LEVER BLOCKS

A lever block is a type of lifting device that uses a Lever block chain to lift and move heavy loads. Lever blocks are often used in construction and industrial settings to move heavy machinery and materials.

Lever blocks consist of a steel frame with a lever attached to one end. The other end of the lever is attached to a chain. Lever blocks are operated by pulling on the lever, which raises the load. The operator can then use the lever block chain to move the load to another location.

The lever block chain is typically made of high-strength steel, making it able to support very heavy loads.

How does a lever block work?

A lever block is a type of lifting device that uses a chain and Lever to lift and lower heavy loads. The lever block consists of two main parts: the frame and the lever. The frame is typically made of steel or aluminium and houses the chain. The lever is attached to the frame and is used to operate the device.

To use a lever block, the operator first attaches the chain to the load. The load is then hooked onto the frame of the device. The operator then uses the lever to lift the load off the ground. To lower the load, the operator simply releases the lever.

Lever blocks are commonly used in construction, mining, and manufacturing applications. They are often used to lift heavy loads such as engines, machinery, and equipment. Lever blocks are also used to move heavy loads from one location to another.
