About the Kito LB Lever Hoist
ratchet lever hoist has a patented, induction hardening process applied to the load bearing parts. Together with the double reduction gearing both the size and weight of the hoist have been reduced but its strength has been increased. This also means that transportation is easier and so is its operation, furthermore less manual hand power is required.
The LB lever hoist incorporates a free wheeling mode with added overload protection. This enables the chain to be pulled through quickly for faster load attachment. Due to its design, the load will not be dropped even if the free wheel mode is activated accidentally. This mode is activated by pulling out the freewheel knob rather than flicking over a lever like most other hoists of this type. Therefore the hoist is safer.
The body of the hoist is made from quality steel and the hooks are forged carbon steel which will not fracture. The load chain has been nickel plated for corrosion resistance.
