FAQs

A global hero, the CM Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist is durable and robust enough to handle everyday applications in tough environments whilst being budget-friendly- for true everyday use.

With capacities up to 3Ton (6,720Lbs), the Lodestar NH is available as standard with 10ft, 15ft or 20ft lift heights whilst others are available on request. Chain bags are included.

Available with a standard hook mount or alternatively with manual push/pull and motorized trolleys. Manufactured in the United States, the CM Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist is an American classic.

 

Uniquely Versatile

Lodestar NH Hoists maintain their presence in the marketplace as one of the best, not only for their robust build quality but also for their unique versatility.

 

Suspension Points

Manual or electric trolleys enable the already hook suspended hoist to traverse horizontally long a girder whilst Beam Clamps facilitate a static suspension point.

Full adjustability of both trolleys and beam clamps provides further flexibility when mounting your CM Lodestar.

 

Chain Container

Included as standard with all Lodestar NH hoists is a translucent fabric chain container, not only does this store the slack load chain as it goes up and out of the hoist body, but it also enables you to see how much of the chain is in the container thanks to its translucent design, this can be really useful in applications where the operator cannot see the hook, the bag type design also allows for easy passing of liquid meaning if the chain gets wet it's less likely to sit in a pool of water! (models with longer lifts may require different styles of the container). Secured by a bracket and tethered by a wire rope safety wire to ensure added protection against bag-drops should a critical mounting component become damaged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friendly Features For Everyday Use

Lodestar NH is easy to operate and friendly for everyday use. Combining innovation and customer feedback from previous generation Lodestars has enabled these essential advancements in hoisting technology.

 

Quiet operation

80% quieter sound pressure compared to the classic Lodestar is achieved with innovative new features such as a 5-pocket lift wheel to reduce vibration.

 

Service-Friendly

Easy access to the clutch, motor, electrical control panel, and brake assembly make the Lodestar NH a maintenance-friendly hoist. A lifetime lubricated gearbox and helical gearing provides longevity and reduces the need for oil changes and tedious maintenance. Plug-and-play components as well as finger-safe wiring allow for quick voltage change and fuse changes.

 

Optional Features:

  • Double DC brake
  • AC Electrical brake
  • Variable speed drive (VFD) or traditional 2 speeds
  • Primary & secondary transformer fusing
  • Rotatable limit switch
  • Metal or stainless steel chain containers

 


 

 

Ergonomic & Safe

Overload Protection

A clutch located outside of the gearbox is designed to prevent lifting loads in excess of the rated capacity.

 

Limit Switch

An easily adjustable screw type limit switch is housed next to the brake, when set correctly, the limit switch automatically stops the hook at a predetermined point when lifting or lowering.

 

Easy Control

Pendant controls are designed to sit just above waist height for easy hands-on operation, traditionally fitted with single or two-step push buttons, the Lodestar NH hoist Rocket Universal Pendant (Optional Upgrade)

CM Rocket Universal Pendant includes a unique ergonomically designer rocker-switch that reduces thumb strain and fatigue while providing optimal control and precision.

LES also offer the full range of trolley mounted Lodestar's with optional integrated or separate push/pull manual trolleys, geared trolleys, and motorized trolleys. Why not upgrade your hoist to the latest in control technology and opt for the Magnetek wireless control system to be fitted at the time of purchase (call our office to discuss further) and ensure absolute safety in your loads since your operator will now be able to distance themself from the load.

For international orders, delivery times may differ, see our Shipping page
  • What is headroom?
  • 'Headroom' is a term used in relation to lifting gear to describe the distance between the lifting point and the highest point. Usually, this is in relation to hoists and refers to the distance from the bite of the load hook to the bite of the top hook (or where the trolley wheels sit on the beam). Commonly known as 'hook to hook' or 'beam to hook'.
  • Can you price match or beat an existing offer?
  • When it comes to pricing LES strive to be competitive and this means that we will always offer a fair price. Should you find an item cheaper elsewhere prior to your purchase let our team know here and we will do our very best to do better.

Our team will perform the necessary reasonable due diligence required to confirm that the items will be resold. When shipping outside of the United States sales tax can be refunded if you are able to provide us legitimate evidence that the goods have been exported outside of the USA, alternatively, we can avoid adding sales tax initially by having LES handle the export and shipping of the goods outside of the country.
