AMH—Our House Brand
There are so many hand chain hoists on the market that it can be difficult to choose a brand. Like most, you probably want the most bang for your buck. Meet our favorite new hand chain hoist, the MA Series By AMH
. Why do we love these hoists so much? For starters, they have a great build quality. The operation is smooth, the labeling is very clear--in fact, each hoist is shows both a Metric Ton rating, as well as a rating in pounds. The load chain is made from Grade 80 steel right here in the U.S.A. (with the exception of the smallest size, the MA005 1/2 Ton units), and each hoist is assembled and tested in the U.S.A. as well. To customize your hoist, you can specify self-closing hooks and/or overload protection. Note that custom hoists will incur extra charges, so please inquire prior to ordering.
Other Brands of Hand Chain Hoists
Aside from AMH, we offer hand chain hoists from both CM and Harrington. Both brands have a dedicated following and offer high-quality products. One popular model is the CM 622 Series
. It's a high-quality, no frills hoist that gives you a lot of bang for the buck. Still, these hoists have the features most users want, such as high-quality load chain, a Weston-type load brake and forged hooks that hold up well. To go up one step, check out the CM Cylcone Series
, which may well be considered the "Cadillac" of hand chain hoists. It’s a very smooth, high-quality hoist made with only the best components, and is considered one of the most popular and reliable hand chain hoists ever designed. Each Cyclone hoist is inspected over 75 times to meet or exceed HMI and ASME / ANSI performance and safety standards. Additional features include rugged Hoistaloy load chain, high-efficiency spur gearing for greater lift with minimum effort and a load limiter for automatic overload protection (load limiter is a standard feature).
