Selecting a Pulling and Lifting Product on Amazon.com
Pulling and Lifting is a category on Amazon.com for material handling products used to lift or position heavy loads, such as hoists or winches. It also includes attachments and accessories. Pulling and lifting equipment is used to move loads along a vertical or horizontal plane, or a combination of both.
The most common pulling and lifting equipment is the hoist. There are manual lever hoists, hand chain hoists, and power hoists, which are usually suspended from a beam and have a chain or wire rope wrapped around a drum for raising a load vertically. There is also block and tackle rigging that utilizes a pulley block and rope or cable. These lifting devices usually lift loads using a hook, but alternative attachments are available such as lift magnets and lifting clamps.
To move a suspended load horizontally, a ratchet puller hoist can be used, or the hoist can be attached to a trolley that rolls along the suspension beam. Some pulling and lifting equipment can move a load without first suspending it, such as a winch and hand puller. A winch uses similar technology to a hoist but is used for horizontal positioning. Gear and bearing pullers for removing parts from a machine are also available.
Many pulling and lifting accessories are available, such as tarps, tie-down straps, and load binders for cargo. There are also chain and rope fittings, slings, sheaves, and a variety of attachments and replacement parts. Before selecting a pulling and lifting product, consider the intended operation and weight capacity.
Pulling and lifting equipment is frequently employed in manufacturing, distribution, and construction, among many other applications.
