The wire rope hoist can be used on crane systems with a variety of applications, and in a variety of industries. The Kito RX is a standard hoist that can be modularly assembled into an exclusive hoist.

In addition, the Kito RX consists of accessible modules, so that all components can be inspected and maintained inhouse by service or operating personnel.
