    HOIST SPECIFICATIONS

    Coffing Lever Hoists are made of the best selected materials to provide long dependableservice for users. Coffing Lever Hoists are manufactured and processed through up to datestreamlined production facilities by skilled engineers under strict quality control. All leverhoists are tested per ASME B30.21 before leaving our factory. Refer to the back cover forCertification Statement.

    APPLICATION INFORMATION1. Inspect carefully for any damage that may occur during shipping. Check for loose,

    missing, or damaged parts.

    2. Lubricate the load chain along the whole length with machine oil (See Figure 2).

    3. Examine the load chain to ensure that there is no twist.When your lever hoist is a 6 tonthat lifts on 2 falls of load chains, twists can arise from the bottom hook being accidentallyturned over through the load chains (See Figure 3).

    4. Confirm that the supporting structure is strong enough to support the full rated capacityof the lever hoist with a generous factor of safety.

    SAFETY INFORMATION

    1. Keep the load within the rated capacity marked on the hoists lever. An excess load maylead to an accident. The lever hoist is overloaded when the handle effort indicated in thestandard specifications is exceeded (See Table 1).

    2. Before operating, lift and lower the load about 4" and test the brake system. Ineffectivebraking may lead to an accident.

    3. Loads must be lifted as slowly as possible. Load swinging and abrupt shocks will imposeon the lever hoist excessive burdens that may more than double the weight of the load.

    4. Extreme temperatures will affect the durability of the lever hoist. In subzerotemperatures loads must be lifted and lowered very slowly and carefully.

    5. When hooking, the load must be applied squarely to the center of the hook and thehook must not come loose during operation. NEVER USE THE HOOK DIRECTLY ON ALOAD (See Figure 4).Use the attachments as shown in Figure 5.

    Figures 6 through 9 show improper hooking methods, which may cause the hook toelongate or bend. These hooking methods may also obstruct the load chain flow to the loadsheave and prevent the lever hoist from operating properly.

    6. Never run the chain out too far. When the lever hoist is run out beyond the range of lift, adangerous excessive load will be imposed on the load chain, stop grip and gearing.

    7. The selector lever must be set to the UP position when the lever hoist is under a loadduring hoisting or pulling.

    8. Lifting a load with two lever hoists is not recommended. If the job is unavoidable, keep theload well within the total rated capacity of each lever hoist to avoid overloading one orboth of the hoists; lift with exceptional care while maintaining proper balance, angle andlifting speed.

    9. Do not throw or drop the lever hoist from high places; do not drag the lever hoist intransportation. Doing so may cause damage that may lead to an accident.

    10. Never leave or store the lever hoist with the brake system locked. Loosen the brakesystem by operating the lever hoist as if lowering a load.

    11. Always service and repair the lever hoist after use.Thoroughly clean the dust or if used inthe rain, wipe off the dirt and moisture and lubricate the lever hoist to prevent rust.

    12. Inspect the hooks and load chain for bends and any other types of defects. Also checkto see if the hooks rotate. If any defect is found, replace the defective component beforeusing the lever hoist again.

    OPERATION

    HOISTING (PULLING) AND LOWERING (RELEASING) (Figure 1)

    1. Hoisting (Pulling)

    Set the selector lever to the UP position. Take up the slacked load chain by turning theguide handle clockwise. Next, manipulate the operating handle clockwise.

    2. Lowering (Releasing)

    Set the selector lever to the DOWN position. Manipulate the operating handlecounterclockwise. When there is no load on the lever hoist, the load chain can be slackedby turning the guide handle counterclockwise.

    FREE-CHAINING (Figure 1)

    This operation is for making quick large adjustments of the load chain length without load.Set the selector lever to the N position and pull the load chain out in the desired direction.

    Free-chaining will not be possible during the following conditions:1. When the lever hoist is under a load.

    2. When the guide handle is in contact with something and not rotating freely.

    3. When the brake has locked from a large or abrupt load:Turn the guide handle 45 counterclockwise to unlockthe brake.

    4. When the brake is locked:The brake can be unlocked by setting the selector lever to the DOWN position andmanipulating the operating handle counterclockwise.

    RESETTING (Figure 1)

    The lever hoist will automatically change from the free-chaining condition to the brakelocked condition when a load is applied. Apply the load with one of the following twomethods:

    a. Turn the guide handle clockwise until the brake locks from the force of the load.

    b. Pull firmly on the stop grip until the brake locks from the force of the load (See Photo 1).

    Next, turn the selector lever to the UP position and hoist or pull by manipulating theoperating handle.

    MAINTENANCE

    The lever hoist is designed and made to withstand heavy-duty materials handlingoperations, but wear and damage are unavoidable after a long period of use and dependingon the place and method of use.This is why we suggest that your company or workshopadapt a periodic inspection program for the lever hoist.

    1. Never leave the lever hoist in a damp environment or damp weather such as rain. Alwaysstore the lever hoist in a dry airy area.

    2. Proper lubrication will help lengthen the life of the lever hoist. Before storing, check to seeif the lever hoist is well lubricated. Be especially sure that the moving parts such as gearsand bearings are well lubricated.

    LOAD CHAIN

    Load chains worn-out or elongated beyond the permissible dimensions must be replaced atonce. Replace the entire load chain immediately even if one link of the load chain isextensively worn-out, elongated or damaged.

    HOOKS

    If the hook opening is elongated beyond the permissible dimension, the hook isdangerously deformed and must be replaced at...
