Product advantages

  • Thanks to their modular construction, the units are suitable for upgrade to greater load capacities.
  • TVariable load-bearing capacities are available on request
  • TA high-performance precision gearbox ensures that the force which has to be applied to raise the load with the hand chain is kept as low as possible.
  • TAs an option an overload limiter is available which limits the degree the hoist is overloaded and increases the safety of the user by means of the integrated slip clutch mechanism. When an excessive overload is detected, the slip clutch engages. The load remains stationary and cannot be lifted anymore regardless of any additional hand force applied.


  • Capacities ranging from 500 kg to 50 t
  • Double reduction gearing requires minimum manual power to operate
  • Fourfold safety margin of the gearing parts under full load according to EN 13157
  • Standard lifting height is either 3 m or 3.5 m, variable lifting heights depending on your individual needs are also available on enquiry
  • Double casing for protection against dust and water
  • Safe, reliable mechanical brake activates instantly and holds the load securely
  • Articulating top hook allows you to properly centre the load
  • Forged carbon steel hook with a wide opening will not fracture under excessive load
  • Chain guide: silent and easy operation
  • Sealed gears and brake protected against damage from dust and water
  • Open load sheave allows easy inspection and cleaning without dismantling the unit
  • Maintenance-free sealed bearings increase reliability and reduce the pull required to lift loads
  • Double-pawl spring system for increased safety and reliability
  • Abrasion resistant nickel-plated load chain for high and uniform strength (1000 N/mm2), in accordance with standard DIN EN 818-7
Hängekran Anwendung
