Introducing our popular CM Series 653 ratchet lever hoist redesigned with a shorter handle (short handle on the 34 and 1 12 ton only). This modest modification makes a world of difference. Ideal for confined work areas, the Series 653 34 and 1 12 ton models are now some of the most nimble and easiest to operate hoists on the market today.

Shorter Handle on 34 and 1 12 Ton Models

With the shorter handle the overall weight of the hoist is reduced, making it even easier to carry and operate. Storage and transportation is less of a problem with the smaller size and using the lever in a 360º rotation is easier with less worry of obstructions.

    These hoists are very reliable. I work in the utility trade as a Journeyman Lineman. Sagging wire, to stretching glass, this is a handy piece of equipment. Fast shipping and reasonably priced!
