Low Headroom LK Electric Chain Hoist

Do you need to get every inch you can from your lifting height? The low headroom LK electric chain hoist offers the great features of the LK electric chain hoist while maximizing your hook height. Using a special trolley frame with upper sprocket and offset hoist machinery, the low headroom LK electric chain hoist moves the hook away from the hoist body to allow for maximum hook height in tight clearance applications. Its compact design improves hook reach and offers an industry-leading price/performance ratio.

The low headroom LK electric hoist is designed to effectively lift equipment along a crane or monorail system in buildings with tight overhead clearances. This hoist could be used for applications like loading machines (e.g. CNC machines), loading tooling, lifts which require a below-the-hook device or lifting other equipment with demanding headroom (referred to as C dimension in our technical drawings). Whether you hook the hoist to the equipment itself or to a below-the-hook device (such as a sling, shackle or grabber), this hoist achieves the clearance needed to handle these loads while keeping operators safe. You can install this hoist as part of a new build or in an existing building.
