When it comes to lifting and lowering loads, chain blocks (also commonly referred to as chain pulley blocks, a block and tackle, or chain hoists) are a fantastic tool for giving yourself the means to handle and manoeuvre loads efficiently and safely.
A chain block uses mechanical gearing to reduce the effort of the user to lift the load. A chain block comprises of a load chain fitted with a hook, safety catch and a hand or pulley chain that’s used to operate the hoisting mechanism.

When you’re trying to decide what material handling equipment is best for getting a task done, it’s important to know the right titles to discuss your different options. When it comes to material handling, some equipment names are used interchangeably, particularly when items have similar features or are used for similar purposes.
Two of the most common repeat offenders for this misnaming confusion is dolly and trolley. Possibly because they sound the same, people often use the terms trolley and dolly interchangeably, but is there a difference between the two?
If you are in possession of (or are planning on purchasing) any battery powered material handling equipment such as a forklift or an electric pallet truck, it’s important that you know how to maintain your equipment properly. Proper battery maintenance is the best way to ensure that your equipment runs smoothly and has a long life.
The importance of proper battery maintenance cannot be understated - failure to maintain your battery correctly can cause battery failure. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the battery is properly maintained and serviced, so it’s important you know how to do so correctly.
