SEQ Hoist from Kito Canada – single phase VFD Electric Chain Hoist

Kito’s new SEQ powered hoists means smooth starts and stops, adjustable speeds, and unbeatable precision. Fitted with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) and available in both single and three-phase power it is now available in Canada through Acculift.

Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)

All dual speed models come with a standard “under-the-cover” variable frequency drive – regardless of voltage. This device works by varying the power to the motor, which allows you to adjust both the high and low speeds. It also provides a soft-start/soft-stop operation to reduce shock loads, swing, and bounce – resulting in more precise load control and longevity of the hoist.


The die-cast body is lightweight and offers low headroom – one of the best in the industry and th paint is electrostatically applied for a highly chip resistant finish.

Unique Chain Guide

Provides quiet and smooth guiding of chain. Heavy cast iron construction for improved wear versus stamped steel design offered by many manufacturers.

Self-Adjusting Maintenance-Free Brake

Equipped with an electromagnetic pull rotor brake, the EQ|SEQ has no brake coil to fail or discs to replace, making it virtually maintenance-free.

Move into position faster with the No Load High Speed

When working with less than 30% of the full rated capacity, the EQ|SEQ can operate 1.3 times faster, optimizing your work efficiency and production time.

Extreme Duty, Single-Phase, Fan-Cooled Motor

Rated for an ASME H4 Classification, the motor has a 30/10 minute duty rating in a single phase, dual speed offering. The external motor fan functions quickly to eliminate resistor, motor, and brake heat.
