When choosing hand chain hoists, there are several critical points to keep in mind:

  • Lift speed – slow and precise lifting is best
  • Amount of pull force on the hand chain to lift the full load
  • Frequency of lifts
  • Weight of the load
  • Hand chain drop required – usually, 2 feet less than the lift
  • Load limiter required to avoid gross overloads
  • Special attributes such as plated chain, spark resistance, and/or specialized hooks

As a hand chain hoists company, we encourage consulting with our seasoned staff for additional insight on any of our hoist systems.  Feel free to connect with our team, at any time:  425.438.9600.

Morgan Aero’s hoists are proudly manufactured in the USA.  The lifting and lowering of components, cargo, and other materials can be accomplished with the ease and precision our hand chain hoists provide.  A single operator is all it takes – no more teams of workers would be required to manage your loads.  Enhanced efficiency, optimized safety, and reduced lead times are any installation’s critical objectives, and our hand chain hoists help to ensure those objectives are realized.


Hand Chain Hoist Benefits in Review

In a nutshell, Morgan Aero’s hand chain hoists offer:

  • Precise control – the gear system contains a brake pawl to prevent load slippage/control lifting & lowering to enhance safety and accuracy.
  • Reduced physical strain – The degree of manual effort required for lifting, when compared to hand winches, is significantly less.  Any worker can lift heavy items, regardless of their physical strength.
  • Portability – Our hand chain hoists are ideal for locations where power sources are not available – can be used indoors and outdoors!
  • Compactness – Hand chain hoists are perfect for operating in tight spaces, unlike lever hoists that would be challenged under the same circumstances.  Portable and lightweight, hand chain hoists require minimum effort to lift heavy loads.
  • Simplicity – With no wires or motors, maintenance and repairs are uncomplicated.
  • Cost-efficiency – Hand chain hoists allow a single person to perform the work of two or more people, allowing for reduced labor costs.
  • Minimized injuries – Strenuous, tiring, labor-intensive work involving manual lifting is replaced with ease, safety, and enhanced efficiency – minimizing the potential for workers’ comp claims.


For 60 years, Morgan Aero has enjoyed its close partnerships with aircraft, aerospace, and general manufacturing installations.  Another one of our hoists – our Aerospace worm-drive hoists – has become foundational for heavy-lift solutions for Boeing and most major airlines, worldwide.  One thousand of our Aerospace chain hoists are in use, around the world.
