Britain’s No. 1 Name for Lifting - YALE
Yale is a global brand of Columbus McKinnon (CM). The Yale name is synonymous with quality hoisting equipment and has been since 1877 when Linus Yale, Jr. produced the first spur geared hand chain hoist with the Weston Screw Brake. Today, nearly 145 years on, Yale still leads the industry with new and innovative products, making their hoists and lifting equipment the no.1 choice in the UK and globally recognized.
The proven stamped steel housing provides extremely low weight without limiting the reliability and sturdiness of the unit.
The shorthand lever is fitted with an ergonomic rubber grip.
Standard free chaining device to quickly attach the load or to pull the chain through the hoist in both directions.
Alloyed steel link chain with zinc-plated resp. yellow chromate finish, in accordance with national and international standards and regulations.
Drop forged suspension and load hooks are made from non-ageing, high tensile steel and fitted with robust safety latches.
Items often needed to operate a lever hoist: - Suspension: It can be suspended in a fixed location with a Beam Clamp or from a Push Trolley/Geared Trolley with its top hook. - Load Attachment: The lower hook can directly attach a load but quite commonly a lifting sling is used to secure a load onto the hook (in conjunction with shackles sometimes)
Yale hoists and trolleys are not designed for passenger elevation applications and must not be used for this purpose.
All ratchet lever hoists with a capacity exceeding 750 kg can be used for load attachment according to EN 12195.
All models can be equipped with an overload prevention device in the form of a slip clutch which is factory preset to approx. 25% ± 15% overload.
