The CM Cyclone Hand Chain Hoist features superior engineering, efficiency and durability and is considered one of the most popular and reliable hand chain hoists ever designed. It also boasts the most interchangeability of parts in the industry. Furthermore, each Cyclone hoist is inspected over 75 times to meet or exceed HMI and ASME / ANSI performance and safety standards. A load limiter is standard for automatic overload protection. Braking is provided via an enclosed, contoured, Weston-type automatic brake for positive load control. Cyclone hoists also feature high-efficiency spur gearing for greater lift with minimum effort. Rugged Hoistaloy chain is included for added strength and durability. Liftwheel pockets are fully machined and forged for easier lifting and smooth free chaining. Only high-strength aluminum alloy castings are used in frame and covers. Metric rated and made in the U.S.A.
