CLX Electric Chain Hoists

Our best chain hoist yet

The latest CLX electric chain hoist from Konecranes has been designed to speed up work cycles, enhance safety and extend service life. It is extremely versatile and durable, making it ideal at a demanding workstation. The CLX can lift up to 5 tons.

Its robust aluminium frame is accompanied by a maintenance-free gearbox and patented five-tooth chain sprocket with intermediate teeth that allows quiet operation and gives longer chain life. Using oil lubrication, the gearbox lowers operating temperature, which increases power. The 6:1 speed ratio enables movement that is fast and precise, with a corresponding improvement in work cycles.

Designed for safety and easy maintenance

The Konecranes CLX electric chain hoist has been improved to promote crane safety and a longer service life. Safety is enhanced with features such as a hoist limit switch, securing brake, and hook block. In addition, the brake and slipping clutch are designed to prevent the load from dropping or micro-slipping.

Downtime has been minimized with easy serviceability and simple maintenance access. The new self-adjusting magnetic brake is designed so that no adjustments are required over the lifetime of the brake, and with plug-in connections, the components of the hoist are easy to replace.

Recognized for its design

The new-generation CLX electric chain hoist from Konecranes boasts a modern ergonomic look that earned it the prestigious Red Dot Award for Industrial Design in 2013 and a special mention in the 2015 German Design Award competition for its quality of design.

The CLX is made to last. With a 50% ED rating, CLX enables 300 starts per hour and keeps your workstation running. To make your lifting operations safer, we have also designed a new, patented chain drive that reduces stress on the chain. Discover how CLX can be your toughest worker.

Customer stories

In early 2013, SAF Holland partnered with Konecranes to try out its new chain hoist, the CLX, a proven performer in Europe, at the most difficult location in the plant. The CLX was used for one minute every five minutes, around the clock. “The hoist now runs more cycles than any other in the plant. We’ve been using it almost two months now, and I’ve had zero issues with it,” said Huey Ward, Production Supervisor, SAF Holland.
