Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist


Columbus McKinnon Corporation is proud to announce the addition of new features to the popular Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist. The CM Lodestar features allow the hoist to be used in all types of lifts and applications. With a capacity range of 1/8 to 3 tons and a wide range of speeds, the Lodestar has the versatility to meet any challenge.  The Made-in-the-USA hoist is designed with a light-weight, durable cast aluminum housing and a powder coated finish for high visibility.
Featuring finger-safe wiring and plug-and-play connectors, the control panel allows for quick voltage change, access to terminal strips and simple fuse installation.  The lifetime grease-lubricated gear box means no changing and disposing of hazardous oil.   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 located 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.  A five-pocket liftwheel means minimal chain wear, and a redesigned control panel permits easy access.
