High duty rate with low maintenance requirements


Star Liftket is the latest range of electric chain hoists developed using 50 years of engineering experience. Built in Germany, Liftket products are recognised throughout the world for their extreme durability, even under adverse operating conditions such as tropical climates and in places where high level technical servicing is not possible.

In fact, arduous long term laboratory testing ensures that the lifecycle of mechanical parts exceeds FEM requirements for the specific duty groups.The Star Liftket range also has proven low maintenance – and simple part replacement. All wearing parts are easily accessible and replaceable without requiring special tools. The modular design means that fan-cooled motors, brakes and the sealed, oil-filled gearboxes are supplied complete and simply ‘bolt on’ with no adjustment required. Operators can even change from one chain fall to two – or turn counter-clockwise – quickly and safely. No screws, pins or bolts involved.

Advanced safety with the patented, intelligent, clutch/brake system

For added safety the Liftket’s patented clutch/brake system does not have sliding connections between the load and brake. Thanks to its intelligent design, the heat from the clutch/brake does not affect the lifting motor.
