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.
