Chester Zephyr Low Headroom Chain Hoist

1-1⁄2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20 and 24 Short Ton Capacities with 8-Foot Standard Lift.

The Chester Zephyr Low Headroom Chain Hoist is designed for very limited head room applications, where other hoists cannot be used. The Low Headroom Hoist is custom built to fit a specific beam and can be built to suite patented tracks, I-Beams, Wide Flange beams or almost any other type of runway. The hoist incorporates a rugged steel frame, suspension members and covers and uses the heavy-duty components common to the Zephyr Hoist product line. Features include a planetary gear train, positive acting Weston Style load brake, alloy steel load chain and a load wheel, which can be reversed to double its useful life.
