COLUMBUS MCKINNON / Ratchet lever tool


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

Columbus McKinnon started out with a fundamental question: how do people use ratchet lever tools to perform their jobs? They then engineered and built a first-in-class product that exceeds ergonomic and performance expectations. YaleERGO 360 features the patented Crank Handle, designed for optimal efficiency and safety. Its unique foldable lever handle and 360-degree rotating action increases productivity while reducing the risk of operator injury and fatigue. Works up to 12 times faster and requires 30% less pull force to operate than conventional ratchet levers. The convenient directional indicator shows the operating direction.
