The Viper lever hoist can be used in pretty much any position to lift, pull or tension loads. It can be used in an up or down movement by changing the setting on the change over lever to up or down. The hoist should always be rigged in a straight line from hook to hook.
Once you have chosen the direction of pull you can crank the lever, the female thread and changeover pawl will engage, rotating the female thread in the chosen direction. The brake is automatically engaged as soon as lever operation stops and will hold the load until the lever is operated again.
If you want to raise the chain, set the change over lever to the ‘up’ position and move the lever in a clockwise movement. To make the chain move downwards, set the change over lever to down and move the lever in counter -clockwise motion.
A minimum load is needed in order to activate the automatic braking system, see table.
Prior to using the lever hoist you should make sure the load chain is fully lubricated. Do not operate if it is not in a straight, in-line pull. Never touch the grip wheel during load movement.
The GT Viper ratchet lever hoist is available in a choice of safe working load lifting capacities ranging from 250kg up to 9000kg. It is an easy to use lever hoist with minimal effort required to operate it, thanks to the shorter lever/handle and special gear ratio.
