L5 Lever Hoists – the work-horse of the manual chain hoists
Ideal for pulling, lifting or tensioning the KITO Lever Hoist Model L5/ LB stands out with its high performance and can handle even the most difficult challenges facing the industry. This is for instance the case in sectors like ship-building where sheet metal plates are pulled into place or where beams and girders have to be connected together and everywhere where precision work in very confined spaces is particularly important.
What is more, with its advanced industrial design the L5 received the sought-after price of the “Excellent Product Awards”, which was awarded by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) in 2009.
The Lever Hoist L5 is available with load capacities from 800 kg to 9 t. For loads of up to 3.2 t, it operates with one chain fall, at the 6.3 t with two chain falls, and the 9 t hoist with three chain falls. The graduation of load capacities ranges from 0.8 t to 1.0 t, 1.6 t, 2.5 t, 3.2 t, 6.3 t and 9 t. This makes KITO one of the few firms to supply hoists with load capacities of 1.0 t and 2.5 t.
By using double reduction gearing and a patented induction hardening process on load-bearing parts, the weight and size of the hoist are reduced while improved overall strength. As a result, you can use less hand force to operate and enjoy improved portability.
With a steel body frame, forged carbon steel hooks and corrosion-resistant nickel-plated load chain the LB Lever Hoist stands up in the most demanding industrial and contracting applications. Since load gearing parts, at rated capacity, are only stressed to 25% of their limit, you can operate the hoist with confidence over a long period of time.
A unique feature is the freewheel mechanism with overload protection. In conventional variants, it is possible that due to the inadvertent operation of the lever by the operator, the freewheel function is accidentally activated, leading to, in the worst case, the load being dropped. This is impossible with the KITO Lever Hoist LB, as it is fitted with a freewheel knob. This has to be engaged by gentle pulling to activate the freewheel function and release the chain for adjustment.
