How does a manual chain block work?
A manual chain block is an innovative heavy lifting device used in building, mechanical and industrial applications. Without explaining all the physics, a manual chain block transforms small force over a long distance into large force over a short distance, allowing people to manually hoist objects they couldn’t otherwise lift.
What is a manual chain block used for?
Any mechanically minded person is familiar with chain blocks used in backyards and garages around Australia every day. These manual chain block hoists provide the lifting power required even without motorised equipment, and the strong load chain can support an entire car engine all day. Manual chain block support provides all the lifting power required.
