The hoist is a piece of equipment used to lift or lower heavy loads within warehouses, factories, plants, and construction areas. Hoists can be used on loads of all sizes to make transporting items simple and safe for employees. In this article, we will be discussing the difference between manual chain hoists and electric chain hoists.
There are two main styles of manual chain hoists to choose from: hand hoists and lever hoists.
Hand hoists require the use of both your hands to operate. As you pull one chain, a wheel turns a series of cogs, axles, gears, and sprockets and in turn rotates the second load chain to lift or pull your load. The lifting mechanism is designed to do most of the work for you. To ensure your safety and the safety of the load, many chain hoists have a braking system that prevents the load from slipping back.
Lever hoists are also quite easy to operate and maintain. To operate them, you simply crank a side lever that is attached directly to the lifting mechanism. Unlike hand hoists, lever hoists can be operated using just one hand. This makes them ideal for horizontal, angled, and low vertical loads. Because the lever handle is located up next to the lifting mechanism, you must be close to the point of hook-up to operate.
Electric hoists only use the power to lift the items.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both.
1. Manual chain hoists don’t require any electricity or power source. This makes them much more portable compared to electric hoists.
2. Manual hoists are more cost-efficient compared to electric hoists. Not only do electric hoists cost more initially, but they also raise electricity bills.
3. Manual hoists easy to repair and maintain. No complex motors, wires, or electrical/hydraulic systems.
4. Electric chain hoists are able to lift more heavier loads.
It depends on your requirements to choose the manual chain hoist or electric chain hoist.
