Columbus McKinnon introduces the CM Hurricane Mini 360° hand chain hoist to the North American market.

Columbus McKinnon Corporation, hoist and material handling equipment manufacturer, has unveiled the CM Hurricane Mini 360° hand chain hoist.

The CM Hurricane Mini 360 offers anti-corrosive features, including aluminum alloy hoist frame and zinc-plated chains.

The CM Hurricane Mini 360° is the smallest hand chain hoist on the market with full 360-degree rotation, providing versatility as well as portability, the company said.

“We wanted to offer the market a smaller hand chain hoist with an added advantage for operators: the ability to lift loads from any angle or position—even above the load,” said Andre Schon, senior product manager, global. “That versatility makes the Hurricane Mini 360° suitable for a wide range of applications and industries, from construction to entertainment.”

The CM Hurricane is designed to lift up to 20 feet (6 metres) with capacities of one quarter ton and one half ton (114 and 227 kg). It is ideal for narrow workspaces that do not have a nearby power source.

In addition to the launch of the CM Hurricane Mini 360°, Columbus McKinnon recently launched the CM HTP and HTG Clevis Trolley.
