Mechanical Hoists
Ratchet Hoists

'User Friendly' Operation and Construction
Experienced users prefer Chance lever hoists for longterm dependable performance. Easy and fast to operate, lightweight for simple handling but rugged for reliable duty, Chance hoists deliver features with added value for operator productivity.
• Quick take-up speed ... or slower rate ... to serve the job at hand. Adjust simply as a function of the operator's stroke on the handle. Using full travel of the handle rapidly shortens long-reach lifting and lowering operations ... or, for more close-tolerance situations, extra accuracy can be maintained using partial strokes on the handle.
• Convenient for even cramped-quarters work, the ratchet handle operates from either side of the hoist. This permits the option of either a push or pull stroke to best suit worksite conditions and user preferences.
• Controls work simply, even without removing gloves. Readily accessible on all models are two simple levers: Shift Key for Up or Down direction changes and Release Key for activating the ratchet handle.
• Basically maintenance-free, each Chance hoist comes with an illustrated Operating Manual, including a complete parts list. Normal maintenance calls for only routine inspection. Common pliers and a screwdriver are the only tools needed to service Chance hoists and a single spare parts kit contains minor replacement items common to all types and ratings.
• Proof-tested and factory-operated at 150% of capacity rating, every Chance hoist employs a high-strength mechanism. The simple yet extremely sturdy engineered design ensures dependable service proved by 40 years of field experience and laboratory tests.
• Forged-steel load hooks at both ends swivel 360° for easy attachment and to help maintain axial alignment in use. For easy hook-up, chain or strap releases to free wheel only under no-load conditions. Under load, the hoist controls automatically lock. All hooks are fitted with spring-loaded gate latches.
• High grade materials include extensive use of heat treated aluminum in housing/handle parts for low weight, high-strength polished alloy-steel link chain

All working parts are fully enclosed in the housing unit to protect the hoist mechanism and to cover the gearing for worker safety. Chain is high-strength alloy steel, polished for smooth action and low wear. Load hooks are forged steel with spring-loaded latches. Both top and bottom hooks swivel 360° to allow for unwinding action of rope or stranded cable under tension.
Operation
For easy hook-up, chain release to freewheel but only under no-load conditions. Controls automatically lock when hoist is pulling a load. Two simple levers . . . Shift Key for up and down, on top housing, and Release Key in handle recess . . .are easy to switch, even wearing gloves. Simply by ratcheting one or two clicks per stroke in up or down mode, operator can choose quick speed of a full link or half-link rate for extra accuracy. For cramped-quarters work, ratchet handle swings to either side. This provides option of push or pull stroke to best suit conditions and preferences.
Each unit comes with an illustrated Operating Manual, includes complete parts list. Lifetime oil-impregnated bronze sleeve bearings require no additional lubrication.

• One model: 3/4 - 1-1/2 Ton ratings
• Two styles for rubber-glove work and hotstick work
Construction and operation
Designed with special features, two hoist options offer a choice for maintenance and construction. Select regular style for standard duty or electric-utility rubber-glove procedures.
For hotstick operations, select hoist with handling ring on the handle. Lightweight for easy handling, both styles are rugged to serve many heavy-duty uses.
Convertible ratings feature
Either style can adapt immediately to varying field needs. When rigged at the lower rating, either size hoist adds 3 feet of lift-distance capability, as listed in the Specifications
below. To rig either style hoist for its higher rating, keep the loadhook sheave mounted midway on the strap when it is becketed (i.e., doubled, with the end of the strap secured to the hoist frame). To convert to the lower rating, simply secure the load hook sheave through the loop in the strap free end.
Both models also feature:
• Take-up wheel with cogs for hand operation and holes for hot stick operation.
• Easy-access Shift and Release Keys operate by hotsticks or by hand, even with gloves.

Nylon-Strap Ratchet Hoists - 1 Ton & 2 Ton Ratings
Nylon Strap Ratchet Hoists
• 1-Ton & 2-Ton Ratings
Designed with special features, both 1-Ton and 2-Ton hoists offer a choice of two handle options for utility maintenance and construction. For rubber-glove work, select hoist with plastisol cap on handle end. For operation by hot-line tools, specify hoist with swivel-eye on handle end. All models have hot-stick rings on hooks and latches.
Single strap of 1-Ton units reaches and lifts farther. 2-Ton units employ a sheave-mounted hook in a double-strap becket.

Safety tips from label on hoist handles:
• INSURE HOOK-TO-HOOK PULL IS IN A STRAIGHT LINE AND DOES NOT EXCEED THE LOAD RATING STAMPED ON THE HANDLE.
• DO NOT PERMIT HANDLE TO SELF-RATCHET.
• DO NOT HANG, BOUNCE, OR EXCEED 200 POUNDS FORCE ON HANDLE.
• DO NOT REPLACE HANDLE WITH A LONGER HANDLE OR USE AN EXTENSION ON HANDLE.
• DO NOT USE HOIST AS A LOAD BINDER.
• CLOSE LATCHES ON SAFETY HOOKS BEFORE USING.

Epoxyglas Hoist Link Sticks
Epoxyglas Hoist Link Sticks
To permit hot-line work with a nylon-strap ratchet hoist, a properly applied link stick insulates the hoist from an energized conductor. The hoist link stick is a 1-1/4"-diameter Epoxiglas pole with a steel hook on one end and a butt swivel on the other.
To apply the link stick, attach the hook of the stick to a wire grip using the hotstick eye to operate the hook. Complete the application by connecting the nylon-strap hoist to the link stick butt swivel and to a pole or crossarm.
