Chain hoist

ST series chain hoist

Electric chain hoists

The chain hoists from STAHL CraneSystems are among the most comprehensive in the world. Used in thousands of applications over decades, modernised and optimised time and time again, the STAHL chain hoist is a classic. It is powerful, reliable and undemanding in terms of maintenance and  energy consumption.

Bearing load from 125 kg to 6,300 kg

The ST model series is available with bearing loads from 125 kg to 6,300  kg. These chain hoists are offered as stationary models with a suspension hook, suspension eye or fixed  mounting and with a push trolley or electric trolley. They are particularly well suited for heavy industrial use.

The extremely short overall height available as an alternative for each chain hoist type optimises the usable hook height with minimal chain wear. Additional special versions and individual customer solutions are available in addition to the standard versions.

The innovative and trendsetting design offers economic benefits.

Large inventory of chain hoists & accessories

We offer many chain hoists (standard versions) from 125 kg to 6.3 tons, stationary or with manual or electric travel trolleys with very short delivery times.

Configure them according to your individual needs in our chain hoist  configurator.

Delivery within 48 hours

We stock the components in our chain hoist inventory so they can be individually assembled for you on site. Many accessories such as operating hour counters, limit switches and the like are also available on demand.
We deliver chain hoists from the configurator within 48 hours after issuing the order confirmation. The supplied chain hoists are ready to use immediately since they are plug-in units.

Chain hoist versions and accessories

ST chain hoist: Models and trolley versions

Various models and trolley versions for the ST chain hoist make it suitable for a wide variety of applications in crane and plant construction. Individually tailored to your specific needs as a stationary lifting device or with a trolley. The trolleys come with one travel speed as standard. Motors with two speeds are available as an option.
Compact structural dimensions and extremely short approach dimensions help optimise the use of the factory work floor.

Suspension options for the stationary version

The stationary ST chain hoist has a suspension hook in the standard version.
However, you can choose a suspension eye or fixed suspension as an option. The suspension eye is used when the stationary chain hoist is never or rarely moved to different locations. The low overall height provides a long hook travel, even in rooms with low ceiling heights. We recommend the fixed suspension for direct attachment of the ST chain hoist, for example, in plant construction. The extremely short overall height is advantageous here as well. Fixed installation also keeps the chain hoist from swinging on the trolley.

Foot mounting for the stationary version

To optimise the use of space in halls with low ceiling heights, the ST chain hoist can be bolted to a foot mounting from below.

Electric trolley, normal overall height

Every millimetre was optimised in the design to permit a large hook travel, even with the normal overall height.

Electric trolley, short overall height

The quiet running electric trolley can also be combined with the ST chain hoist "with a short overall height", reducing the overall height by another 33%.

Push trolley

The push trolleys for the ST 05 and ST10 1/1 chain hoists in the standard version with hook or eye have a pendulum connection to the chain hoist. A fixed connection to the chain hoist is available on request. This fixed connection is standard with the ST 20 through ST 60 chain hoists. The low overall height is maintained with the push trolley. Optional wheel arresters improve workplace safety.

Articulated trolley

The articulated trolley is available for frequently driving in curves and for tight radii. It is equipped with one or two drive motors depending on the curve radius, track flange width or use. The lateral guide rollers move with minimal wear. The articulated trolley is designed for a load bearing capacity of up to 6,300 kg.

Versions with short and extra-short trolley

The patented design of the extra-short trolley reduces the overall height by 60% and permits extremely large lifting heights.

Stationary dual chain hoist "Z"

The STD chain hoist is adapted to the width of the load and rigidly mounted on a substructure. The load hooks are respectively on the left and right of the chain hoist.

STD Vario dual chain hoist

The hook spacing is power adjustable and can be individually adapted to loads of different lengths. The two hooks are fully synchronised. Unintentional adjustment of the load hooks during lifting or movement is not possible.

Stationary dual chain hoist "E"

The STD chain hoist is adapted to the width of the load and rigidly mounted on a substructure. The load hooks are on one side of the chain hoist.

ST chain hoist: Technology

Knowing the sophisticated technology behind the robust ST chain hoist is reassuring. The low-maintenance components of the modular chain hoist are optimised to work together. They guarantee consistent performance, a long service life and high efficiency.

The patented massive cast iron chain guide is one of the key features for workplace safety. Since the load bearing components are integrated into this assembly, the load is carried where it is supported. Direct suspension means the distribution of forces is not via the housing.
