ED High Speed Electric Chain Hoist

Little hoist. Lots of power.

Plug the ED into any standard 115 V wall socket and you’re ready to lift. With speeds up to 44 fpm, you’ll be amazed that such a small hoist moves so quickly. Designed for productivity and portability, the ED also offers a variable-speed option to adjust the speed to best suit your application.

  • 115 Volts

High-Speed Motor

The ED electric hoist is a quick-lifting, single-phase speed demon available in a variety of configurations. The compact DC motor reduces weight, generates less heat, and maintains duty cycles to keep production moving.

Standard Double-Braking System

Get double the protection with a Weston-style mechanical load brake plus a regenerative brake.

Quiet, Smooth Operation

With bearings immersed in an oil bath, you can hear how smooth the ED electric hoist operates. That reduced friction results in less noise and vibration, which extends the hoist’s service life.

Kito’s own heat-treating process increases the overall hardness and strength of internal parts for increased resistance to wear. Our three-step process of bright heat treatment, case hardening, and induction provides the ED with outstanding performance.

Integrated Friction Clutch

Integrated with the load brake, the high-performance friction clutch on the ED is engineered to protect against overwinding or overtravel, which can damage the hoist and cause downtime.
