dependant on:

  • Is the load in rolling (on wheels)
  • Is the load on level flat surface or on a slope,
  • Is the surface smooth concrete
  • Are you pulling through sand! Etc...

To summarise the maximum load that can be pulled is dependent on user assessment taking into account the amount of drag/resistance.

'Ratchet Lever Hoist's are a really convenient piece of portable lifting equipment that can be quickly and easily set-up and they can be used in most environments, indoor and outdoor use, in a workshop or an offshore oil platform etc...They can be supplied in capacities from 250kg right up to 10 tonne SWL, and are the ideal solution where portability, ease of use, cost effectiveness, lack of electrical power supply and durability are a requirement. A pul-lift is a cost effective lifting tool and is easy to operate with minimal training.
