Features and Benefits

Better control on long lifts 2 speed motor: smooth, slow speed starts and stops, fast speed for load transition.
Variable frequency drive (VFD) option is also available on the Lodestar.
Precision machined and hardened liftwheel: exact fit of chain in liftwheel provides smoother operation and reduces chain vibration.

Rugged design to withstand the application and environment.

  • Heavy duty motor:
    H4 duty rating provides ability to lift equipment over 300 feet (91 metres) without interruption.
  • Dual Braking system:
    Uses an AC type brake and electrodynamic brake. Electro- dynamic braking eliminates heat generated by typical designs.
    Reduces maintenance, changing of oil, and wear on parts.
  • NEMA 3R enclosure: enclosure provides extra protection to internal parts, which also helps reduce maintenance
  • Zinc-plated chain: protects chain and prevents corrosion.

Reduce hoist maintenance costs

  • Grease Lubrication:
    Eliminates the need to drain and change the oil which is required every 200 hours in most other hoists designs. Provides
  • superior gear protection.
  • Lifetime lubricated.
  • No special tools required to disassemble:
    Quick and easy hoist inspections and maintenance.
  • Upper and lower limit switches:
    Prevents the lower hook from running to the bottom of the hoist which can lead to hoist and equipment damage.
  • Readily available hoist parts:
    Readily available parts from authorized distributors reduces downtime.
  • Lifetime Warranty: Superior hoist design.


  • Overload protection:
    Prevents lifting more than rated capacity protecting operators and equipment.
  • Upper and lower limit switches:
    Helps prevent equipment damage.
  • Training: Safety, inspection, and proper hoist and rigging technique classes available.
  • Lower hook impact protection:
  • Prevents tower damage from load hook during no load lifting and lowering.
