Our manual chain hoists and manual lever pullers are an excellent choice in any environment where electricity is impractical or not available. Without electronics, they are also an economical solution when you don't need to lift every day. With a load range of ¼ ton to 20 tons, our manual hoists are sure to cover your lifting needs.
Hand-operated and still safe and long-lasting
A dual Pawl Weston-style brake with 2 friction discs provides 4 braking surfaces. The compact design means reduced weight, which makes loads easier and safer to handle. The KM2 even includes an overload limiter.
One of the reasons our manual hoists and lever pullers are so safe is their durability. Alloy steel chains are galvanized for corrosion resistance. The brake is enclosed to protect against dirt. An open chain path allows simple inspection and cleaning.
In addition, our hoists and lever pullers fully comply with the demanding international standards required by ASME B30.
Manual chain hoists and lever pullers adapting to your needs
Wehave four kinds of manual hoists: the KL and KLP Manual Lever Pullers, the KM Series II Manual Chain Hoist, and the Army style hand chain block hoist. Choose a hand geared chain trolley or manual push trolley, which both allow for low headroom. You can also install our hoists into your existing equipment.
Depending on the model, standard lift ranges from 1.5 meters to 3 meters, with options for non-standard lifts as well. Compact size and light weight means you can easily use your hoist in many locations. The KL and KLP manual lever pullers are able to operate in tight spaces with 360º handle rotation.
We also have manual hoists for hazardous environments.
Our CLX and SLX chain hoists are designed for flexibility and durability in industrial applications and demanding workstation use. With a load range from 60 kg to 5,000 kg, they are extremely versatile.
CLX is equipped with pole changing dual speed motors with a speed ratio up to 6:1. The low speed allows precise handling, for example in assembly work, mounting, and lowering fragile loads. The fast speed helps to shorten production cycles and increase productivity.
SLX includes the latest technology for inverter-driven motors with a wide range of smart and safety features, such as extended speed range, shock load absorption, and programmable limit switches.
CXT electric wire rope hoists
The CXT electric wire rope hoist is one of our most widely-used product. Anywhere people want to lift up to 80 tons, you can often find a CXT hoist doing the job.
Choose a normal headroom hoisting trolley when you have the space, or a low headroom model when you don't. Available in monorail or double girder models, flexibility is key. The CXT electric wire rope hoist adapts for the requirements of your runway and your building.
Wire rope hoists for hazardous environments are also available.
A wire rope hoist that lasts
Ideally, you should buy a full CXT crane, to ensure the quality of all of your lifting equipment. But if your budget is tight, you may wish to modernize your existing crane with the CXT hoist. Even if you only buy the hoist, we still service your whole crane, not just the Konecranes part.
Konecranes offers a wide range of explosion proof equipement, including cranes and components. All strategic components, such as wire rope hoists, chain hoists, belt hoists, traveling machineries, end carriages and crane controls, are designed and manufactured to ensure the highest safety level required in hazardous environments such as found in chemical and petrochemical plants, oil refineries, gas power plants, waste water treatment plants and paint shops.
