Features & Benefits

Tornado 360 Specs


  • Sidewinder lever handle. This first-of-its-kind lever handle design will revolutionize the ratchet lever hoist industry.
  • Its unique foldable handle and 360˚ rotating lever increases productivity while reducing the risk of operator injury.
  • Easy-to-use, highly visible directional indicator located on the handle clearly shows the operating direction as lifting, lowering or neutral.
  • Easy & Smooth free chaining. For quick take up and positioning of slack chain – even with one hand. Designed not to accidently free chain while under load.
  • Cast chain end stop allows the user to easily position the chain in free-chaining mode and prevents it from entering the liftwheel and jamming the hoist.
  • Positive load control. Fully enclosed Weston-type brake stays clean and dry for precise load positioning.
  • Lightweight aluminum housing withstands rigorous use and features high-quality, long-lasting bearings. Powder coat finish provides extra protection in harsh environments.
  • East to inspect swivel hooks. Bolt-on hooks with nylon locks help users comply with ASME B30.21 and B30.10 inspection requirements.
  • Hooks are forged, allowing them to yield under overload without breaking. Cast safety latches provide positive and secure load engagement.
  • Robust chain guide and chain stripper made from cast steel and zinc-plated for corrosion protection.
  • Each unit has a unique serial number for easy and accurate identification.
  • Lifetime warranty on all mechanical components, including the Sidewinder lever handle, is the industry’s best warranty against manufacturing and material defects.
