The CM Hurricane hand chain hoist is an economical, high quality, rugged unit that has several features unique to a hoist of this class. Designed with fewer parts for long life and minimal maintenance, this hoist can be used to lift loads in numerous industrial, construction and commercial applications. The special brake design uses a single disc brake that does not incorporate a ratchet pawl or pawl springs like other chain hoists. Fewer parts means less wear and lower maintenance. The handwheel cover rotates 360 degrees for hoist operation in any direction, making it ideal for special rigging applications. The frame and housings are constructed from impact resistant stamped steel and feature a powder coated finish for durability and corrosion resistance. All internal gears and pinions are heat treated for high strength and long life. Top quality bushings and sealed ball bearings are used throughout the entire unit. The precision 4-pocket liftwheel is fully machined for better chain fit and reduced wear, plus the chain guide and stripper assures proper chain alignment every time. Hardened steel chain and forged hooks with heavy duty cast steel latches complete this industrial grade assembly. Meets ASME B30.16 Overhead Hoist Standard and European CE Standard. 5 year manufacturer's warranty against defects in material and workmanship included.
