Tractel chain blocks are a worthy addition to this line-up of manual chain hoists, representing the company’s heritage effectively with their versatility and build quality. For almost 80 years Tractel has been serving the global lifting equipment market with its own brand of well designed, competitively priced kit. As well as hoists, it is a leader in the PPE market, with lots of products to pick. Here is an overview of some of the models we sell at Lifting Gear Direct.
A lot of other manual chain blocks are marketed as being small yet powerful. In reality the only one which can live up to both claims is the Tralift from Tractel. Just a quick glance at its compact exterior will tell you that a lot of effort has gone into slimming down this hoist without limiting its capabilities.
Even in its basic form, the smallest of the range can still cope with loads weighing up to 500kg. Sizes increase as the Tralift family progresses, with the biggest unit offering a 20 tonne safe working limit. Furthermore its size means that it can be used even if there is not much room around the assembly to which it is affixed. This is a relevant advantage in a number of industries and scenarios, from factories to warehouses and beyond.
Aside from its dimensions, there are a lot of other advantages to the Tralift that are worth mentioning. It has a 180 degree chain guide which makes it easier to manoeuvre loads from different angles while still keeping the operation of the chain smooth. It has brakes and bearings which are larger than you might think, which means that it can hold loads securely and reel them in without any clunking and grinding going on.
Buyers can specify different features and add-ons for manual chain blocks, including load limiters that ensure they are not encumbered with too much weight accidentally, preserving lifting safety in the process. Meanwhile the nyloc nuts which are used to keep the ensure assembly together will be a resilient and welcome addition, able to withstand high pressures and temperatures alike.
As one of the top brands in the lifting equipment market, Tractel supplies lots of other useful products and components. From beam clamps to lever hoists, it has plenty to offer customers. Check out all of the Tractel options you can buy here at Lifting Gear Direct.
