Columbus McKinnon Launches Ultra-Low Headroom Wire Rope Hoist

Columbus McKinnon Corp. introduces the Yale LodeKing LT ultra‐low headroom, top‐running wire rope hoist. Available in capacities ranging from 10 to 25 tons, the LodeKing LT is the ideal for facilities with space limitations.  

Manufactured in Wadesboro, North Carolina, the LodeKing LT is designed for heavy‐duty CMAA Class D service. Each hoist comes equipped with a Magnetek closed‐loop variable frequency drive that allows for accurate and precise load control while reducing brake wear. Packed with industry‐leading safety and performance features, the Magnetek IMPLUSE VG+ Series 4 drive includes multiple control and power supply options, an external hoist brake resistor, motor thermal overload protection, keypad with digital display and a recorded fault history that aids in troubleshooting and maintenance.  

The LodeKing LT also features plastic‐infused wire rope specifically developed for maximum performance on overhead cranes. This unique wire rope has a plastic core that prevents metal‐to‐metal contact between strands, helping to reduce abrasion and wear within the wire rope, while increasing the rope strength by 15 to 20 percent.
