Columbus McKinnon Corporation has upgraded its Lodestar electric chain hoist for a quieter operation and user-friendliness.

With a capacity range of 1/8 to 3 tonnes and a wide range of speeds, the CM Lodestar has the versatility to meet any challenge, said the company. It is designed with a light weight, durable cast aluminum housing and bright powder coated finish for high visibility.

An adjustable limit switch prevents the load from over-travel and built in overload protection helps prevent lifting of dangerous overloads. The overload clutch is now positioned outside the transmission providing easy access for maintenance and out of the load path, giving the operator complete control in the event of an overload, CM said. A five-pocket lift wheel means minimal chain wear, and there is a redesigned control panel for easy access.
