Lower Hook Thrust Bearing: Should be lubricated at least once a month.
Lower Hook Chain Block: Carefully check each end of the hole in the lower hook chain block when placing the chain. The larger hole should be on the top. Improper treatment can cause danger.
Lower Hook Chain Block Pin: When removing or installing the lower hook pin, care must be taken so as to prevent damaging the pin and/or hook block. These pins are tapered groove pins and as a result, they can only be removed in one direction. Refer to the Next-Gen Lodestar Hoist User Manual p.28 to have more details. Caution: Use of improper lower hook chain block pin and improper installation of the pin can cause the pin to break and allow the load to fall.
