Columbus McKinnon Corp. has launched a new line of wire rope hoists in capacities of 25 tons to 50 tons.
All Yale Global Max HC hoists feature an external hoist motor to optimize cooling and maximize accessibility, according to the company. The remote mounting of the hoist motor and brake prevents heat transfer in either direction.
The hoists also feature a sealed, fully enclosed pressure-tested gearbox with all of the gears inside the gearbox submerged in oil. The hoist’s fully enclosed free-loop guide is designed to eliminate a slack rope condition during operation, according to the company.
