Yale D85 C85 Pul-Lift (Lever-Hoists) - Kito LB lever hoists - Tiger Shark Sub Sea Hoist

yale lever hoist, pul lift The Yale Pul-Lift is an extremely tough and reliable lever hoist first produced in 1936.

The enclosed housing with housing cover, handlever and lower block are made from high tensile white malleable cast iron for overall rugged construction. This makes it ideal for heavy lifting and harsh environments.

The Yale Pul-Lift and Kito LB series are on demonstration in The Lifting Tackle Store for you to try before you buy or hire. Lever hoists are fully repaired and refurbished in our lifting appliance repair centre.

Tiger SS11 Subsea Lever Hoist

The SS11 has been designed and developed over a number of years for use primarily in the Subsea environment. The design and anti-corrosion features incorporated in the SS11 hoist range give it significant safety advantages over standard lever hoists, making the hoist the ideal tool for all Marine and extreme applications.

Main Features -

Range from 800kg – 10000kg

*NEW* Twin Cam shaped pawl design

Proven track record

Double switch brake mechanism

Marine specific friction discs

Meets and exceeds IMCA DO28 Rev 1 guidance notes for offshore lever hoists

Light load protection at 2% of the rated capacity

Anti-corrosive protection to ensure reliable long term use

*NEW* external corrosion protection

Adaptable to use both inverted and horizontally

Brake chamber protection from outside contamination

High performance premium grease

Stainless steel fixings and fasteners

-50°C to +50°C Operating temperature range

*NEW* adjustable chain end anchorage

Developed initially with the goal of giving key stakeholders within the Oil and Gas Industry a hoist that could be certified for safe use Subsea whilst meeting all the requirements of IMCA DO28 Rev. 1 "Guidance notes for offshore lever hoists" the SS11 meets and exceeds these requirements, as well as conforming to standards such as BS EN 13157:2004 and ASME B30.21-2005.

Double Brake:

The SS11 comes with a unique dual brake mechanism that automatically engages when the lever hoist feels the slightest resistance on the bottom hook. This key feature means that the SS11 will raise, hold and lower the lightest of loads without slipping. The two stage process protects against accidental light load failures by putting the hoist into neutral whilst under load.

Light Load Protection:

The unique brake system designed for the SS11 guarantees a light load protection at 2% of the rated capacity. 

Cam Type Brake Pawls:

This latest development in brake efficiency guarantees permanent engagement of at least one of the twin reciprocating cam pawls fitted to the SS11, ensuring the pawl only just clears the ratchet wheel, with the minimum of clearance as required under BS 4898:1973. But most importantly, in the unlikely event of a pawl spring failure, this new design will ensure the brake is still fully functional and the load is sustained without damage to the mechanism.

Anti-Corrosion Protection:

Critical internal components are protected by our OCP (Organic Compound Protection) finish giving unprecedented long term reliability. OCP has been proven to be effective through 1000 hours of the ASTM B117 Salt Spray Test. The SS11 is NOW externally finished with our own anti-corrosion finish giving the SS11 body over 1000 hours of protection under the same test criteria, whilst maintaining a high degree of impact protection.

Marine Friction Discs:

Developed and designed for Subsea use creating a highly efficient, reliable braking surface for use in the most extreme conditions.

Brake Chamber Protection:

Precisely engineered side plates and components are protected by a full gasket giving the SS11 brake chamber and contents maximum protection from external contamination.

Chain Guide:

Specifically designed to guide the load chain safely onto or off the load sheave without snagging or jamming, the fluted chain stripper allows the safe use of the SS11 when used in any orientation.

Load Protection:

Security of the load is achieved by full engagement of the heavy duty spring latch into the recessed nose of the hook safeguarding the load when side loading of the latch occurs.

High Performance Premium Grease:

Load carrying ability, mechanical stability, corrosion protection, water resistance and increased operating temperature ranges are all improved by the using only the very best lubricant.

Overload protection:

Designed for maximum safety, comfort, efficiency and ease of use, the operator friendly Hammerhead handle prevents the use of unauthorised extension bars overloading the SS11


Drop forged and heat treated alloy hooks are furnished with heavy duty latch kits that fully engage into the nose of the hook offering maximum load security. The swivel hooks are attached to the yoke using high grade nuts & bolts allowing for complete inspection during any statutory inspection or written scheme maintenance. Recessed forgings offer full protection to the load chain anchor bolts on all our bottom hooks.

Chain end anchorage:

Tiger have incorporated the ultimate safeguarding of a single point failure mode as described in IMCA DO28 Rev. 1 Note 7.2 by installing a new specially designed adjustable chain end stop profiled to fit the contours of the hoist body. This offers complete assurance to the operator, whilst maintaining the flexibility of “freewheeling” the chain to any required starting position.


The SS11 lever hoist has undergone a full test program that includes:

Type Testing

  • Ultimate strength test, at least 4 times the Working load limit (WLL)
  • Chain end anchorage test, passing at least 4 times the WLL without any restriction of the brake or gears

Test on every hoist

  • Proof loading at 1.5 times the rated capacity
  • Light load testing at maximum of 2% rated capacity

Salt Spray – Submersion Test Programme:

The SS11 range of hoists has successfully been type tested to over 700 hours continuous exposure to an industry generated test programme that was specifically drawn up and agreed upon by a group of independent professionals incorporating ASTM B117 environmental conditions. This programme included over 50 individual load tests on the same hoist of varying weights at various timescales, to fully challenge the SS11.
