Tornado™ 360° Ratchet Lever Hoist

Featuring The Sidewinder™ Lever Handle Designed For Optimal Efficiency & Safety
Redefining lever-operated hoists, the Tornado 360°™ features the revolutionary Sidewinder™ lever handle that
allows for efficient operation in both lifting and pulling applications. Ergonomically designed for increased safety,
the patent-pending Tornado 360° lets the operator work up to 12 times faster and with as much as 30% less pull
force than with conventional ratchet lever tools.
3/4 To 9 Ton Capacities & Standard Lifts Up To 20 Feet
Benefits & Features:
• 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.

• Convenient Directional Indicator:
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 accidentally 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.

Built To Last:
Lightweight aluminum housing withstands rigorous use and
   features high-quality, long-lasting bearings. Powder coat finish provides extra
   protection in harsh environments.

• Meets ASME B30.21


• Excellent Corrosion Protection:
Robust chain guide and chain stripper made
   from cast steel and zinc-plated for corrosion protection.

• 100% Load Tested Zinc Plated Chain:
Protects against corrosion.

• Easy-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.

• Industry-Leading Warranty:
Our lifetime warranty on all mechanical
   components, including the Sidewinder lever handle, is the industry's best
   warranty against manufacturing and material defects.

Easy Identification:
Each unit has a unique serial number for easy and accurate
   identification.
Optional Features:
Shipyard Hooks: Available on 1-1/2 and 3 ton units only.

Internal Load Limiter: Allows the handle to rotate freely, preventing the lifting
   of an overload sufficient to damage the hoist. Units equipped with a load limiter
   feature a black hand wheel for quick and easy on-site identification.

The Revolutionary Sidewinder™ Lever Handle
The Tornado 360° ratchet lever hoist features the revolutionary Sidewinder™ lever handle. What makes the
Sidewinder so unique are two innovative components:
1. 360° Rotating Lever
The unique offset, or curved, design of the lever
keeps the operator's hand and body aligned with
the load chain. This reduces the risk of the twist
effect (when a hoist twists around the chain)
and the need to stabilize the hoist with another
hand.

2. Fold-Out Revolving Handle
Recessed in the lever, the heavy-duty steel core
handle folds down into position on either side
of the lever, allowing for easy operation from
any angle. The handle is grooved to provide a
secure grip – even with gloves.

The handle revolves, allowing the operator to
ergonomically and easily maintain control of
the lever through its full 360° range of motion.

Together, the Sidewinder's lever and handle
allow the operator to realize the full potential of
360° rotation, making the Tornado 360° unlike
any other ratchet lever hoist on the market:
   • 360º rotation increases efficiency, allowing
      operators to work up to 12 times faster than
      with a conventional ratchet lever hoist.
   • Minimal effort with best-in-class lever pull
      force that beats the competition.
EASILY CHANGE YOUR GRIP TO SUIT THE APPLICATION
The Tornado 360° gives operators ultimate flexibility. When an
application requires a customary ratcheting hand grip, the Tornado
360° can be operated like a traditional lever tool when the lever
handle is in the upright position.
Optional Load Limiter
Units equipped with an internal load limiter
feature a black hand wheel for quick and easy
on-site identification.


Easy-to-Use Directional Control & Free Chaining
Conventient Directional Indicator
Easy-to-use, highly visible directional indicator window located in the lever clearly shows the operating direction
as lifting (), lowering () or neutral (N).
Easy & Smooth Free Chaining
Allows for quick take up and positioning of slack chain – even with one-
handed use. Designed not to accidentally free chain while under load. Cast
chain end stop allows the user to quickly position the chain in free-chaining
mode and prevents it from entering the liftwheel and jamming the hoist.

In this mode of operation, the chain can be pulled through the hoist in either
direction by hand for quick attachment to the load. To engage the free
chaining feature, remove the load and move the directional lever to the
neutral (N) position.
Easily Carry & Transport With Just One Hand
When folded out, the lever handle can serve as a carrying grip for easy transport. Simply attach the end stop to the hook and slip the hook onto
the Sidewinder lever handle to lift and carry the unit with one hand.
