Manual Hand Operated Chain Blocks

Home > Manual Hand Operated Chain Blocks

Overview

A Manual Hand Chain Block is predominantly favoured for lifting applications where there are either long intervals between use, frequent changes of use or even just tasks in a remote location.  This makes a chain block a very versatile piece of lifting equipment and the option of various heights of lift (HOL) and top hook connection points allows nearly endless configurations for all industry sectors.
