Safe and comfortable working with the SMART Protection System

Use of the overload protection system, the SMART Protection System, with the Hand Operated Lever Hoist LH201GSB HITCH is especially recommended for areas where it is difficult to determine weights of cargo, such as in shipbuilding and mining. The SMART Protection System independently defines lift overload and does not perform lifting. The operator can be assured of absolute safety, because when overloading is triggered the friction clutch, stop the lift, load lock fixedly will not allow it to fall. The fact that the Hand Operated Lever Hoist HITCH  is equipped with an overload system is shown by the mark on the nameplate mounted on the equipment body:

This model is characterized by the letter «S» which refers to SMART in HITCH’s series of models.


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.
 

CHAIN BRAKE 

The chain brake is designed in such a way that excludes the possibility of it becoming stuck in the lift wheel, which could lead to failure of the hoist, It is made from durable forged alloy steel.
 

BRAKE SYSTEM 

HITCH Professional hoists are equipped with the most safe and durable brake system in the market. The construction of brake complies with the strictest generally accepted standards.
Double pawls divide the load onto opposite sides of ratchet disc. It increases safety of operator and extends life time of the hoist.
Hitchlifting company is certain about the highest quality of brake mechanism construction of HITCH Professional and provides lifetime warranty for it. Please consult «Service» section for the details on lifetime warranty.
HITCH brake discs of HITCH Professional are less breakable. If brake discs on HITCH Professional hoist are worn out within three years after purchase, we replace them for free.
 

ERGONOMIC HANDLE IS ROTATED 360 DEGREES 

A full handle rotation of 360 degrees allows the operator to use the most convenient grip of the hoist for maximum range of motion and, as a consequence, Increase the efficiency of working with the hoist. The short lever has ribs attached to the rubber handle which provides a comfortable grip under any climatic conditions. 
 

MINIMUM PHYSICAL EFFORTS 

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

PINION SHAFT 

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

SMOOTH RUNNING OF THE CHAIN 

Strong guide rollers are used to prevent breakdown and seizing of the chain on the lift wheel. Shroud acts as a chain guide and protects from debris and precipitation.
 

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. 
The use of equipment with a hook which is damaged or has a broken safety latch is prohibited. Therefore HITCH has specifically developed cast steel thick-walled safety latches and fixed them at the base in order to increase safety. The notch on the end of the latch and on the end of the hook is engineered to engage the tip of the hook to protect against lateral impact damage.
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. 
Option: The Shipyard hook is designed for use in selected areas of shipbuilding, as well as in sheet forming. 
 

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.
 

BEARINGS 

HITCH uses high-quality industrial bearings that serve the entire period of use of lever hoist without needing replacement. In the innovative line of products, for example, in the Hand Operated Lever Hoist HITCH LH201-GSB, new bearings are mounted in the housing plates. 
Improving the lever hoist with such bearings has allowed: 
-    Less effort to achieve the rated capacity
-    Obtainment of a higher rigidity of the whole structure
-    Ridding of contaminants
-    Fewer wear indicators
-    An increase in design reliability in extreme conditions
-    Significant extension of the useful life of the equipment
-    General reduction in cost to the buyer due to the increase in the period of use.
This model is characterized by the letter «B» which refers to Bearings in HITCH's model series. 
 

EASE OF CHAIN MANAGEMENT 

The standard mechanism as «free-wheel mode» chain is suitable for the rapid attachment of the load and the chain runs through the hoist in both directions. 
 

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.
