CF Standard Duty Hand Chain Hoist

The simple solution for hard work.

The CF exemplifies simplicity in design while making zero compromises on performance. Its die cast aluminum body reduces the hoist weight and won’t corrode when exposed to the elements. Plus, the proven 1:1 ratio gear system makes it a fast hoist that’s reliable and maintenance friendly. The CF is simply the best choice when you need an economical hoist that doesn’t skimp on toughness.

Lightweight Die-Cast Aluminum Housing

The CF hand chain hoist offers a rugged die-cast aluminum body which provides exceptional strength and durability.

Reliable Weston-Style Load Brake

The Weston-Style Load Brake is one of the most important inventions in the hoisting industry. With two moisture-resistant brake pads and four braking surfaces, the CF gives you positive stopping action.

Smooth Running Pre-Lubricated Bearings

Manual effort is minimized thanks to the CF’s smooth running, pre-lubricated ball bearings. Get a longer-lasting, smoother operating hoist with precision-machined drive train components that make lifting easy.

Fewer Parts Means Simpler Maintenance

Engineered with fewer parts for simplified maintenance, the CF hand chain hoist makes it easy for you to inspect and clean, and keep on lifting.

Heat-Treated Main Pinion Shaft

Tackle tough demands with a hoist that’s built with high-strength, heat-treated parts. The main pinion shaft and load gear on the CF are engineered for non-stop performance.
