Yale Hand chain hoist Yalelift 360

Capacity 500 – 20000 kg

Areas of operation as well as operator conditions have been improved far beyond those of a classical hand chain hoist.


  • The enclosed robust stamped steel housing protects all internal components even in the toughest conditions.
  • The extremely low headroom allows maximum use of the lifting height.
  • The revolutionary 360° rotating hand chain guide allows the operator to work from virtually any position, in confined spaces or above the load. The Yalelift can even be operated from the side of the load which also makes it possible to use the hoist for horizontal pulling or tensioning. Due to the additional flexibility, the opera-tor is no longer forced to work in the danger zone near the load.
  • The brake system is extremely quiet and guarantees operational safety and improved serviceability due to omission of the vulnerable ratchet pawls. All parts are made of high quality materials, additionally zinc-plated or yellow-chromated to increase corrosion prevention.
  • Chain guide and gearbox are almost totally enclosed. Even under the toughest conditions the internal gear-box remains protected.
  • The hardened load sheave with four precision ma-chined pockets ensures accurate movement of the load chain.
  • The surface protected zinc-plated alloy steel load chains fulfil all requirements of current national and international standards and regulations.
  • Drop forged load and suspension hooks that yield under overload instead of breaking, are made of high tensile steel. The hooks are fitted with robust safety latches and rotate 360°.


  • Adjustable overload protection device.
  • Chain container
  • Corrosion resistant version


Easy modification from Yalelift 360 to Yalelift IT is possible.
Yale hoists and trolleys are not designed for passenger elevation applications and must not be used for this purpose.
