Features and Benefits

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Tornado 360 Lever Hoist

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.

EASY & SMOOTH FREE CHAINING

For quick take up and positioning of slack chain - even with one hand. Designed not to accidentally 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.

CONVENIENT DIRECTIONAL INDICATOR

Easy-to-use, highly visible directional indicator located on the handle clearly shows the operating direction as lifting, lowering or neutral.

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.

POSITIVE LOAD CONTROL

Enclosed Weston-type brake stays clean and dry for precise load positioning.

EXCELLENT CORROSION PROTECTION

100% load tested zinc-plated chain, robust chain guide and chain stripper made from cast steel and zinc-plated for corrosion protection.

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.

INDUSTRY-LEADING WARRANTY

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.

STANDARDS AND REGULATIONS

Meets ASME B30.21

EASY IDENTIFICATION

Each unit has a unique serial number for easy and accurate identification.

LIFETIME WARRANTY

Redefining the Lever Tool

The patented CM Tornado 360˚ ratchet lever hoist features the revolutionary Sidewinder™ lever handle for safety and efficiency. What makes the Sidewinder so unique are two innovative components. A 360˚ Rotating Lever safely keeps the operator's hand and body aligned with the load chain. The Fold-Out Revolving Handle folds down into position on either side of the lever, allowing for easy and swift operation from any angle.
