Advantages and characteristics

Currently, you can buy Hand Chain Hoist CH100/100-G with capacities of 1/2, 1, 1-1/2, 2, 3, 5, 10 and 20 tons to perform any tasks.

Compact design and mobility

HITCH hoisting equipment can move easily from place to place due to its compact design. Even where space is limited, the equipment is convenient to use.

Clear marking

Each HITCH product is accompanied with a unique serial number and mechanical class marking that allows you to quickly and accurately determine the characteristics and the type of equipment.

Identification according to mechanical class

To simplify the determination of modes of loading, the manufacturer has developed technology for marking mechanical HITCH classes. Belonging to a specific mechanical class is indicated by different colors. The equipment used in industry to operate in conditions of high and medium loads is colored black, and corresponds to M4-M5 classes. The equipment used in industry to operate in conditions of medium and low loads is painted in green and corresponds to the M2 class.

Usage class of the mechanism

Class of use of the mechanism is determined by the expected total duration of operation, calculated in hours, as well as the nominal classes, shown in Table 1:

Т0200Irregular usage
Т43,2Regular usage in light conditions
Т56,3Regular usage with interruptions
Т612,5Regular intensive usage
Т725Intensive usage

Loading mode

Load Mode determines the relative duration of work with the equipment in the conditions of maximum or reduced load. Table 2 shows the nominal loading modes. The nominal value of the load factor for the equipment is also determined in Table 2 (the actual value that is closest to the nominal ratio is significant).

Loading modeNominal load distribution coefficient KmNote
L1-Light0.125Equipment is regularly operated under small loads, but rarely under the largest loads
L2- Normal0.25Equipment is regularly operated under moderate loads, and quite often under the largest loads
L3-Heavy0.50Equipment is regularly operated under high loads, and often under the largest loads
L4-Severe1.00Equipment is regularly operated under the largest loads

Definition of classification group of equipment in general

By installing the class of use and loading mode, according to Table 3 it is possible to determine the classification of a group of equipment.

High hull strength

The housing of the hoist is made of impact-resistant pressed steel, which guarantees long-lasting reliable operation of the equipment in the most difficult conditions. The housing of the hoist is protected against corrosion with a wear-resistant layer of powder paint, therefore the equipment is able to operate in harsh weather conditions.

Heat-treated plates

Heat treated bearing plates provide the high rigidity needed to maintain the shape of the housing and the effective operation of equipment, regardless of the load on the hoist. The process of heat treatment also prevents abrasion of material during contact time between the loaded chains and side plates.

Hooks/Load security

HITCH designed the hooks which are made of alloy steel. The specific advantage of this important element of the hoist is that when under excessive load, the hook is not destroyed, and is instead gradually stretched, signaling excessive weight which provides added security during lifting. The operator can therefore promptly react to the situation and prevent an accident. Top and bottom hooks are fitted with a wide throat, which makes it easy to fix the load. The hooks can be rotated 360 degrees for quick and easy operation.

Brake system

Reliable construction with dual brake pawls share the load on opposite sides of the ratchet gear. This additionally enhances the safety and prolongs the service life of the hoist.

Loading chain

The chain, galvanized, calibrated and tested in the USA by Hitchlifting Inc., meets the requirements of class G80 chain strength and provides safety and a long service life of the hoist. A galvanized load chain has several advantages:
- corrosion resistance for aggressive operating environments
- the service life is much higher than a normal chain G80
- greater purity of the chain and all the hoist mechanisms

This model is characterized by the letter «G» which refers to Galvanic in HITCH’s model series.

Smooth running of the chain

Strong guide rollers are used to prevent breakdown and seizing of the chain on the lift wheel.

Pinion shaft

This part is made of hardened steel of high-class durability and reliability for industrial use.

Minimum physical efforts

Thanks to its improved HITCH’s drive, compact housing, double reduction gear reducer and ergonomic design mean that it requires a minimum of effort when working with the hoist.

Hand wheel and hand drive chain

The hand drive chain is galvanized and meets standards of safety in the United States. The high-precision machining of the hand wheel pockets receiving the hand chain of the hoist provides continuous operation of the hoist without noise, jamming or slippage.

Quick technical inspection

Our equipment is completed with the use of nuts with nylon inserts that prevent spontaneous loosening and allow mechanics to quickly dismantle it for inspection and simple repairs.
