New: S-series low headroom hoist

  • Konecranes S-series low headroom hoist
  • The latest addition to the Konecranes S-series family is the new low headroom hoist. This compact hoist boasts excellent approach dimensions and smooth stepless lifting with load dependent lifting motor for the ultimate user experience and shorter cycle times.

    Strong, lightweight, durable and clean synthetic rope improves the lifting experience by making it safer and easier to handle because it doesn’t fray or produce sharp barbs like steel wire rope. The hook block boasts improved finger protection and has a finger pocket that makes it safer and easier to grab when using features like Follow Me.

    The hoist also features integrated Smart Features to enhance your safety and help increase productivity with shorter load cycle times—especially useful for inexperienced crane operators. Safety also gets a boost from a safety light on the trolley that provides a visual signal of crane movement in the workspace to nearby personnel.
