The CM Lodestar® electric chain hoist is now available as an economical 2-ton, single-reeved unit. Made in America by Columbus McKinnon Corporation, the CM Lodestar is a lifting powerhouse well suited to a variety of industrial applications.

The new 2-ton, single-reeved Lodestar features 10 millimeter, zinc-plated Star Grade load chain that is designed and manufactured in the USA by Columbus McKinnon. And, because it’s a single-reeved unit, the design prevents the lower hook block from capsizing and damaging the hoist.

The Lodestar electric chain hoist is known for reliable operation throughout its long service life. It requires less maintenance and allows for easy access to key components for inspection and repairs. The Lodestar features a 5-pocket lift wheel for better chain engagement, as well as a clutch located outside of the load path to prevent overload conditions. It also exceeds H4 requirements and is engineered for high duty cycles.
