Affected Products: All MLK or HLK series hoists
Affected Date Range: From Initial Launch
Related Issue: ZD#2580382
MLK and HLK series hoists have different vanes, which is indicated in their parts manuals. However, the vane and spring kit listed in the MLK parts manual (MLK-K4243-7) and the vanes listed in the HLK parts manual (MR-42-7) can be used interchangeably as both hoists have the same rotor.
Part # MLK-K4243-7 includes the vanes and a spring kit, which would allow better low speed spotting control of the hoist. In addition, the vanes in MLK-K4243-7 feature a notch, which allows the spring to sit on the vane. The vane and spring kit is included in the MHLK-HSK rebuild kit, used on both the HLK and MLK series hoists. By replacing MR-42-7 with MLK-K4243-7, there would be no reduction in performance.
Part # MR-42-7 includes just the vanes and is standard to the HLK series hoists. Figure 1 below highlights the visual differences between the two. Both parts manuals are attached as files for reference.
MLK/HLK Vanes Comparison:
