Kito launches new CX010 hand chain block with 1 ton load capacity

In response to the great demand for compact hand chain block, Kito has launched the new CX010 with 1 ton load capacity. Almost all users choose a hand chain block for mobile applications by two criteria, the dead weight and the load capacity, because you need as little weight as possible and as much power as possible at the same time. On this account, the small and compact Kito CX will now be available in three different versions. The newest one, Kito CX010, weights 7.3 kg and has a load capacity of 1 ton, offering many application options with heavy loads. 

The Kito CX010 is designed as the big brother of the CX005 (500 kg capacity). Just like the smaller models, the compact housing is made of lightweight but resistant aluminium. On the inside, it is equipped with two-stage precision gear: a heat-treated steel frame serves as a stable bearing for the gearwheels, while the gearwheels themselves are cold-forged for maximum and constant performance. The chain sprocket is casted and precisely matched to the gearbox so that Kito’s nickel-plated load chain is carried flawlessly. To ensure safe use, Kito has considered all possible risks during the product development of the Kito CX010. As small hand chain blocks are often transported and used in several places, the new ‘Twist Checker’ is part of the standard equipment. It is a small tool to determine quickly and easily if the load chain is twisted or if the hoist can be used directly and a genuine improvement for the daily work routine. 

New Kito CX with 1 ton load capacity is equipped with an overload limiter as standard and designed to ensure maximum security during use. Instead of a complex manufacturing line, it is put together by one expert who is digitally guided step by step. In addition, cameras scan every movement during the construction and immediately detect if a component is assembled incorrectly.
