The small one with undoubted benefits

With the ultralight and compact ratchet hoists of the KITO LX Series, demanding tasks like fastening, fixing and positioning of loads in the light-load range can be solved easily and effectively.
The LX is designed for loads of 250 kg and 500 kg, respectively. The ratchet hoist is mainly used where delicate parts have to be joined together: for example, in apparatus installation, where control cabinets are to be connected and have to be brought within a few millimeters of each other, or in the automobile workshop, for fitting and removing engines or for fitting engines and gearboxes together. This ultra-compact ratchet hoist can be used almost anywhere.
