Lifting gear distributor Certex UK has secured exclusive distribution rights in the UK for the Bulldog chain block, made by Hoisting Equipment Services of Australia.

Certex sales and marketing director Charles Gillespie claimed: “The product is unique in that it takes the best features from existing chain blocks and rolls them into one. It is designed to take maximum load with minimum effort and requires surprisingly little headroom.” Lifting capacities range from 500kg up to 20t. The blocks come with an alloy load chain, fully machined lift wheel and cast steel safety catches as standard. With prices starting at £88 ($130), Certex claims it is the strongest and most affordable chain block of its type.
