ESCO MILLHOG® Safety Tool Hanger Simplifies Heavy Tool Alignment

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - ESCO Tool has introduced a new, patented safety chain lanyard with dual spring hangers that offset the weight of a heavy tool to facilitate alignment and improve operator safety.

The MILLHOG® ET-800 Dual Spring Hanger with an integral safety chain lets users safely maneuver all types of heavy or bulky tools without worrying about spring-only hangers that could break. Featuring a top and bottom steel plate, two drawbar springs, and a built-in chain, this safety hanger provides the balance and control needed to simplify heavy tool alignment.

Designed to limit the travel of the springs to 3.5" and prevent bottoming out, breakage, and personal injury, the MILLHOG® ET-800 Dual Spring Tool Hanger is intrinsically safe because the 48" L chain is rated at 4,500 lbs., is secured into milled slots on the two 8" W x 3/8" steel plates, and is retained by welded covers. Each drawbar spring is rated at 610 lbs.

The MILLHOG® ET-800 Dual Spring Hanger sells for $895.00 (list) with OEM quantity discounts available. Price quotations are available upon request.
