Chester Zephyr Hook Type Hoists are designed, built and tested to rigid specifications of quality and performance to exceed industry standards. The Chester Zephyr is a thoroughly engineered hoist from every standpoint. With available capacities from 1/4 through 25 ton, its simplicity of design makes it easy to service and maintain.
Standard construction features include a lightweight steel frame, heavy duty steel covers, ball bearing supported load shaft and a durable, efficient, grease lubricated planetary gear train. Gears and pinions are alloy steel, machine cut, heat treated and mounted on heavy duty roller bearings. Load and hand chain guides assure smooth, trouble free operation. A fast acting Weston Style brake provides smooth, positive load handling. Precision formed alloy steel load chain runs in a reversible 5 or 6 pocket load sheave.
The Zephyr design is easily adaptable to meet the special requirements of most applications.
