Columbus McKinnon Expands Universal Trolley Offering to Include New Motorized Units

Versatile trolleys designed to fit virtually all CMCO electric and air chain hoists up to three tons  

Helping customers reduce inventory costs while increasing inventory flexibility, Columbus McKinnon Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCO), a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of material handling products, has expanded its CM Universal Trolley offering to include new motorized units in addition to its plain and geared models.

What makes the Universal Trolley unique is that it allows a single trolley to be used with virtually all CMCO powered chain hoists up to three-ton capacities. This reduces the need to have multiple types of trolleys in inventory, thus alleviating stock constraints at distributorships. Contact CMCO Channel Services at 800-888-0985 to learn more about this versatile product.  

The CM Universal Trolley is competitively priced and engineered for maximum versatility and long service life. Available in one-, two- and three-ton capacities, motorized Universal Trolley units are well suited to applications requiring high cycling or long-distance hoist travel. Motorized units are available with traverse speeds of 15, 35 and 75 FPM. Single-speed, three-phase controls are standard.

The motorized Universal Trolley features an easy-access control box that allows the entire cover to be removed for quick access to key components. The control box case also has a white background for increased visibility when wiring up the panel or adjusting controls. The electrical panel on motorized units can be used as a tool tray to hold items when repairing or servicing the hoist.

In addition to motorized units, the CM Universal Trolley is also available as a convertible plain model or a geared model ideal for precise hoist positioning. Other great features of the CM Universal Trolley include:

·       Easy adjustability to a wide range of beam flange widths

·       Wheels with permanently lubricated shielded ball bearings for long life and low maintenance

·       Wrap-around side plates, drop lugs and pinned suspension bolts for increased operator safety

·       Zinc-plated components for protection against wear and corrosion

·       Lifetime warranty
