Columbus McKinnon (CM Lodestar) is one of the oldest hoist manufacturers on the planet, favoured highly in the Entertainment Industry. Lodestar hoists are proudly built in the USA, with a heavy-duty enclosed construction, making them ideal candidates for the outdoors and those tougher environments.

Becoming more and more a favourite amongst our industrial clients for their simplicity and easy maintenance design, combined with effective functionality, Lodestar hoists offer built-in adaptable upper and lower limit switches, standard 48v low voltage controls, overload protection and thermal overload protection, lifetime lubricated gearboxes, load hook with axial bearing, 50% duty rating as standard, as well as carrying handles for single-phase units and optional suspension trolleys to enable horizontal traverse along 'I' Beams.
