Types of Wheel Pulleys

Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys do not move and are often used to change the direction of a force.

Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys can move along with the load and provide a mechanical advantage in lifting.

Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage even further.

Examples of Usage

  • Fixed pulleys are commonly found in flagpoles.
  • Movable pulleys are used in elevators for lifting heavy loads.
  • Compound pulleys are preferred in construction for lifting materials to higher levels.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys

Increased Mechanical Advantage

Wheel pulleys provide leverage to lift heavier loads with less effort.

Energy Efficiency

Using wheel pulleys reduces the amount of energy required to move heavy objects.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting

Regular Maintenance

Regular lubrication and inspection are essential to keep wheel pulleys running smoothly.


Common problems like worn-out bearings can be troubleshooted by replacing parts.

Advantages of Wheel Pulleys

Increased Load Capacity

Wheel pulleys can handle heavier loads compared to manual lifting.
