  • Maximum quality through special manufacturing processes
  • High mechanical efficiency due to optimal guidance of the gears
  • Very long service life due to premium components
Proven safety

01. More than standard

CB High Speed
Increased productivity and work efficiency
CB High Speed Manual Chain Hoist
A 7-fold increase in lifting or lowering speed compared to the standard speed - this is what the KITO CB High Speed stands for. The automatic magnetic coupling technology reliably switches from normal to fast operation. It is available from 2,500 kg and is predestined for very high lifting capacities.
Durable and safe
CB Mining Offshore
Our CB Mining Offshore hand chain hoist is characterised by its 2-stage precision gearbox for low manual operating force. Enclosed maintenance-free ball bearings protect against dust and moisture. Cap nuts are used for optimum protection of the threads on the housing. Two pawls, each with a double pawl spring, are an additional safety device. Equipped with overload protection (OLL) as standard.
Protected against sparking
CB Hand Chain Hoist Explosion Proof (ATEX)
Relevant mechanical parts, both inside and outside the chain hoist, are provided with a special coating that protects against sparks. Enhanced with unique and reliable bronze coated load hooks.
With low headroom
SHB Manual cat
Sometimes there just isn't enough room above a load to use a standard hoist. Where others cannot reach, the low-headroom combination of hoist and trolley SHB is used. Designed as a single unit, the SHB combines the proven performance and durability of KITO's standard CB hand chain hoist with a permanently mounted, industrial-grade hand-operated trolley.

02. Your benefits​

Overload protection
Increased security
Overload protection
The optionally available overload protection device (OLL) is a slip clutch mechanism that prevents the action of excessive load on the product. In case of excessive load, the slipping clutch is activated and lifting is no longer possible, the load can only be lowered safely. For you, this means greater safety and prevention of product damage.
Gearbox housing
Robust, more robust, KITO CB
Gearbox housing
The impact-resistant, double-walled gear housing protects against deformation and damage. The heavy-duty cover design is secured with three close tolerance bolts for secure positioning of the gears and pinion shaft. The components are aligned so that the gears, pinion shaft and chain can run smoothly. Is it also important to you that the product is not too loud during use? No problem! Due to the unique bearing in the gear housing, the gear train is guided, accurately fitting, stable and therefore quiet.
High performance load brake
Safety beyond borders
Robust high performance load pressure brake
The high-performance load pressure brake with a brake disc thickness of 3.0 mm ensures high durability and intensity as well as performance. The KITO CB stands out for its reliability and takes the physical strain off the operator. For you, this means: higher safety, less wear, longer service life and durability - thus lower maintenance costs.
Precision gearbox
Top quality through special manufacturing processes
Precision gearbox
All gear wheels and the load pinion are forged, machined and then heat-treated. This ensures maximum resistance and material strength.
DGUV-GS tested
Tested safety since 2007
DGUV-GS tested
The GS certificate for "Tested Safety" has been recognised worldwide as a safety mark for years. The seal is only awarded to products that undergo voluntary quality control and comply with the legal requirements of the German Product Safety Act (ProdSG). The KITO CB and CX Manual Chain Hoists and the KITO LB and LX Lever Hoists have been awarded the GS-label "Tested Safety" mark by the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) since 2007.
Planetary gear
CB High Speed
Planetary gear
The planetary gear ensures 7-fold lifting speed in load-free operation (up to a maximum of 10% of the nominal load). The braking function is separated from the planetary gear to ensure complete safety. The operating forces at full load comply with CB standard specifications.
Lock pawls
CB Mining Offshore
Double pawl springs
Large cast pawls with two robust pawl springs, with which a higher degree of safety - in case of spring breakage - is achieved.
Load chain
Corrosion-resistant and low-wear
Nickel-plated load chain
KITO is the only manufacturer in the world that nickel-plates its load chain electrolessly. The KITO high quality load chain protects against mechanical damage. The quality class T, version V 1000 N/mm² is above the minimum requirement of 800 N/mm². The symbiosis of hoist and chain ensures the best possible safety, durability and efficiency. The load chain is characterized by a special surface hardness and the prevention of hydrogen embrittlement. It is corrosion-resistant, durable and low-wear and can withstand operating temperatures from -40 °C to +200 °C.

03. A bit more needed?​

HD3C Handycat rolling and reeling undercarriage with revolutionary 3-shaft system adapts to a wide range of flange widths in a snap. All components are electrically galvanised and offer a particularly high level of corrosion protection. If required, also available in explosion-proof version (ATEX).

The reliability, smoothness and safety of your hoist depends on the trolley. Heat-treated steel wheels, sealed bearings and a low turning radius are just some of the advantages of KITO's TSG reel trolley.
Learn more
The KITO TSP plain trolley is used wherever a lifting movement is to be performed linearly to the beam. The TSP Plain Trolley effortlessly bridge larger travel distances with loads of up to 5,000 kg. Different capacities can be realized at any time according to your individual needs.

The TK Beam Clamp is available in a wide range of load capacities from 1,000 kg to 10,000 kg and is adjustable to the most common beam types. For wide I-beams, extra wide versions are available for 3,000 kg and 5,000 kg capacities. In addition, the beam clamp can be used both as a stop point and as a load handling device.

Our CB hand chain hoist is also available with stainless steel load hook, chain and hand chain. The resulting increased corrosion resistance makes it suitable for harsh environments and those where cleanliness and reliability are required.

04. Everywhere in use​

The CB proves its unmatched traction in the most extreme conditions. Exceptional, high-quality components make it a durable workhorse that can withstand extreme temperatures of -40 ˚C and truly harsh winters.
