CF aluminium body

Extremely resistant – also in agressive environments – the KITO CF

The KITO CF is a manual chain hoist with an extremely robust closed Aluminium die-cast body that particularly features a long service life and reliability. This also suggests its special areas of application, since the CF is mainly used where there is exposure to aggressive environments. Thus you will find this hoist in operation in industry sectors like heavy construction, maintenance operations, repair and refurbishment, piping installation, and similar applications. For the user this means significant time and cost savings, an increase in productivity and a considerably smaller workload.

KITO’s CF is CE marked and conforms to all applicable machinery directives. The product offering covers 500 kg – 3 t capacities, in the lift lengths of 3 and 6 meters. Weighting just up to 28 kg the CF stands up for its ease of handling und portability.
The KITO CF is unique with its single reduction gearing that results in lifting speeds up to 28 % faster than typical manual chain hoists. Moreover it is built with double pawl springs, and heavy duty heat-treated pinion and gears. The gear shafts with ball bearings minimize the friction forces so that the pulling forces from the user on the hand chain reaches the load without some of it being lost. This optimized force transmission guarantees ease of operation.
The hoist is also extremely maintenance-friendly. Only four screws have to be removed to gain access to the gearing, the load chain pinion and the braking mechanism. So maintenance can be carried out quickly and precisely.
Like all KITO chain hoists, the CF comes standard with highly corrosion resistant KITO brand grade 100 load chain. The chain is nickel plated and has an ultra-smooth surface that results in reduced link-to-link wear, and increased lifetime.
