United Rentals offers chain hoist sales at local United Rentals branches nationwide. To purchase a chain hoist or find availability, please contact your local branch or filter by your location to see used hoists nearby.
After purchasing a chain hoist, you must hang it from a sturdy brace, like a steel I-beam. The chain should be hanging as high as possible and clear of the working area.
A chain hoist is used for lifting and pulling, while a crane is typically the choice for lifting heavier loads. A chain hoist has a chain or wire rope that runs through a sheave to lift and pull items, whereas a crane uses steel cables.
