Our KITO ER2 Electric Chain Hoist is an all-rounder and is suitable for the toughest conditions. High performance, durability and robustness are not foreign words to him. The ER2 is available in extensive load capacities, variants and options.
  • For applications under extreme conditions – powerful, durable and robust
  • Extensive load capacities, variants and options possible – available with contactor control or with a high-quality frequency converter at two lifting speeds
  • Easy to maintain – disassembly for servicing can be carried out quickly and without special tools

01. More than standard

ER2 Limit Lock
Individually programmable stroke limitation
ER2 Limit Lock Electric Chain Hoist
Upper/lower limit switch for the end positions as standard. Freely selectable limit switches for lifting and lowering, directly and easily programmable via the control switch. Before reaching the set position, the lifting speed is automatically reduced.
ER2 Stepless Speed
Variable speed control
ER2 Stepless Speed Electric Chain Hoist
Speed freely selectable by the special stepless push button. Made possible by our particularly powerful KITO ER2 electronic thermal relay.
ER2 Second-Step Variable
Individual acceleration rate & stroke speed
ER2 Second-Step Variable
ER2 Second-Step Variable with variable stroke speed in the second stage. The KITO ER2 can be operated at will between the low and maximum speed. To return to the 1st stage or slower speed, the pushbutton must be released completely and pressed again.
For food/beverage/pharmaceutical industry
FER2 Foodgrade Electric Chain Hoist
FER2 electric chain hoist with optional epoxy paint coating, motorized trolley, stainless steel load hook, nickel-plated chain stopper, chain spring and limit plate, and stainless steel chain container.
CDER2 with cylinder control
With ergonomic cylindrical handle
CDER2 Electric Chain Hoist with cylinder control
Quick and convenient to use. Control of the lifting and lowering process with only one hand. With ergonomic cylinder control and frequency converter for two lifting speeds (dual).
Little space, no problem
SHER2M Electric Chain Hoist short design
When height becomes a problem. The KITO SHER2M Electric Chain Hoist is characterised by its extremely short design and is equipped with a high-quality electronic thermal relay, which ensures precise placement of the load.
Safe and synchronous lifting
TWER2M Electric Chain Hoist with two load strands
The KITO TWER2M Electric Chain Hoist with two load strands is used wherever exact adherence to the horizontal or simultaneous lifting and lowering of loads is required. The synchronous movement processes can already be realised with just one pull thanks to the double hooks.

02. Your benefits​

Electronic thermal relay
To the desired speed
High quality electronic thermal relay
Our high quality electronic thermal relay from ER2 achieves precise placement of the load and defies harsh environmental conditions. Due to the smooth starting drive, it ensures very low chain wear and thus increases the service life of the load chain. Looking for more highlights? Individually adjustable stroke speed is just as much a standard feature as an operating hour/load cycle counter and the memory function of a fault diagnosis.
Electromagnetic brake
With improved performance and safety
Electromagnetic brake
KITO's electromagnetic brake is intrinsically safe. This means that the brake only opens when the motor is operated. If the motor cannot be started for any reason, the brake always remains closed. In other words a malfunction is not possible! Your added value? The brake provides guaranteed safety, opens and closes the brake with a fast response time and prevents or reduces brake wear. Guaranteed two million load cycles are the proof.
Reason to complain?
Warranty of 36 months
The warranty claim must always be made in writing. Kito Europe GmbH provides a template for this purpose. Prerequisite for the recognition of a warranty claim: see General Conditions.
Friction clutch
Prevention of product damage due to overload
Carbon friction clutch
Consistent performance even under extreme temperature conditions. An overload protection device to interrupt the power transmission from the motor to protect the chain hoist from overload.
Load chain pinion
Fast and easy maintenance
Newly developed load chain pinion
KITO's newly designed load chain sprocket, has five chain pockets to prevent vibration and improve durability (six pockets for small loads). Fast and easy maintenance, smooth and quiet operation, less wear and tear on the load chain.
Push button switch
Ergonomic and easy operation
Push button switch
Ergonomic and user-friendly control switch protection class IP 65. Robust, simple operation and mechanically interlocked buttons.
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 advantages of this process are higher corrosion resistance and lower wear compared to conventional load chains. The nickel-plated load chain grade T, DAT 800 N/mm² is standard on our electric chain hoists.

03. A bit more needed?​

Adjustable starting and braking ramps (electronic thermal relay), adjustable travel speeds (electronic thermal relay), single or double travel speed (single/dual).
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 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
Our ER2 Electric Chain Hoist is also available with load hook and load chain made of stainless steel as well as a stainless steel chain container. The resulting increased corrosion resistance makes it suitable for harsh environments and those where cleanliness and reliability are required.

04. Everywhere in use​

Our KITO ER2 Electric Chain Hoist is an all-rounder and is suitable for the toughest conditions. High performance, durability and robustness are not foreign words to him. The ER2 is available in a wide range of load capacities, variants, options and is therefore perfect for all applications.
