SERIES USA HAND CHAIN HOISTS

DESIGN FEATURES:
The USA Hand Chain Hoists were boldly engineered to combine various materials with
special shapes and incorporating features to ensure greater strength and ruggedness, true
efficiency, smooth operation and greater reliability. USA Hand Chain Hoists
boast features like:
• Light weight.
• Frame made from tough aluminum alloy casting with high strength qualities.
• Hand chain wheel cover of heavy pressed steel with special shape
   to guide the hand chain through gag-resistant operations.
• Aproven load brake design of the Weston Type for fine, sure control.
• Overload device standard. Protection from excessive overloads.

Hook Suspension Hoists

The USA Hook Suspended Hoists are lightweight and compactly designed for portable,
hook-on, use anywhere type service. The rugged design provides long life in industrial
and construction service and is frequently used in rigging and off-vertical type lifting
requirements.
Construction Features
Frame: The frame of the USA Series Hoist
is a tough, impact resistant, lightweight, heat
treated, permanent mold cast aluminum alloy.
The frame is heavily proportioned, designed
primarily for rigidity to hold the gears and
bearings in close alignment. The frame with
the covers encloses all operating parts
protecting them from dirt and the weather.
Load Sprocket: The load sprocket and
sprocket gear are machined from one-piece
steel forging. The chain guide is a heat-
treated, spring steel, flexible guide which
provides heat-treated smooth surfaces that
flex in the frame, controlling the load without
binding.
2 Ton USA Hand
Chain Hoists
Load Chain: Closely calibrated chain links
of special analysis alloy steel formed and
heat-treated for unusual strength, car-
bonized for long wear and usage. The links
are accurately formed to fit the pockets of
the load sprocket.
Overload Device: The chain wheel, in
addition to having pockets accurately
formed to receive the links of the hand
chain, also forms a part of a unique patent
pending overload device as a standard
feature. The overload device is calibrated
for the capacity of the hoist and factory
installed as an added measure of protection
for the load, hoist, and operator.
Hand Chain: The hand chain is welded
steel and zinc plated for corrosion resistance
and “clean hands” operation. The chain links
are accurately formed to fit the pockets of
the chain wheel, for gag-resistant operation
in the chain wheel and guide arrangement.
Gearing: The gearing is straight spur for
good efficiency. The gears and pinions are
generously proportioned and precision cut
from alloy steel and heat treated for max-
imum strength and durability. All gears are
grease packed in a grease tight gearcase.
Hooks: The hooks are drop forged steel
and are tough and ductile so that they will
open noticeably when subjected to excessive
overload. They are full swiveling, and each
is equipped with a spring type hook latch.
Load Brake: The automatic, screw
actuated, Weston-type load brake holds
the load under all conditions and permits
fine smooth control in lowering. The brake
is self-adjusting with the friction washers
long wearing, requiring low maintenance.
