The LX lever hoist is great for more delicate positioning applications such as bringing two parts very close together for connecting. They are also good in car garages and workshops; in fact this extra compact lever hoist can be used pretty much anywhere especially as it is very light and easy to carry around. There are 2 models in the LX range of lever hoists, the 250kg model which weighs just 1.7kg and the 500kg model which weighs in at 2.7kg.
Because the load chain is just 3.2 mm on the smaller model and 4.3mm on the largest the movements are very precise, so whether lifting or pulling each lever click is just 2mm. Also the handle is rather short at 150mm which makes it easy to operate even in cramped places.
The LX ratchet lever hoist boasts a chain overrun device with load-drop protection. If the hoist is in freewheel mode and a load is suddenly attached the brake will operate immediately. There is minimal risk of accidental free-wheeling whilst under load. A further benefit to this lever hoist is that it is corrosion resistant and maintenance friendly.
As an optional extra you can purchase a specially designed carry case for the Kito LX lever hoist; it can be attached to your belt and/or work utility trouser loops giving you the convenience of carrying it with you around the workplace or whilst out working on site.
The standard length of chain issued with the LX is 1.5 metres, but let us know your needs and we can customize the chain length for you.
