Classic Lodestar Small Frame - Protector Kit
The Protector is designed to allow the intermediate gear to slip on an excessive overload.
To assure safe operation, extra long life and top performance, a regular inspection procedure must be initiated to replace damaged parts.
The Protector should operate for the normal life of the hoist without service.
This device has been lubricated and calibrated at the factory for a specific model of a hoist. It is not adjustable or interchangeable.
For proper overload protection, be sure before installing a Protector that it is correct for the unit. The spring washer of the Protector had been color-coded at the factory. Please refer to the CM hoist replacement parts user manual - Classic Lodestar (p.11)
CAUTION: The Protector is susceptible to overheating and wear when slipped for extended periods. Under no circumstance should the clutch be allowed to slip for more than a few seconds. Due to the above, a hoist equipped with a Protector is not recommended for use in any application where there is a possibility of adding to an already suspended load to the point of overload. This includes dumbwaiter installations, containers that are loaded in mid-air, etc.
