Ratchet Lever Hoists

Home > Ratchet Lever Hoists


Ratchet Lever Hoists are a lightweight manual portable lifting device used to lift, lower or pull a load.  Lever hoists are also frequently used for tensioning and pulling applications. The advantage of using a lever hoist over a manual chain block is that the user is able to lift in most positions, including horizontally and vertically, which makes these units perfect for any maintenance task in most locations.

New Range: The William Hackett SS-L5 QP is the first lever hoist to incorporate four pawl mechanical engagement functionality See SS-L5 QP (Quad Pawl) in Technical downloads for further information.




WORKING LOAD LIMIT RANGE: 800kg to 20 tonnes.

LIGHT LOAD CAPABILITY: the WH-L4 is tested and certified at 2% of the lever hoist rated capacity.

TWIN PAWL double safety; fitted as standard

SAFETY LATCHES: WH-L4 lever hoist top and bottom hooks are fitted with heavy duty cast steel latches. The latch and hook tips are integrated creating a strong and robust hook closure.

OVERLOAD INDICATOR MARKS: WH-L4 lever hoist top and bottom hooks have, as part of the hook forging, overload indicator marks either side of the hook throat. By measuring the distance between the indicator marks, the hook can be quickly and easily checked to see if any stretch has occurred due to misuse or overloading

HOOK HOUSING: WH-L4 lever hoist top and bottom hook housings are secured with socket head cap screws/hex head bolts and nyloc locking nuts

FLEETING/CROSS HAULING: WH-L4 lever hoists are tested and certified for fleeting or cross hauling applications up to 45° from the vertical without deration.

LOAD CHAIN: WH-L4 lever hoists are fitted with load chain that fully complies with international standards BS EN818-7 Grade T (8).

TRAVELLING END STOP: available as an option upon request. The travelling end stop can be fitted as a replacement to the standard end stop. The travelling end stop allows the user, when a WH-L4 lever hoist is in position, to move the end stop along the slack chain and position adjacent to the body of the lever hoist. This has the benefits of shortening the slack chain, and stopping any potential ‘run’ of load chain through the hoist when the operator comes to use it again.
