Demag DC-Com Chain Hoists are renowned for their reliability. With various sizes available with load capacities up to 2,000 kg these hoists have a standard 4-m hook path, operating time counter, and a service-friendly diagnosis interface. These hoists can be put into service fast thanks to plug connections and your employees will love the ergonomic handling.

These hoists use a high-quality powder-coated surface 
for improved protection and longer service life. With a 24v contactor control, slipping clutch with automatic cut-out by means of speed monitoring, and an IP 55 enclosure for chain hoist and trolley, these hoists are built for safety and reliability.

Versatility is built-in with two hoist speeds and an interface for electric travel. There is also an optional operating limit switches up to 1,000 kg.
