The Cranes-UK guide to finding quality chain hoists for sale

We would always recommend that you look out for the following when considering buying a chain hoist:

• Are there used options available? This can help to significantly reduce the cost of your electric chain hoist. Always check the condition and make sure that all necessary paperwork is available, proving that the chain hoist has been serviced.

• Do you recognise the brands? It helps to ensure quality if you opt for a well-known, industry-leading brand. Names like Yale, Demag, Donati, Stahl, Kito and CM Lodestar are some of the most reputable.

• What lifting capacity do you require? Make sure you select an appropriate hoist for the lifts you will be performing. Electric chain hoists can usually lift loads up to 30 Tonnes. If you need a larger capacity hoist, you might want to consider an electric wire rope hoist instead.

• Is there an operational limit switch? This will help with general operational safety and it will help protect the load as well.

• Is there a chain container? This will collect up the chain slack, which protects the hoist itself and also prevents the load getting scratched and damaged.

• Are there any of the additional features you might require? If you need something specialist, such as a radio remote control system, check if the hoist has it or if it is compatible with your chosen hoist before going ahead with the purchase.
