Columbus McKinnon manufactures and markets a wide range of overhead cranes and hoists for use in diverse applications and industries around the world.
From our 550 lb. capacity Series 602 Mini Ratchet lever hoist that can fit in your lunch box to our 60 Ton high capacity LodeKing electric wire rope, we have the right hoist for your application. Whether chain or wire rope hoists, electric or pneumatic hoists; our line of powered hoists are ideal in manufacturing, power generation, and industrial facilities where heavy items are lifted and positioned as part of production or warehousing. We offer a full line of manual hoists, both hand chain and lever tools, which are used primarily for maintenance and construction activities.
Although many hoists are standard "off the shelf" units, we can modify most hoists to meet your exact requirements. Extra-long lifts, variable frequency drives for precise positioning, and special hook/trolley configurations are just a few modifications that can be made to the standard line of hoists. Overhead crane and hoists can be integral part of overhead lifting systems that combine a crane or jib as an attachment point, and below-the-hook lifting devices for securely attaching a load.
