CM Hurricane 2 Manual Hoist
CM® Hurricane hand operated chain hoists are highly versatile materials handling equipment that can be used to effectively lift loads. The frame and covers are made from steel stampings. Internal gears are made of high grade, heat treated steel. Shielded ball bearings or bushings support the heat treated steel liftwheel. Latch type, forged steel upper and lower hooks are standard. A dry type friction brake that does not include pawls and ratchet found in similar hoists provides positive load control and will suspend the load at any point.
Hoists with load ratings of 1/2, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 ton are available and this manual applies to all of these units. Standard lifts are 8, 12 and 20 feet and hoists with longer lifts are available on a special, per order basis. Plated steel hand chain is provided with a drop that is 2 feet less than the lift of the hoist.
