Hoist also serves as a great medical hoist and hospital hoist where cleanliness is

corrosive materials, or sanitary conditions, the Lodestar offers superior efficiency
and versatility for your material handling needs.

¼, ½, 1 and 2 ton single and two-speed options provide for heavier duty applications

and semi-conductor environments.

full washdown and humid environments. A variety of accessories such as stainless
