Kito Introduces New 500kg Manual CX Chain Hoist



Tokyo, May 31, 2016 - Industrial hoist and crane maker Kito Corporation (head office: Nakakoma-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture; President: Yoshio Kito) announces the release of a new 500kg model to its CX line of chain hoists to Japanese market on July 15 and, for North American and European markets, July 1. Since the 250kg model hit the market in 2006, a broad range of industries has adopted CX chain hoists, and a 500kg model has been in demand. Maintaining the light, compact features of the 250kg model, the power-enhanced 500kg version will expand application of the CX line. The hoist body that is designed with all-in-one aluminum structure weighs only 4.5kg (standard travel model). It's compact, easy to carry and set up on construction sites and in tight workspaces, even in high positions, for safe, efficient work.
