CM Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist
Outstanding in Design and Performance
The CM Lodestar electric chain hoist has quieter operation, an environmentally friendly design, and easy access to components. Additionally, it has high duty cycles, less maintenance, and enhanced safety features. You don’t have to worry about the lower hook block capsizing and causing damage. The CM Lodestar electric chain hoist is also available as a 2 Ton single-reeved unit.
Less Maintenance, Easier Inspection, Longer Service Life
Designed to last a lifetime. The Heavy Duty DC Brake has helical gearing, giving you efficient operation. Its location allows you to have quick access and easy inspection.
The Gear Box contains precision gears and is lifetime grease-lubricated. This means you no longer have to do oil changes and your CM Lodestar will have a longer life.
Reduce your downtime by eliminating the need for complete disassembly of your electric chain hoist. You’ll have easy access to the clutch since it is located outside of the Gearbox.
Guaranteed by a lifetime warranty.
You’ll have easy access to the Clutch, Motor, Electrical Control Panel, and Brake Assembly.
CM Lodestar’s sound pressure is 80% less than the Classic Lodestar.
Improved Load Safety
Located outside of the load path, the clutch prevents the slipping of a load when the brake is not powered.
Improved Chain Life
The 5-Pocket Life Wheel provides better chain lift wheel engagement. You’ll have smoother lifting and reduced vibration, giving you a longer chain life.
Designed and manufactured in the USA by Columbus McKinnon. The Star Grade chain is zinc plated, protecting the chain from corrosion. The standard for a 2 Ton, single-reeved unit features a 10mm load chain.
Easy Access Control Panel
The CM Lodestar features a Control Panel with finger-safe wiring and plug-and-play connectors. You’ll have quick voltage change, access to terminal strips, and simple fuse installations.
