The single fixed pulley

The single fixed pulley

This is often used for the purpose of raising small loads contained in a bucket basket to the top of a building during construction or repair work (Fig. 8.3). In this case, although the effort applied is equal to the load raised, we obtain the greater convenience and ease of being able to stand on the ground and pull downwards, instead of having to haul the load upwards from the top of the building.
