Yale C85 Pull Lift / Ratchet Lever Hoist

First, what is a Pull Lift?

A pull lift is known as lever hoist or ratchet chain hoist. It a budget and versatile tool, perfect for lifting, pulling and securing materials.

The Yale C85 Pul Lift with the capacity from 750kg to 3,000kg is ideal for use in the electricity supply industry and in overhead line work. It is also suitable for cargo tie-down applications since it has an automatic screw-and-disc type load brake preventing an unintentional loosening of the load. The model is essentially the same hoist as the D85 Yale Level Hoist. Instead of a conventional link chain, it uses a roller chain. If you need a lever hoist for frequent operation in tough conditions, the heavy-duty C85 Pul-Lift is the right one that has also been known to have a working life up to 40+ years if well maintained.

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.
