HCB

 

Gear changing that's game changing.


Save time and increase efficiency with the world’s first dual speed manual chain hoist. Kito’s innovative magnetic clutch technology senses the load and changes gears automatically to work seven times faster when repositioning an unloaded hook. The result is a significant reduction in labour costs and operator fatigue – something both your workers and your accountant will appreciate.


 

Kito's HCB High-Speed Hand Chain Hoist

Save time and increase efficiency lifting heavy loads with Kito's High-Sped Hand Chain Hoist. Using the world's first built-in high/low clutch technology, this heavy duty hoist operates to standard specifications when loaded, but runs up to seven times faster when unloaded.

SAFE, RELIABLE, MECHANICAL BRAKE

The HCB gives you added protection with its double pawl springs, providing extra-reliable operation of the brake mechanism. With a double-enclosed brake cover, you can be sure that dust, rain, and dirt are kept out, and that that the mechanical brake activates instantly.

The First Clutch Of Its Kind

Work up to seven times faster and reduce operator fatigue during large capacity lifts. The HCB’s innovative quick clutch technology detects torque as the operator pulls on the hand chain, which can reduce man-hours and related costs.

AUTOMATIC SPEED CONTROL

In an unloaded or lightly loaded state, a magnetic clutch is automatically activated allowing the hoist to operate in high-speed mode. Once a load heavier than approximately 10 per cent of capacity is applied, the magnetic clutch releases and the standard clutch activates, putting the hoist back into standard-speed mode.

Efficient, Maintenance-Free Sealed Bearings

Low-maintenance features like sealed bearings protect from contamination and provide years of worry-free service. This contributes to the efficient drive chain and minimizes the manual effort required to operate.
