Dual Spring Hanger
ESCO Tool (Holliston, MA) has introduced new, patent pending, dual spring hanger that lets users safely maneuver all types of heavy or bulky tools, says the company. The MILLHOG® ET-800 Dual Spring Hanger features a top and bottom steel plate, two drawbar springs, and a built-in safety chain that prevents the springs from bottoming out, wearing excessively, and breaking. Utilizing two drawbar springs, rated at 610 pounds each and mounted onto 8- x 3/8-inch steel plates, the hanger permits 3.5 inches of travel and is stopped by a 48-inch L safety chain. Rated at 4,500 pounds, the chain is shorter than the travel of the drawbar springs and the links are secured into milled slots on the plates and retained by welded covers.
