RATCHET LEVER HOIST

The ¾- or 1-½ ton CM Bandit is the world’s first ever HMI-certified ratchet lever hoist. The CM Bandit is loaded with features that make the unit durable and simple to use, product engineers contend. Its compact design and short handle makes it ideal for use in confined spaces. Its portability, easy free chaining, and 360-degree rotating handle makes it one of the most versatile hoists on the market today.

The CM Bandit’s durable upper and lower hooks swivel and are bolted-on for easy inspection and removal. These hooks also feature wide throat openings for quick load attachment. Corrosion resistant parts and American-made, gold chromate load chain give the product long life in even the harshest environments. — Columbus McKinnon Corp., 800/888-0985; www.cmworks.com
