HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - ESCO Tool has introduced a new, (patent pending) dual spring safety hanger that lets users safely support and maneuver all types of heavy or bulky tools. This heavy-duty hanger is especially effective for large tools that need to be jogged into position for alignment and use.

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. Allowing operators to more easily position heavy or bulky tools, this intrinsically safe tool hanger incorporates a tamper-proof safety chain that cannot be detached.

Utilizing two drawbar springs, rated at 610 lbs. each, mounted onto 8" W x 3/8" steel plates, the MILLHOG® ET-800 Dual Spring Hanger permits 3.5" of travel and is stopped by a 48" L safety chain. Rated at 4,500 lbs., 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.

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