Columbus McKinnon adds motorized units to CM Universal Trolley offerings
Columbus McKinnon has expanded its CM Universal Trolley offering to include new motorized units in addition to its plain and geared models.
The Universal Trolley allows a single trolley to be used with virtually all CMCO powered chain hoists up to three-ton capacities. This reduces the need to have multiple types of trolleys in inventory, thus alleviating stock constraints at distributorships.
Available in one-, two- and three-ton capacities, motorized Universal Trolley units are suited to applications requiring high cycling or long-distance hoist travel. Motorized units are available with traverse speeds of 15, 35 and 75 FPM. Single-speed, three-phase controls are standard.
The motorized Universal Trolley features an easy-access control box that allows the entire cover to be removed for quick access to key components. The control box case also has a white background for increased visibility when wiring up the panel or adjusting controls. The electrical panel on motorized units can be used as a tool tray to hold items when repairing or servicing the hoist.
Other features include easy adjustability to a wide range of beam flange widths, wheels with permanently lubricated shielded ball bearings for long life and low maintenance; wrap-around side plates, drop lugs, and pinned suspension bolts for increased operator safety; zinc-plated components for protection against wear and corrosion, and a lifetime warranty.
