With the lever hoist LB-OF (without freewheel chain adjusting mechanism) KITO EUROPE extends its product portfolio by another safety variant where the freewheeling mechanism is generally deactivated.
A key consideration in the product design for KITO was the safety aspect. This also bears fruit in the outward appearance of the hoist. As a visually recognizable difference to the Lever Hoist Series LB, which has an ocre-coloured freewheel knob, the LB OF is fitted with a blue knob that shows that this hoist is equipped without a freewheeling function. A change in the lifting height can then only be adjusted by operating the lever.
Especially for complicated and dangerous applications where dynamic forces can occur, for instance in overhead line construction, the KITO Lever Hoist particularly the LB-OF is a suitable and safe installation aid. Furthermore the hoist proves advantageous in aircraft production and maintenance where slippage of the load during the fitting or removal of aircraft parts such as engines or turbines could have incalculable consequences including huge costs or delays.
Beyond that the LB-OF offers all of the various advantanges of the KITO Lever Hoist Series LB.
