Caldwell Introduces New Lifting Accessories

The Caldwell Group, Rockford, Ill., has introduced several new lifting accessories, including various clamps and concrete grabs.

The Caldwell Group now offers a new line of clamps for lifting and installing wood beams and panels. The pressure clamps have an adjustable throat opening to handle a wide range of load sizes. Capacities range from 220 to 575 pounds. Polyurethane pads protect the load surface while adjustable spikes on one side provide additional gripping. A pull cord releases the clamp from the ground.

New Model UGC handle clamps are designed to handle cured concrete products. The multiple load ranges increase the versatility of the clamps and the machined pad surface grips the load. Models are available with a carrying handle only (Model UGC-150) or with a carrying handle and lifting lugs. Capacities range from 330 to 551 pounds.

The Model PFC-250 lifting clamp is now offered for lifting and installing housing panels. The locking mechanism protects from accidental load release and the pull cord allows the lifter to be released from the ground. A polyurethane pad protects the external surface of the panel. The lower lifting plate has an open design in order to clear nails or bolts. The Model PFC-250 has a rated capacity of 550 pounds.

The company has also introduced the new Model AMCS non-marring adjustable lifting clamps. These clamps are designed to handle cured concrete products. The multiple load ranges increase the versatility of the clamps. The pivoting pads align with the load surface for proper contact. The adjustable lifting points allow for a balanced lift. Two models are available with capacities of 551 or 1,100 pounds.

The company has also introduced new Model CGCS concrete grabs, designed to handle cured concrete products. The Model CGCS grabs automatically adjust to the load size within a given range. Capacities range from 551 to 2,200 pounds. Grabs are available with serrated steel cams to securely grip the load or polyurethane pads to grip the load without damaging the surface. All models have an easy-to-release manual latch.
