Ingersoll Rand Releases New SLB Silver Series Lever Hoists



Annandale, N.J. December 19, 2006 Ingersoll Rand now offers its SLB Silver Series lever hoists, featuring a lighter weight construction and better impact resistance for increased durability and reliability. The new lever hoists are ideal for a variety of material handling and industrial applications, including maintenance and repairs, utilities, oil refineries, steel mills and foundries, shipbuilding and general construction.

The SLB Silver Series consists of five models with rated capacities ranging from 3/4-ton to 6 tons. The new hoists meet or exceed all regional safety requirements, are CE-certified and provide many new features and benefits to the operator.

The SLB Silver Series hoists are designed for easier operation. The deep lug knobs and double reduction gearing allow for one-handed operation with minimal handle effort. Double chain guides ensure proper load chain tracking and smooth operation around the load sheave. The SLB Silver Series also features a 360-degree handle and stroke design, optimal in tight spaces.

The premium-grade alloy load chain and hardened swivel-latch hooks provide additional durability and increase operator safety while the automatic inertia brake minimizes operator error when a load is applied in free-chain mode. The nickel- and chrome-plated exterior and zincplated frame protects hoists from corrosion.

The encased and retained roller bearings and open-frame design of the new hoists also makes maintenance easier, allowing operators to clean and inspect with increased efficiency and< minimal hassle.
