Columbus McKinnon announces electric chain hoist color changes

Color changes designed to simplify and reduce customers' parts inventory.

Columbus McKinnon Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of material handling products, has announced new color combinations for the CM Man Guard, Budgit BEHC and Yale KELC electric chain hoists.

The color modifications are intended to simplify the parts ordering process. The three hoists share the same motor design, so the change to one common black motor and brake cover will reduce the need to carry multiple parts in inventory.

These color changes are a running change as the company clears out its current inventory. To learn more, go to www.cmworks.com.
