Konecranes offers four kinds of manual hoists



July 31, 2013 – Konecranes offers four kinds of manual hoists for environments where electricity is impractical or simply not available: KL and KLP manual lever pullers; KM Series II manual chain hoist; and the army-style hand chain block hoist. Loads range from 1/4-ton to 20-ton, and the alloy steel chains are galvanized for corrosion resistance and dual Pawl Weston-style brakes with two friction discs not only provide four braking surfaces, but also are enclosed to protect against dirt. The hoists and lever pullers comply with ASME B30, and an open chain path allows simple inspection and cleaning. Customers can also choose a hand-geared chain trolley or manual push trolley, both of which are offered in standard and low headroom configurations. The KL and KLP manual lever pullers are able to operate in tight spaces with 360ยบ handle rotation. (Photo contributed by Konecranes)
