Chain hoists are either electric or pneumatic, and have a lifting hook where the load is attached. Bulky items are easily moved, saving time and money when compared to moving by hand. Typically, used hoists are remote controlled, allowing the operator to keep a safe distance away from the load when it is in motion. ASI carries many popular brands of used hoists including; Dayton, Anver, CM Loadstar, Coffing, Budget, and Yale. Hoist capacities range from 175 to 1,000 lbs. All used chain hoists are inspected and tested before being packaged and shipped.
