Columbus McKinnon Corporation introduced the CM Series 653 ratchet lever hoist with a new shorter handle design.

This change makes the Series 653 even more compact, allowing the operator to take full advantage of the 360° rotating handle with less worry of obstructions. The shorter handle
also reduces the overall weight of the hoist, making it even easier to carry and operate.

The Series 653 offers more corrosion resistant parts than the competition, and features a simple one-handed free chaining mechanism, the company says.
