CM launches the Bandit – our lightest and most compact ratchet lever hoist ever

Bandit-BlogColumbus McKinnon is very excited to introduce its newest product, the CM Bandit 3/4 and 1-1/2 ton ratchet lever hoist, to the Canadian marketplace. The CM Bandit is loaded with Bandit-imagefeatures and benefits that will make it one of the most versatile hoists on the market today.

What makes the CM Bandit so great?
We listened to our customers and took the time to fully understand what they needed from a ratchet lever hoist. With that in mind, we designed the CM Bandit to be lightweight and compact for easy portability and use in confined spaces. We also included features like easy free chaining, a 360°rotating handle and bolted-on hooks with wide throat openings for ease of use.

As always, we kept user safety in mind. The Bandit has a screwed-on, comfort-fit rubber grip to prevent slippage; forged safety latches on the upper and lower hooks for positive and secure load engagement; double reduction gearing for lower handle effort; an enclosed Weston style break to prevent contaminants from entering; and an optional load limiter to help prevent overloading of the hoist. It also includes 100% load-tested, zinc-plated chain and parts for corrosion resistance.

Bandit-HMIWe are proud to say that the Bandit is the world’s first ratchet lever hoist to be HMI-Certified. This means that Columbus McKinnon and the Bandit has met strict HMI requirements,  including a Declaration of Conformity for technical, service and support.

We are very excited to bring this new product to our customers, knowing it addresses all of their ratchet lever hoist needs. To learn more about the CM Bandit, check out our product videos available on Youtube. These videos explain how the product works and show you all the features in action.
