Caldwell Lifting System Wins Award

Caldwell’s recently launched multi-grapple lifting system has been named to Equipment Today’s 2020 Contractors’ Top 50 New Products.

Equipment Today, a nationally recognized equipment magazine serving commercial construction contractors, has selected the multi-grapple lifting system as one of the favored new construction products of 2020.

The editorial teams from Equipment Today and compiled product inquiries and web page views from new products featured in Equipment Today over a 12-month period from May 2019 to April 2020. Winning products represent the leading edge of innovation, quality, efficiency and productivity in the construction equipment field today.

The multi-grapple lifting system is suited to use in any environment where handling of irregular shaped or inconsistent loads is required. Rock / stone; steel scrap, including metal shavings; and wooden blocks are just a few examples. The system is available in 3,000-lb. to 12,000-lb. capacities; it can work with a crane hook but is more commonly used in conjunction with outdoor construction equipment, such as excavators and backhoes. The multi-grapple lifting system eliminates the requirement for synthetic slings. The product can be shipped in less than 10 days.
