One of the key issues for any Chicago installation is ensuring lead times are as minimized as possible.  This vital business metric forms the backbone of everything from consistently meeting customer expectations, helping forecast inventory, and anticipating sales to planning for customer demand and streamlining operations.  Our hand chain hoists make a critical contribution to ensuring all those goals for Chicago facilities are fully realized.


Whether it’s distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, construction sites, aviation & aerospace installations, or locally-owned repair shops throughout Chicago, if heavy lifting is part of daily operations, facilities of all sizes and types reap the benefits of our hand chain hoists to ensure daily operations run at their peak.

We Turn Load Challenges into Load Solutions

In what ways would your Chicago facility benefit from a hoist that is compact, durable, lightweight, and portable?


  • Strenuous labor-intensive work involving manual lifting is replaced with ease, safety, and enhanced efficiency.  Side note:  Work-related/heavy-lifting injuries and possible workers’ compensation claims could be circumvented.
  • Ease of operation means non-technical personnel with little training can be utilized quickly and efficiently during worker-shortage situations.
  • No need for a power source means added convenience and versatility with indoor and outdoor use.
  • Portability becomes ideal for drifting loads when an overhead crane is unavailable.
  • Simplistic designs mean easier repair and low maintenance.
  • Compact sizes allow for use in areas with little headroom.


Don’t let the size and portability of these workhorses fool you.  Depending on their design and construction, hand chain hoists can lift heavy loads to 40 tons.  If you have any questions concerning our hand chain hoists, give us a call at 425-438-9600.  Chicago businesses can, also, connect with our team, online, 24/7.
