July 25, 2017 - Columbus McKinnon Corporation has expanded its CM Tornado 360° ratchet lever hoist product line to include new 3 and 6 ton capacity units. Ergonomically designed for increased safety, the patent‐pending CM Tornado 360° allows the operator to be more productive with significantly less effort compared to conventional ratchet lever tools. 
 
“Since the initial launch of the CM Tornado 360° late last year, we have continued to look for ways to make this innovative hoist even more versatile for our customers,” said Andre Schon, Senior Global Product Manager – Manual Hoist Products. “With the addition of 3 and 6 ton units to our initial 3/4 and 1‐1/2 ton offering, we have rounded out our product portfolio and given customers even more options for their lifting, positioning and pulling applications.”

The CM Tornado 360° redefines ratchet lever hoists with its unique Sidewinder lever handle. The Sidewinder lever handle features a 360‐degree rotating lever and a fold‐out revolving handle. Working in unison, these integrated components allow the operator to realize the full potential of 360° rotation while working in a safe and ergonomic position. This helps reduce repetitive wrist action experienced with traditional lever hoists, letting the operator utilize a full 360˚ range of motion to work up to 12 times faster.  

The CM Tornado is available in 3/4, 1‐1/2, 3 and 6 ton capacities with standard lifts up to 20 feet. Additional lifts are also available. The hoist features an industry‐leading lifetime warranty and meets ASME B30.21 manually operated hoist standard.  

Outside of the North American market, this hoist is available to customers under the Yale brand as the Yale Ergo 360° ratchet lever hoist.
