Kito LX Lever Chain Hoist – 1/4 Ton & 1-1/2 Ton

Kito LX Lever Chain Hoist – 1/4 Ton & 1-1/2 Ton

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 configuration: the LX 1/4t weighs in at only 4 lbs, making it the ideal lever hoist for work in tight quarters or elevated locations. Or try the LX 1/2t, which weighs in at only 6 lbs, for even more pulling power.
