The loyal companion for everyday tasks

The ST chain hoist programme ranks among the most distinctive and comprehensive on offer worldwide. It is strong, reliable and modest when it comes to maintenance and energy consumption. The modular system enables innumerable combinations of the subassemblies for customised solutions. With 6 variants available, the ST chain hoist covers the lifting capacity range from 125 kg to 6,300 kg. The portfolio is supplemented by special models such as the STK extra short headroom trolley and the STD dual chain hoist for long material and lifting beams.

The chain hoists are also available in explosion-proof design for Zone 1, Zone 21 and Zone 22.

  • Extensive chain hoist range for lifting capacities from 125 kg to 6,300 kg
  • Suspension directly from the chain guide of solid cast iron
  • Easy inspection and maintenance of the chain drive thanks to overmounted drive shaft
  • Extremely short and compact construction ensures that space can be utilised to the maximum
  • High ISO classification according to FEM/ISO standards
  • Modern Kanban production, available fast
  • Available as an option in explosion protected design complying with ATEX and IECEx
  • Doppelkettenzug STD mit einem Motor zwei synchron laufenden Ketten

    Thanks to modular construction, countless custom variants can be built from the ST chain hoist for almost all applications and industries.

  • Kettenzug ST von STAHL CraneSystems als Kurze Katze

    The patented design of the STK extra short headroom trolley permits exceptional lifting heights particularly in low buildings.

  • Einsatz vieler Kettenzüge vom Typ ST 50 in einer Produktionsstraße der Automobilindustrie.

    Additional equipment, such as a central control system, enables automated interaction of multiple ST chain hoists.

  • Industrielle Fertigung, ausgerüstet mit Kettenzügen vom Typ ST von STAHL CraneSystems

    Thanks to its solid construction, the ST chain hoist boasts a long service life even in heavy-duty use.


The different models and trolley variants allow not only a wide variety of uses, but also very individualised solutions tailored to specific requirements.

    Push trolley

    In standard version, the ST 05 and ST 10 1/1 chain hoists are suspended by eye or hook from the smooth-running push trolleys. A rigid connection with the chain hoist is possible on request. This rigid connection is standard in the ST 20 to ST 60 chain hoists. The push trolley does not affect the low headroom of the hoist. Optional wheel arresters make your workplace safer.

    DKE articulated trolley

    The articulated trolley is available for frequent travel around bends and narrow radii. Depending on radius of bend, runway flange width or application it is equipped with one or two travel motors. The lateral guide rollers cause minimum wear. The articulated trolley is designed for load capacities up to 6,300 kg.

    “Standard headroom” electric trolley

    Not one millimetre was given away in the design in order to enable large hook paths even at standard headroom.

  • Um 33 % reduzierte Bauhöhe durch die Kombination des Elektrofahrwerks „kurze Bauhöhe“ und des Kettenzugs ST.

    “Short headroom” electric trolley

    The smooth-running electric trolley can also be combined with the ST short headroom chain hoist, reducing the headroom by a further 33 %.

  • Grafik des Standardkettenzuges im direkten Vergleich mit der Kurzen und Superkurzen Katze.

    The construction of the short headroom trolley itself saves a tremendous amount of space. The body of the chain hoist is mounted at an angle, meaning that no return sheave is required. This reduces the headroom by 33 %. The extra short headroom trolley with its headroom reduced by 60 %, by contrast, achieves maximum hook paths, which is particularly beneficial in extremely low-ceilinged rooms. It fully deserves its name. The extremely short distance from the underside of the beam to the bed of the hook is just 210 mm at a load capacity of 5,000 kg and even just 185 mm at a load capacity of 3,200 kg.

    The STD dual chain hoist is ideal for long material and lifting beams that need to be picked up at two points. It is equipped with two load chains, which are moved synchronously by a hoist motor. There are various versions of the STD dual chain hoist available for different requirements and space situations.

  • Grafik des Big Bag-Kettenzugs STB. Er hebt sperrige Lasten bis zur höchsten Hakenstellung.

    The Big Bag version is designed for load capacities up to 3,200 kg. Its special feature is the free choice of the distance between chain hoist and load hook which makes lifting bulky loads or Big Bags up to top hook position possible without hindering edges such as trolley, chain hoist or chain box.

    Suspension for stationary version

    The standard stationary ST chain hoist has hook suspension. However you can also choose eye suspension or rigid suspension. The eye suspension is used when the stationary chain hoist is only rarely moved to a different location, while the low headroom permits long hook paths even in low-ceilinged rooms. If the ST chain hoist is to be permanently mounted, for example in systems manufacture, we recommend rigid suspension. Here too the extremely short headroom is of advantage. In addition, the rigid mounting prevents the chain hoist swinging on the trolley.

    Foot mounting for stationary version

    In order to utilise space optimally in low-ceilinged rooms the ST chain hoist can be bolted from below onto a foot mounting.
