What’s more it can be carried in a belt pouch (available separately on request) for added convenience. This great little device can be used for lifting, pulling and tensioning applications wherever you need it thanks to its easy portability. They will make an exceptional addition any tool box.
The LX ratchet lever hoist comes in 2 lifting capacities, 250kg and 500kg, so although they are really small they can still pack a punch when it comes to handling heavy objects.
Kito LX Ratchet Lever Hoist Features
The nickel plated load chain has a fine tolerance which enables very precise lifting or pulling movements, each click of the lever will move the chain and therefore load by just 2mm at a time. Another bonus is the length of the operating lever, at just 150mm it needs little effort to use and is ideal for use in tight spaces. There is also a chain over-run mechanism with added load drop protection.
There is a free wheel mode to enable the chain to be pulled through unhindered to allow easier attachment of the load. If a load is attached when in this mode the brake will automatically be applied.
The Kito LX has an aluminium housing and is corrosion resistant and maintenance friendly making it really durable. The top and bottom hooks incorporate a safety latch and there is small headroom between the hooks at 205mm.
Both the 250kg and the 500kg models are available with either 1.5 metres or 3 metres height of lift although other lengths may be available to suit your needs on request.
