“To create the best ratchet lever hoist on the market, Columbus McKinnon started by asking a simple question: how do people use ratchet lever tools to perform their job?” said Andre Schon, Senior Global Product Manager – Manual Hoist Products. “A global team of CMCO engineers and application specialists performed extensive research and customer interviews to engineer and build a first-in-class product that exceeds the ergonomic and performance expectations of our customers around the world.”
The CM Tornado’s Sidewinder lever handle features
The innovation behind the CM Tornado 360 is another example of Columbus McKinnon’s continued commitment to designing and manufacturing the safest and most efficient equipment for lifting, positioning and securing loads. The Tornado is available in 3/4 and 1-1/2 ton capacities with standard lifts up to 20 feet. Additional lifts are also available. The hoist features an industry-leading lifetime warranty and meets ASME B30.21 manually operated hoist standard. The CM Tornado 360° joins the CM family of hoist products, including the CM Hurricane 360° hand chain hoist, which harness the safety and versatility of 360-degree engineering.
Outside of the North American market, this hoist is available to customers under the Yale brand as the Yale Ergo 360 ratchet lever hoist.
