Lifting Gear Direct can supply the three models of Kito electric hoists available; these are the ED, the EQ, and the ER, with top working load limits of 480kg, 1000kg & 20000kg respectively. This vast range of lifting capacities easily identifies the many and varied lifting applications that are possible with a Kito electric chain hoist. Leading the way in lifting equipment in Japan with Kito you can be assured of tried and tested quality products.
Each of the 3 Kito electric hoist models boasts something different, the Kito ED electric hoist is lightweight, the Kito EQ electric hoist is compact with a variable speed, and the big, heavy duty Kito ER electric hoist has options of an inverter for dual speeds or for single speeds a contactor control; there are also many extra options available to further enhance these Kito electric hoist systems.
For a light, efficient electric chain hoist, the ED is an ideal choice. It can cope with capacities of up to 480kg, but is just as at home with loads weighing as little as 60kg, delivering the same consistent performance in all conditions. Safelifting features include an integrated slip clutch that will kick in to avoid disasters if the hoist is overloaded. The dual brake system gives you even more peace of mind, while the high quality bearings allow it to work while producing minimal noise.
The next step up in the range of electric chain hoist options from this manufacturer, the EQ not only doubles the load capacity of the ED but adds a number of other new features. It is built to cope with regular heavy-duty lift cycles and is tough enough to withstand plenty of punishment. Its IP55 rating allows it to prevent dust and liquids from doing damage to the internal components. Easy to use pendant controls put operators in charge with precision. And with an integrated inverter, it will activate its high speed mode when no load is detected to boost performance and improve productivity.
The ER is the most comprehensive series of electric chain hoist models currently offered by this manufacturer. It consists of models with capacities of just 125kg, while the range-topping unit is powerful enough to take on 20,000kg loads. You can avoid manual handling risks with this range.
With two operating speeds and an inverter, the ER hoists can start lifting or lowering in a calm, reliable manner. When loads come to a stop, they will do so with a gentle touch, not a jerk, so swaying is minimised.
Safety features such as the emergency stop button and the electromagnetic brake ensure that there are failsafe features in place. And like its siblings, the ER series electric chain hoist is designed to make maintenance tasks less complex. An access panel lets you check up on key components and run through regular repairs and replacements in no time. This lets you get each ER model back up and running if something goes wrong unexpectedly.
