The most popular LX hoist format is suitable for use on single girder overhead cranes, jib cranes and monorails. The LX chain hoist is suspended from a four wheeled trolley which is powered via a flange mounted gearbox by a two speed electric motor with an adjustable brake. The wheels are machined from steel with a single flange and a slight radius on the running surface to ensure good contact when running on either flat or tapered beam flanges. Two wheels are driven to provide perfect traction even on uneven running surfaces.
