S-series hoist


New standard in lifting

We set out to reinvent the industry benchmark. Radically redesigned both inside and out, the Konecranes S-series will set the new standard in lifting for years to come.

Confident. Forward-looking. Bold.

When it comes to overhead cranes, our CXT crane has long been the industry standard. With the Konecranes S-series crane, we’re changing the game again, and setting the new benchmark. Never-before-seen features like the tilted drum, offset reeving, synthetic rope and the girder sliding connection, it’s a bold new approach in lifting. These design updates make lifting more precise and powerful, and significantly cut down the wear and tear.


Our next generation reeving system is unlike anything you have ever seen. The standout innovations are tilted drum and offset reeving, helping improve crane lifetime significantly.

Minimized wheel loads

  • Off - set reeving for more balanced wheel loads
  • 45% reduction in wheel load due to geometric arrangement of the travelling wheels and reeving system

Built to last

  • Tilted drum radically reduces fleet angles eliminating rope crossing and rope peak forces.
  • Reduced structural twisting, wear and fatigue with this unique reeving arrangement and unwavering trolley design.


We did the test. Synthetic rope is unbeatable.

Less wear and tear

  • Synthetic rope reduces wear and tear of both the rope and the components as it has less surface pressure and friction against the reeving components

Safe and no lubrication

  • Light weight makes it easy to carry and safe to handle as it's barb free.
  • Synthetic rope requires no lubrication which may result in reduced cost of maintenance in rope as well as rope drum and sheaves.
  • Faster installation as it is easy to bend and guide around sheaves


We were the first company to bring inverters for horizontal movements. Now we have also standardized the inverter for hoisting and taught the crane to understand the hook position.

Control Lifting

  • Inverter controlled hoisting means more accurate load positioning, safer load handling, and less structural demands.

Control Load Swing

  • Smart Features like Follow Me, Hook Centering and Snag Prevention make everyday operations safer and more efficient


The new, revolutionary main girder has a sliding connection. This means your crane accommodates bigger tolerances of the crane runway.

The ultimate fit for the runway

  • No misalignments and bigger tolerances on the runway due to sliding connection

Ease of inspection

  • Easy visual, non-destructive inspections and better evaluation of the crane condition as we put welds outside of the main girder in our new welded box structure
