Product Description

The Harrington LX lever hoist with hook mount is a compact, manually operated hoist featuring a die-cast aluminum body and steel frame for mobility, tight workspaces, and durability. Low headroom allows the hoist to fit in tight workspaces, a free-chain adjusting mechanism facilitates rapid adjustments, and a low pulling force requirement enables ease of use. The hook mount and load hook have notched tips to hold latches more firmly in place. In addition, a single-step reduction gear helps secure the load for added safety. The Weston-style brake is completely covered for protection from dirt, dust, and rain, and the grade 100 nickel-plated load chain is wear and corrosion resistant. The handle grip is made of rubber for comfort, while the load chain guide mechanism allows for smooth, quiet operation. The Harrington LX lever hoist is used primarily in transportation, construction, and plumbing applications to lift and move heavy loads in small spaces, and can be employed for similar purposes in other industries. This hoist is factory load tested to 125% of rated capacity in accordance with American National Standards Institute/American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ANSI/ASME) requirements. It also complies with ANSI/ASME B30.21 and ANSI/ASME HST-3M standards. When used according to manufacturer’s recommendations, this product is covered by a two-year warranty from date of shipment against defects in workmanship or materials.

Hoists are mechanical devices that use relatively small amounts of force to lift, lower, and move heavy loads. Manual hoists work by transferring a force exerted by hand across a series of gears that concentrate it into a force great enough to lift the designated load. The lifting mechanism consists of a pulley with a chain or cord and large wheel, or a ratchet lever attached to a large wheel; a drive shaft; gear set; sprocket wheel threaded with a load chain; and a lifting hook. The pulley or ratchet turns the drive shaft, which engages the gears; the gears interact to rotate the sprocket wheel and load chain, which pulls the hook up to lift the load. When the force used to turn the large wheel reaches the smaller sprocket wheel, it has become concentrated enough to lift the load. Friction disk brakes called Weston-style brakes are attached to the large wheel. These brakes hold the load in place while the operator’s hands are released to make the next pull, secure the load once it has been lifted, and control the descent of load as it is lowered. Hoists can be attached to structures such as cranes, ceilings, or walls by a variety of methods including hook, trolley, deck, base, wall, and ceiling mounts. They are used in a variety of industries including transportation, construction, manufacturing, mining, plumbing, foundry, and materials handling.

Capacity is the maximum rated load a hoist can handle. While manufacturers may indicate they have tested a hoist beyond its limits, operators should never attempt to lift a load heavier than the maximum rated load. Pull force describes the amount of force that needs to be applied to lift a load. If a 1/2 ton manual hoist specifies a pull force of 40 lbs., for example, the operator needs to be able to pull a 40 lb. weight in order to lift the maximum 1/2 ton (500 lb.) load. Headroom is the distance from the bottom of the load hook to the top of the hoist. This is the minimum amount of vertical space needed for the hoist to hang freely and operate correctly. Lift is the maximum vertical distance the load hook can move a load.

Harrington Hoists manufactures hoists and cranes. The company, founded in 1854 and headquartered in Manheim, PA, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.

Load Capacity: 500Hook Opening String: 0.8Headroom String: 8.1Maximum Lifting Height: 5Pull Force: 40Lever Length: 5.9 inches Verified Purchase
I have used the same hoist for six years, and now purchased a second one. The first one is now scratched from constant use, but works as well as on the first day. The hoist is made in Japan. It is strong despite being light and very compact. The handle can be either rotated around or ratcheted, which really saves time when I want to lift faster. It is coated with rubber which still has not come off or deteriorated after years of use. Also the design allows the hoist to be ratcheted up together with the load, which is convenient in some of my applications. As long as your load does not exceed the modest 1/4 ton capacity of this hoist, I think it is one of the best around.

I have had a pair of the LX003's for about five years and use them all the time. I'm an industrial sheet metal worker and these are in my truck box always. I use them for too many things to list here. The quality is great as long as you don't over load them. I recently lost one and I'm replacing it with another one. It's the kind of thing that works great in pairs. I need to have two of them. And I guess I need to keep a better eye on them now that one of them found legs. One of my workers teased that it looked small enough to be a key chain but within a couple of days was asking to borrow them. This is a great tool.

I recently purchased a pair of these and they work okay for I what I need them for. One of the things that bothers me is that the neutral gear on one come along doesn't work and only works sometimes on the other one. I've used several of the 60 dollar ones that you can buy and to be honest the quality is pretty much the same. I also spread open the hook on one of them with way less than the load limit but in the products defense I had it connected in a way that put all of the weight on the tip.

This is pretty much what I needed. The quality seems to be there as far as I can tell.
Its much smaller than I thought it would be. Which is a good thing as long as it has the 500# of pull.
It also comes with an individual serial numbered load rating certification. I guess in case you need it for industrial use.
I may buy a few more since its so compact. Pretty much the size of my fist if you don't include the chain.

this is a great product for the home hobby guy not heavy construction. I use it on my 54 chey truck to lift body parts and other items related to home use. light weight and easy to handle. just love it as it is my helper when working on something and I no longer have to prop stuff up which makes my wife happy for me to work safely as she says she has a lot invested in me.

I was surprised by how small this hoist is. It is amazing that something so small can lift so much weight. The fit and finish is top notch. Just be aware that the hooks are also quite small. I was unable to attach two lifting straps to the hook at the same time. Although, this can be easily resolved with an adapter.

I've used the Harrington LX005 for several years now. It's just great! You won't find a better 1/2 ton lever hoist of such compact size and light weight anywhere. Also, this unit is manufactured in Japan, not in China....BIG difference! The workmanship and quality is excellent.

I purchased this for use on a boat, since the capacity is rather low for use in my job. Well, I have used it several times for work, sometimes to make a job easier that could be done by hand.
If a lifting or positioning job is easier, it is usually safer, too.
