EX manual hoists and trolleys

Reliable and safe manual equipment for hazardous areas

Konecranes EKM2 manual hoistsKonecranes EKM2 hand chain block and EKPT manual trolleys are cost-effective solutions for non-frequent lifting in explosive atmospheres. When you need special hoists for a short time during hectic work periods, this equipment is ready when you are. With specially protected surfaces and no need for electricity or cables, manual lifting reduces the risk of sparks under normal operating conditions. It is a safe and reliable solution for hazardous environments.

ISO hooks with a safety latch, an overload limiter and rubber buffer ease load handling. The EKM2 hand chain blocks can have either a hook suspended, chain travel trolley or a push travel trolley. Combine the EKM2 hand chain block with the EKPT trolley to lift up to 20 tons in optimal manual operation.
