Columbus McKinnon Entertainment Classic Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist Is Back

AMHERST, N.Y., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbus McKinnon Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCO), a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of material handling products, is bringing the CM-ET Classic Lodestar electric chain hoist back by customer demand. Entertainment staging and rigging professionals have relied on this iconic hoist for more than three decades to lift and position everything from lighting to sound equipment in the most prestigious venues around the world.  


The Classic Lodestar is made in the USA and available through the Columbus McKinnon network of distributors. Full product information is available on the Classic Lodestar web page.

"The Classic Lodestar has been the rigging standard in the entertainment industry for decades and many of our customers have requested that we make this universally trusted hoist available again," said Steve Vitello, CMCO Executive Director of Sales & Marketing, Hoists & Rigging – North America. "We are thrilled to return the Classic Lodestar to the CM-ET portfolio to meet the overwhelming demand of its loyal user base."

"The Classic Lodestar perfectly complements the new Lodestar launched in 2011, which was designed to meet European standards. The Classic Lodestar is best suited for touring companies and indoor/outdoor productions, while the new Lodestar is ideal for permanent theater and D8+ type applications," said Vitello. "Not all entertainment venues are created equal and now customers have a choice and can select the motor that works best for their application. These exceptional motors address the entire spectrum of entertainment industry needs for every venue with uncompromised safety, performance, endurance and reliability."
