With the SHB (Short Headroom Block) KITO EUROPE has created one of the shortest trolleys offered on the market to date. With a hook dimension of only 115 mm, in the one ton load capacity range, this hoist permits its use also in extremely reduced spaces with low head rooms. The trolley with cast trolley wheels distinguishes itself by its swift and reliable operation.
As customers were repeatedly facing the problem of there being absolutely no more headroom
for upward movement, KITO responded to the needs of its customers and the market and
developed a chain hoist with ultra-low headroom. As with the other KITO products the focus
was directed at functionality bearing in mind the technical requirements of the individual customer.
Closer investigation showed that the problem of restricted lifting height often arose, for
example, where machines had to be lifted for maintenance purposes, but the extremely small
space between the machine and the ceiling did not permit this. Another application is in the
paper industry, to shorten the down time needed for essential maintenance work and to get
production going again quickly. The short trolley is permanently installed, so it is always
available for this purpose. Naturally, there are various other application problems which could be solved with the short trolley SHB.
The basic unit is a hand chain hoist, the well-known model M3 from the CB Series.
The SHB works with two load chain falls. Four falls are only needed for the load capacities
of 7.5 t and 10 t. The basic unit has an impact-resistant gear housing, double ratchet springs,
a precision gearbox and double casing for protection against dust and water, a safe and
reliable load pressure braking system, load chain guidance and a nickel-plated load chain
for long service life.
In short, its easy handling, long service life and reliability make the short trolley SHB the obvious choice.
