The Stahl (400volt) ST chain hoist is a classic simple powered chain hoist model, trusted by thousands, Stahl is one of the market leaders for hoisting equipment, obviously, there are positive reasons for this; high quality build, design with ergonomics in mind, swift ability to deliver parts overnight when required. There are many more reasons why people choose Stahl, find out yours when you purchase a Stahl hoist from Lifting Equipment Store.

Stahl ST Electric Chain Hoists are brightly colored for safety purposes (in classic standard Stahl green and black). Lightweight and compact, this easy-to-install hoist can be up and running in just a few moments. Most units come complete with a chain box for storing slack load chain when the load is being hoisted upwards towards the unit. The low voltage pendant control sits lightly in the hand and is simple and efficient to operate making this hoist unit a pleasure to use.


All Prices Shown are based upon the following specification:-​

Supply Voltage 400v 3phase 50hz
48v low voltage Telemechanique controls
1.8 meter long, plug-in design ip65 rated control pendant
Slack chain collecter included
Hoist enclosure protection to IP55
Hoist overload protection with a slipping clutch
Standard zinc plated load chain

You should choose your desired specification from the drop-down menus. Choose your desired mounting: Lug, Hook, Manual Trolley or Powered Trolley in single or twin-speed. Choose your lifting height from 3m to 10m (for larger please call) and then sit back, relax and wait for your brand new German-made (shipped from the UK) Stahl Electric Chain Hoist to be delivered to your door!


Buyer Beware: There are a number of Electric Chain Hoists being sold on the market (some are even using household electronics names) that look very convincing based on aesthetics and price. Be advised that if you are using a hoist in an industrial environment then you should only consider one suitable for such arduous environments like the Stahl ST model (and any other European branded models offered by LES). Just because the hoist conforms to an EU/British standard and ticks the 'price' box does not guarantee value or a European origin. When you purchase a Stahl ST, we guarantee great value and long service life when used in the correct manner. These hoists are proudly manufactured by Stahl Cranesystems in Germany. Yes, these hoists are a little more expensive than a far-eastern import, however- as the old saying goes- "Buy it once".

Don't believe us? Watch the video in the tab above titled 'Video'. Still not sure? Give our Electric Chain Hoist experts a call today and they'll walk you through the journey step-by-step from choosing the correct hoist to getting you the best deal on the market and delivered in record times to meet your next deadline and exceed your expectations.


Suspension Types:

When used in industrial applications Stahl ST Hoists are frequently fitted with a selection of different suspension or mounting types offering static up/down lifting or horizontal traverse (left/right) via their integrated beam trolleys- available in a manual or powered configuration. We always recommend powered travel trolleys when lifting over 1tonne- this is because large loads can be difficult to move, and once they start moving they can be difficult to stop- thanks to the Stahl powered trolley this is made easy.


In order of left to right: Lug Suspension, Hook Suspension, Push/Manual Trolley, Electric Travel Trolley

Featuring a low-maintenance, asbestos-free electromagnetic disk brake to reduce your companies lifting maintenance costs, it is important you look after hoisting units to ensure a long efficient life span.
Brake wear can be measured and checked to ensure the hoist is long-lived, this advanced pedicel of technology ables the hoist to remain safe when inching loads slowly when near ground level, this can be a useful feature as some hoists will not cope with this amount of stress on a regular basis. The totally enclosed brake ensures no dust, humidity or vapors can pass through the exterior.

The powerful Stahl motor boasts a high-duty cycle enabling the hoist to be continually used for longer periods of time. Cooled by a fan as standard this hoist features dual speed hoisting and travel to ensure loads are positioned accurately. (Single speed and four-pole versions are available as options).

Chain Drive
Superior quality and patented technology has birthed the Stahl ST chain drive, complete with a self-lubricated enclosed chain guide, the water-resistant case hardened chain sprocket ensures reduced wear and tear on the chain in conjunction with optimized return sheaves.

Control Gear
The control gear on this hoist is fully specifiable when ordering a hoist unit, we can customize a unit to operate on any given voltage*. Featuring a simple 'plug and go' method for connection of pendant control and travel motor. Available with direct control, no pendant control and (or) contactor control.

Chain Boxes
There are three different options for chain collecting boxes. Plastic, Sheet Steel or Textile material can be requested.

Load Chain
The surface-hardened galvanized load chain provides long service life with its high case depth. Large dimensioned, high FEM classification. Stainless steel load chains are available as an option.

Slipping Clutch
An important safety feature of the safety-conscious Stahl hoist is its slipping clutch, preventing the load from slipping in events such as power failure- something to consider in all environments. Easily adjusted from the exterior creating a precise response where no electric limiting is required. Various gear reductions are available.

Optional Extras

  • Radio control operation
  • Limit switch
  • Bypass brake (second brake for increased safety)
  • Vibration Damper
  • Digital Load Display
