LX Miniature Lever Hoist

Small is the new huge.

Don’t be fooled by its award winning pocket-sized design; the LX is no lightweight. Its robust integrated aluminum housing, tip supported hook latches, and heat treated gears and chain make this a small hoist that delivers huge durability and performance. And, with a 1mm lifting accuracy, the LX is capable of positioning your load exactly where you want it. Try it in either available capacity: the LX ¼tweighs in at only 4 lbs, making it the ideal lever hoist for work in tight quarters or elevated locations. Or try the LX ½t, which weighs in at only 6 lbs, for even more pulling power.

Tough Aluminum Body and Steel Frame

Its lightweight and extremely compact aluminum body make the LX your ideal tool for elevated or difficult-to-reach places. Tools aren’t always treated with the respect they deserve, which is why the durable steel frame provides long-lasting, high-strength support.

Unmatched Precision Placement

A top choice for contracting or millwright professionals who need a precision placement tool that will lift, hold or tension a load to within millimetre accuracy. The LX requires very low force to lift loads and provides unmatched positioning capabilities when you need it most.

Quick Free-Chain and Hook Positioning

Hook positioning is simple and safe with the integrated 2 step free-chain mechanism on the LX. You can easily switch from up or down mode to release the load from the hook and reposition in seconds.

Abrasion and Corrosion-Resistant Load Chain

The standard grade 100 Nickel-Plated Chain on the LX is designed to stand up to abrasion and corrosion, which keeps your hoist working when you need it. It also withstands corrosive environments where damp air, steam and many acidic and alkaline solutions are prevalent.

Award-Winning Pocket-Sized Design
