One of our top-selling products here at American Crane, Columbus McKinnon (CM) Corp.’s Series 653 Lever Operated Hoist provides unmatched durability and strength for close-quarter pulling, stretching, and hoisting. Rugged and versatile, this steel hoist features a characteristic short handle, which requires minimal lever pull effort, making this tool well-suited for a wide range of applications.
With a lifting capacity of ¾ ton to 6 tons, the Series 653 is impact-resistant, featuring a stamped steel frame. Its lightweight gear case and cover are designed for optimal durability, and its powder-coated finish allows for superior corrosion protection. This lever operated hoist also includes hardened steel load-sharing gears, as well as a double-pawl arrangement for reliable load control.
Two chain guide rollers allow for positive chain engagement, while a Weston-type braking system enables positive load control and positioning. The 653 model also allows for simple, one-handed free chaining for fast load attachments.
Series 653’s hardened steel chain provides strength and long wear life and forged upper and lower hooks feature heavy-cast steel latches. Finally, its rubber handle grip provides added operator comfort.
Metric-rated and easily meeting the ASME B30.21 standard as well as the European CE standard, the Series 653 Lever Operated Hoist needs only minimal, standard maintenance and does not require any special tools. For added assurance, American Crane & Equipment Corp. offers a five-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
