USA-based Columbus McKinnon has launched the high capacity Yale LodeKing electric wire rope hoist. Its capacity is 60 US tons (55 tonnes).

The new hoist has been engineered and built with a true vertical lift design for better load control and a centre drive configuration for improved load centring, CM said. Optional ion nitriding of sheaves and drums is available to help protect against wear.

According to Columbus McKinnon, the new Yale LodeKing is ideal for heavy-duty applications and should prove popular with the energy, marine and transportation, manufacturing and construction industries.
