Cable Drum Replacement?

In 2008 we went to a “Quick Change” drum on the LH2000, LH200 and the LH400. The side of the base sections have a bright yellow sticker identifying the “Quick Change” drum. The quick change drum for the LH200/2000 (48493X) is 14.53 inches wide, the old drum is 15.875 inches (48508X). The TP250 and TP400 uses the quick change drum.

What model of hoist do I have so I can look for the parts diagram online?

On the older models, there are no markings on the carriage or base, the parts diagram cover pages have images that you can match to your unit. Starting in 2014 the base of the hoist should have a date label and serial number. The model number should be on the label.

Please follow and like us:
How high can the hoist go?

43 or 44ft depending on hoist. Max of five 8ft tracks, units come with 3, so they can only add 2 more. 60005 telescopic support brace for over 28ft required. Hoists come equipped with enough cable to go up to the Max height. The TP series will go to 44 ft max.

What oil should I use?

10w30, both gear and crank case: Honda and Lifan.

Is there oil in the engine?

The Lifan engine has the GEAR prefilled, do not add (already preloaded with 2.5 oz of oil). The crank case case is empty, fill with 20 oz or .6L of 10W-30. The Honda engine is different, there is NO oil in either gear of crank case. Refer to manual with engine for further info.
