Benefits & Features
SIDEWINDER LEVER HANDLE
This first-of-its-kind lever handle design will revolutionize the ratchet lever hoist industry. Its unique foldable handle and 360° rotating lever increases productivity while reducing the risk of operator injury.
CONVENIENT DIRECTIONAL INDICATOR
Easy-to-use, highly visible directional indicator located on the handle clearly shows the operating direction as lifting, lowering or neutral.
EASY & SMOOTH FREE CHAINING
For quick take up and positioning of slack chain - even with one hand. Designed not to accidently free chain while under load. Cast chain end stop allows the user to easily position the chain in free-chaining mode and prevents it from entering the liftwheel and jamming the hoist.
POSITIVE LOAD CONTROL
Enclosed Weston-type brake stays clean and dry for precise load positioning.
BUILT TO LAST
Lightweight aluminum housing withstands rigorous use and features high-quality, long-lasting bearings. Powder coat finish provides extra protection in harsh environments.
MEETS ASME B30.21
EXCELLENT CORROSION PROTECTION
Robust chain guide and chain stripper made from cast steel and zinc-plated for corrosion protection.
100% LOAD TESTED ZINC-PLATED CHAIN
Protects against corrosion.
EASY-TO-INSPECT SWIVEL HOOKS
Bolt-on hooks with nylon locks help users comply with ASME B30.21 and B30.10 inspection requirements. Hooks are forged, allowing them to yield under overload without breaking. Cast safety latches provide positive and secure load engagement.
Our lifetime warranty on all mechanical components, including the Sidewinder lever handle, is the industry's best warranty against manufacturing and material defects.
With our 3-year brake warranty, if the brake discs wear out within 3 years from the date of purchase, CMCO will replace the ratchet disc assembly free of charge.
Each unit has a unique serial number for easy and accurate identification.
GOLD CHROMATE CHAIN
Designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. by Columbus McKinnon. Protects against corrosion.
Available on 1-1/2 and 3 ton units only.
INTERNAL LOAD LIMITER
Allows the handle to rotate freely, preventing the lifting of an overload sufficient to damage the hoist. Units equipped with a load limiter feature a black hand wheel for quick and easy on-site identification.
