Kito ED Electric Hoist

The Kito Ed electric hoist is a series of compact and lightweight, high speed hoists. Because they are light and compact they are much easier to transport and handle when compared to other makes.

These hoists are available in a range of models which include single speed models, dual speed models and a cylinder type, tool handling model. Low voltage options are also available. Lifting capacities come in increments from 60kg up to 480kg and so can be utilised for many day to day lifting tasks. 

Key Features of the Kito ED Electric Hoist

The main body of the Kito ED is made from die-cast aluminium; it is this which essentially makes it light in weight. Designed with low headroom in mind the Kito ED is easy to install and use even in the tightest of spaces.

These hoists incorporate a heavy duty motor with 300-600W. A compact DC motor including an AC rectifier ensures low heat generation whilst maintaining duty cycles.

The load brake has an in-built friction clutch for optimum safety. This will slip in the case or overloading or over winding to prevent damage. The braking system also boasts dual brakes and uses both regenerative and mechanical ones, this ensures maximum safety. The upper limit switches also add to the safety of the Kito ED electric hoist.

The oil bath immersed ball & needle bearings ensure smooth running and low noise operation.

The dual speed models can have the speed adjusted from 0 to 100% of the maximum speed. This is done via a special setting screw which is located inside the push button switch. The cylinder control, tool handling model incorporates a soft touch rocker switch just above the hand grip. This enables quick changes from high to low speeds. In addition there is a turn able knob which enables customisable speed control settings.
