The LX low headroom electric chain hoist is ideal for lifting and handling in workshops with limited overhead space.

The LX low headroom electric chain hoist is ideal for lifting and handling in workshops with limited overhead space.

In capacities from 125 to 5000Kg, the new LX chain hoist from Street Crane Company opens a new market segment and is certain to attract attention. Already the UK’s largest crane manufacturer and a major exporter, Street Crane has designed the new hoists for precise and safe lifting for a range of industries such as automotive, commercial transport, construction, aviation, light marine and general engineering workshops.

Flexibility was a key project goal – there are hoists to meet every need. Eye suspension models for stationary lifting, powered or push trolley options, standard height models or chain hoists configured for low/restricted headroom situations are just a few of the choices. Other options include choices of hoist and travel speed, dual speed hoisting, enhanced environmental protection to IP55 and variable frequency travel drives. IP54 is the default environmental protection standard and all models are suited for temperatures from -20 to +50 degrees C.

Safety is paramount. A slipping clutch provides overload protection and chain hoists feature high performance disk brakes. Plug and socket electrical connections simplify final fix installation. Limit switches can be set for both hoisting and lateral travel.

There are several answers to problems of height limitation. On low headroom hoists the hook rises to the side of the motor gearbox to give an exceptionally low profile. Where the available operating envelope for the hoist is more limited, the hoist can be installed between the beams of a double beam crane to give an even greater clear working height.

Control options include 48 Volt standard pendant control or remote operation by radio device for greater convenience and safety. Control units can be set-up for solo operation or to work twin hoists for tandem lifts.

Built for world markets, LX chain hoists have rated capacities expressed as Metric tonnes or US tons. A wide selection of motor voltages allows hoists to meet different national requirements. Products are fully tested and certified under relevant EU and other international regulations.

Street Crane is a world leader in overhead cranes and wire rope hoists used for factory applications requiring lifts of up to 200 tonnes. Andrew Pimblett explained, “The new LX hoists are aimed at the volume market and are ideal for localised workstations and production line applications where they might typically be used on jibs, monorails, and light track crane systems. It has taken many years to establish Street Crane as a global player in wire rope hoists and we are confident that the value offered by the LX electric chain hoist will be very attractive to our customers. Feedback from our international distributors has already been highly favourable.”
