3 TON RESCUE COME A LONG
c-3c, 3 tON HEAVY DUTY RESCUE HOIST
The C-3 3 Ton Heavy Duty Rescue Come-A-Long is a serious pulling device constructed with a large frame which has been specially constructed for heavy pulling and lifting necessary in heavy rescue work.
The C-3 Heavy Duty Rescue Come-A-Long utilizes a special cast aluminum alloy housing with stainless steel springs, self lubricating bearings and galvanized steel extra flexible aircraft cable, and 360 degree swiveling, drop forged steel hooks with latches for positive load engagement. All C-3 Heavy Duty Rescue Come-A-Longs are individually factory tested to 125% of rated capacity.
The proprietary telescoping reversible, handle switches positions in seconds, to provide better leverage for bigger loads, the handle extends from 37 ½” to 57” in seconds, allowing greater leverage. The handle may be inserted into the bale from either direction, permitting easy access and operation in tight places with a downward pull.
An easily replaceable shear pin in the handle assembly, breaks with audible noise to warn of serious overload. Hoist remains operational so load can be reduced as soon as possible. The handle may be easily be removed to prevent tampering with the hoist or load.
A two position handle socket adjusts for additional leverage. Lifting, pulling and most lowering can be accomplished with the socket in the standard position. For additional leverage in lowering or backing off heavy loads, the handle can be moved to the second position.
The cable has an exclusive swaged ball shank terminal assembly which provides full rated capacity without requiring cable wrapped on the drum.
With a two part line the C-3 Heavy Duty Rescue Come-A-Long’s 5/16” diameter highly flexible aircraft cable provides 7 ½ feet of lift on a 3 ton load with a handle pull of 105 lbs. The hook to hook distance is only 26 ½” inches. Total weight is 34 lbs.
A reversing lever is provided to permit lowering of loads one notch at a time. The unloaded cable may be stripped from the drum by operation of the “Quick Release” lever to permit more rapid positioning while attaching to the object to be lifted or pulled. Internal safety devices will not permit “free-wheeling” when a load/tension is applied.
REVERSIBLE TELESCOPING HANDLE - provides better leverage for bigger loads. The telescoping permits pulling from a standing position, extending from 37 1/2" to 57" in seconds to provide additional leverage for lifting heavy loads. The handle may be used in the retracted position in those situations where operating space is restricted.
TWO POSITION HANDLE SOCKET - adjusts for additional leverage. Lifting, pulling and most lowering or backing-off can be accomplished with the socket in the standard position. For additional leverage in lowering or backing-off heavy loads the handle socket can be moved to the second position.
SHEAR PIN - in the handle assembly breaks with an audible noise to warn the operator of a serious overload. The hoist remains operational permitting the load to be reduced as soon as possible. Shear pin replacement requires a matter of seconds. Each hoist is shipped with a spare shear pin allowing operations can be continued after an overload. Additional shear pins are available for a minimal charge.
CABLE EYE - A steel cable eye protects the highly flexible 1/4", 7 x 19 strand aircraft cable at the hook attachment with a large hydraulically crimped copper sleeve used to secure the cable in the eye, unlike other manufacturers who use an aluminum crimp sleeve.
SAFETY LOAD HOLDING - Unmatched smooth winch operation and precise load adjustment are the result of our precision machining to 0.001" tolerances and ISO 9001:2008 Certified quality procedures. One of two interlocking pawls is always engaged to prevent load dropping.
RAPID LOWERING - The unloaded cable may be stripped from the drum by operation of the “free wheeling” lever to permit more rapid positioning of the Come-A-Long while attached to the object to be lifted or pulled. To protect the operator and the load being lifted, Internal safety devices will not permit “free wheeling” when the load or tension on the Come-A-Long is greater than 40 lbs.
CABLE GUIDE - Based on user feedback, we have updated the design of the cable guide. The new guide (part number 753) increases the durability of the part and makes it easier and quicker to replace should it be damaged.
CABLE RETURN CRANK - The reversible handle attaches directly to the drum for slack cable take up.
FULL CABLE LENGTH OPERATION - Our exclusive steel swagged ball shank cable retention system allows the operator to utilize the entire length of the cable and pull the full rated capacity of the Come-A-Long without the requirement to maintain two or three wraps of unusable cable on the drum like other manufacturers models.
THREE HOOK OPTIONS
Three different drop forged steel hook options are available:
- Safety Latch Hook 360° swiveling hooks with safety latches for positive load engagement are standard.
- Removable Clevis Hook is available. The 360° swiveling Clevis Jaw fitting provides absolute attachment with high strength steel jaws and screw pins.
- Gate Hook option provides a 360° swiveling hook with a latch that revolves on the hook shank and locks under spring tension in open or closed position.
Minimal hoist maintenance is required. The open frame construction provides instant tool inspection, lubricated for life bearings, crimped copper cable sleeves and Marine Grade models for corrosive environments, reduce the maintenance needs.
Our hoists were the first manufactured to be ISO 9001:2015 Quality Program Certified. Our quality assurance programs are monitored and updated on a regular basis, and they feature:
- Tolerances to .001 inch
- Use of an optical comparator that assures proper fitting of parts
- Hardness testers, plug gauges and digital calipers assure continuous compliance to our high QA standards
- Use of a universal test machine for destructive testing of peak load capacities and cable stretching, accurate to 1/10th of a pound
- cycle machine that tests overall quality if the hoist
- CE and TUV certification for European markets
