Yale D85 Lever Hoist / Pull Lift

The Yale D85 is the original ratchet lever hoist and Yale’s founding product. The D85 together with the C85 are known as pul-lifts which is a registered trademark.

About the Yale D85 Pul-lift

With a housing cover, lever and bottom block made from white malleable cast iron which has a high tensile strength so is great at resisting tension. This rugged lever hoist has a load sheave made from graphite cast iron and incorporates chain pockets that have been precision machined to ensure the link chain fits accurately and runs smoothly.

The D85 comes in 5 models with various lifting capacities ranging from 750kg up to 10000kg. The standard height of lift comes in at 1.5 metres though this can be increased to suit your requirements at extra cost per metre.

An overload protection device can be fitted to the lever hoist at additional cost. This protection is a slipping clutch and could be a big benefit it you lift a variety of loads with different capacities which you are not always positive of its exact weight.

A further optional extra which could be added to your lever hoist if required is the Yale YKST adjustable chain end stops; these provide an additional safeguard in case of brake failure.

The Yale D85 lever hoist is commonly used for pipe setting, spotting and securing heavy objects, in fact it’s great for most heavy duty lifting tasks in industrial areas such as mining, construction, maintenance, shipbuilding, fabrication and utilities.

Other Lifting Gear

There are many scenarios where some other type of equipment may be needed in order to complete a lifting job. You may need a small crane or perhaps a beam clamp to attach the lever hoist too; you will probably need a lifting sling of some kind too, in order to secure the load to be lifted. We have a vast range of lifting gear to cover most scenarios so browse our site with the confidence that you will find what you are looking for.
