Columbus McKinnon Corp., a designer, manufacturer and marketer of material handling products, systems and services, has expanded its CM Tornado 360° ratchet lever hoist product line to include new 3 and 6-ton capacity units, which are in addition to the company’s 3/4 and 1‐1/2 ton offering.
Ergonomically designed for increased safety, the patent‐pending CM Tornado 360° allows the operator to be more productive with significantly less effort compared to conventional ratchet lever tools.
The CM Tornado’s 360° ratchet lever handle features a 360° rotating lever and a fold‐out revolving handle. Working in unison, these integrated components allow the operator to realize the full potential of 360° rotation while working in a safe and ergonomic position. This helps reduce repetitive wrist action experienced with traditional lever hoists, letting the operator utilize a full 360 ̊ range of motion to work up to 12 times faster.
The CM Tornado is available in 3/4, 1‐1/2, 3 and 6-ton capacities with standard lifts up to 20 ft. Additional lifts are also available. The hoist features an industry‐leading lifetime warranty and meets ASME B30.21 manually operated hoist standard.
Outside of the North American market, this hoist is available to customers under the Yale brand as the Yale Ergo 360°TM ratchet lever hoist.
