This is an excellent manual chain hoist option for organisations of all sizes. Designed to make upkeep tasks a breeze, this is just one of the excellent GT Lifting products we sell on our site.
Like all the best manual chain hoists, this model from GT is made to last and designed to be maintained with relative ease. From the heavy duty materials used in its construction to the design of the unit itself, it should make ownership a breeze over time, as well as providing daily practicality when deployed in a variety of commercial settings.
Lifting equipment safety is obviously important, so we offer inspection services to ensure that your chain block is compliant with regulations year after year. The GT Viper is an undeniably durable product, but it can only remain this way if you get it checked regularly.
Part of the resilience of the Viper is down to the choice of materials that are found across the entire assembly. The zinc plated load chain is the most obvious advantage it offers, as it is not only strong and resistant to abrasions and impacts, but also capable of combating corrosion that might leave lesser metals looking worse for wear fairly quickly.
The hand chain is also plated with zinc, which makes sense given the rest of the design and should help the hoist to perform consistently over time, rather than resulting in one part wearing out faster than its contemporaries.
The Viper is not a one size fits all chain hoist but is actually a comprehensive range that factors in units of various sizes and capacities. As you would expect, the most compact models use a single chain fall to lift loads, topping out at 2 tonnes. For three tonnes or more, additional chain falls are needed.
The highest capacity model has a 30 tonne safe working load limit, with 12 chain falls in total. It weighs in at 228kg in its own right, which is worth bearing in mind when choosing your chain block.
The Viper represents an undoubtedly varied range of lifting gear, but there are lots of other block and tackle models to consider. If you need specialised, ATEX compliant kit, Yale has plenty of chain blocks to offer. Kito has high capacity load handling equipment as well, so keep your search broad for the best results.
