The compact one with power from the wall socket

The KITO Electric Chain Hoist Series ED is unsurpassed in its versatility. Anywhere a 220 – 240 V AC connection is available this KITO ED III hoist can be used immediately.
That may, for example, be in smaller workshops and building sites and in storage areas, but, the electric chain hoist is also a dependable tool in dispatch, where larger cardboard packages have to be lifted. Furthermore this small hoist has been tested and has become practically indispensable for the transport of loads inside wind turbine towers.

The unit is designed for loads from 60 – 240 kg. Because of its light weight it can be quickly and individually deployed at different places. The gear casing is made from aluminium and is resistant to weathering and rust.
But heavier loads of up to 480 kg also present no problem. An optional upgrade set, consisting of upper hook, lower block and a longer chain, can be ordered. The upgrade can be carried out quickly and easily. With the corresponding type plate, the ED may then be used with a double chain for higher loads.
This also gives the advantage of a range of load capacities dependent on the lifting speed. In the load capacity range from 60 to 160 kg, the maximum speed is up to 20 m/min. There are also two motor variants, a DC motor with 300 W for the load capacity ranges 60, 100 and 180 kg, and a larger variant with 600-W output for load capacities up to 160, 240 or, with a double chain, up to 480 kg. Safety features include a high-performance mechanical brake with a friction clutch and an upper lift limit switch for increased safety.
The standard equipment includes a plastic chain box for 3 or 6 m lifting height. For lifting heights up to 15, 30 and 70 m, a canvas container is used, while a special receptacle is required for greater heights. As options, the system offers the mini-trolley TMH 25, a plain trolley or a geared trolley up to 500 kg.
