IMPORTANT PRODUCT NOTIFICATION
 
Lodestar NH Load Limiter Inspection Procedure
 
Columbus McKinnon has determined that a limited number of load limiters may have slightly moved from the original factory setting on select Lodestar NH hoists. The hoist is safe to operate under recommended operational and safety requirements. While no immediate action is needed, during your next scheduled inspection you are required to inspect the load limiter per the procedure  attached here.

Affected Models
All Lodestar NH models built between January 2017 and July 2019. Affected units will have a serial number starting with "NL" with the last two letters "XN" thru "XZ" or "YA" thru "YU"

Reimbursement
If a load limiter is found during the next required scheduled inspection to be non-conforming  per the inspection procedure provided, Columbus McKinnon will reimburse the cost of a new  load limiter. In order to qualify for this reimbursement, the nonconforming load limiter must  be returned to Columbus McKinnon along with the serial number of the hoist. Reimbursement  will not be given for load limiters needing to be replaced due to normal wear and set at original  factory setting as defined in the inspection procedure below.


We apologize for any inconvenience related to this matter and remain committed to providing the best products and customer service in the industry.   Please contact your AFE Crane Sales Representative, or a Columbus McKinnon Customer Service Representative  at 276-475-1322 if you have any questions.
