About the Raptor Mini Lever Hoist
Compact, light and easily portable are the three main benefits to the Raptor mini lever hoist. The base model can handle loads weighing up to 250kg. However the unit only weighs 1.8kg so handling and transportation is easy. If you need a little more power then the top model can handle 500kg loads. This weighs in at just 4kg so still easy to move around to where they are needed.
Key Elements of the Raptor Mini Ratchet Lever Hoist
Both the top anchoring hook and the lower load hook incorporate sprung safety latches and have been drop forged. The sprung catches offer peace of mind that the hoist and load will remain in place until removed. It can not slip out of the hook.
The ratcheting mechanism uses gears and pawls which are turned by cranking the lever. When the lever/handle is cranked the load chain will move in the direction in which the selector switch is set.
Up or down positions are selected by the central switch on the lever. This enables you to either lift OR lower the load if its a lifting application or pull pull or release/relax if used for a pulling or tensioning application.
Quality load chain is used on the Raptor mini lever hoist and comes with a 1.5 meter lifting height as standard. Both models with the 1.5 m H.O.L. can now be purchased directly online but it may be possible to lengthen the height of lift with a longer, suitable chain so give the office a call for more details.
