Thanks for getting in touch...

As ever, there is never any issue with regard to ordering parts etc from you, in fact can't recall ever having a problem in the slightest!

I have always found it a pleasure to give Mr Ward a call with any technical queries and to catch up in general.

So please be well informed that we are happy with the service you provide.

Hi John, Just an email to say thanks for yesterday it was very educational and I came away with a lot of new information, and everyone I met was extremely friendly and helpful,. Can you also please thank Geoff, he did an exceptionally good job, and explained things very thoroughly and easy to follow with the proof being in the pudding as I have just stripped a GCH500 down and managed to put it all back together. AND IT STILL WORKS… Once again thanks and look forward to meeting you all again in the future.

Hello John and David Thankyou for your help with my lodestar model l problem, I changed the phases and the hoist is working. So I need only a short time to repair the two lodestars. Thank you very much. I like people who are specialists.

Thanks again for your help in Liverpool with Muse, above and beyond and very much appreciated. Hope you enjoyed the show.Best Regards, Reuben Pinkney, Muse rigging.

Hello Jenny I have just received my 2 hoist in fine working condition. Thank you for you support, your work and advice clearly shows that the repair shop I normally use doesn’t know what they have been doing.

We were very impressed with the Loadguard hoists we used on the Liverpool Summer Pops 2009 shows. The hoists were easy to rig, smooth running and the silent nature of the mechanism was a definite surprise. The hoists fitted seamlessly with our current control systems and presented no change to our usual hoists. The fact that all the motors were double braked and BA 7906: Part 1- Category A certified enabled us not to safety the front truss saved us both production costs and time during the load in/out and the rig moves. All in all the crew on site during the shows and for the moves were very pleased and there were no bad comments about the hoists.

Aug 26, 2011
When we decided to invest in hoists it was not a decision we took lightly. For us this represented a significant investment and with so many different hoist options available to us we undertook some serious research before parting with our cash. Before we bought our hoists we spoke to several people who had used LoadGuard and they all raved about their performance so we knew we were investing in a quality product, our only reservation was investing in a new product that was not common in the industry. We decided that we wanted the best products currently available on the market and given the number of people who loved these hoists it was only a matter of time before they became more widely available and people started spec’ing them by name. We also decided we didn’t want to invest in old obsolete technology, there may be other models of hoists out there that are more common but why should our clients have to deal with their limitations just to stick with a brand name. Our new hoists to BS 7906: Part 1- Category A have performed perfectly every time and turned quite a few heads in the process. The feedback we’ve had from our freelancers, riggers and clients has all been very positive. In the UK we have a legal duty to do everything reasonably practical to ensure the safety of our employees and the public, by deploying these hoists we feel we are fulfilling that criteria whereas a lesser quality hoist would not. In terms of build quality and features versus price I believe the LoadGuards have come out on top as a true winner and with after care from LTM I’m happy in the knowledge that should I ever need support it will be of the highest quality.

As a lighting and Rigging hire and installation company based in Ireland, through the course of our work as riggers, we use many brands of Electric Chain hoists when rigging for visiting tours. When selecting the correct hoist for any job, whether hire or install, we always consider the needs of the job, and select a hoist that best suits these needs. In the Loadguard range we have found a hoist that is extremely versatile, and can be configured to meet almost any need. Key points include: Small in size and neat in appearance Black chain as standard Choice of body suspensions Extremely silent operation Easy to maintain Great support from LTM BS7906: Part 1- Category A compliance, this is an upgraded hoist that avoids the need for secondary suspension We installed our first “All Loadguard” venue some months ago, and have heard nothing but praise from the client since. Following this we have completed all subsequent install work using only Loadguard hoists. We have now decided to replace our entire hire fleet of CM Lodestar hoists with Loadguard hoists, favouring their excellent features, value and quality. I would highly recommend the Loadguard hoist to any Entertainment or lifting industry professional.

Aug 26, 2011
We do have plans to purchase new motors and rigging and when we get to this time I will certainly be buying them from LTM based on recent price and customer service we have experienced.

We've been looking for sometime for a company to take on the test and inspection of GLS's growing rigging inventory. After several false starts from companies who should know better, we have finally found the solution. Lift Turn Move's new service met our needs perfectly, the job was done quickly and efficiently by technicians who clearly knew the requirements inside out and the documentation was prompt and correct. I cant recommend this new service enough

Aug 26, 2011

Thank you so much for the call this morning regarding use of Stac Chain. We value your knowledge and it's good to see people are looking out for us rental companies. We've decided to take your advise and go with our current stock of Stac Chain, rather than spending a lot of money unecessarily on locking clutch chains. Can you advise us if we should put any special wording in our H&S document for the tour, regarding our using Stac Chain? Thanks again for all your help.

Aug 26, 2011
Just wanted to extend my thanks to you and Geoff on a good job well done. Thanks for your efforts - we will be in touch for future jobs.

Aug 26, 2011
Hi Jenny, Thank you for all your help on this one! You have been a mega star! If you were in the ENGLAND Rugby team you would have beaten us!

Aug 26, 2011
As always I want to thank you for having the foresight to publish your news letter. Not only is it a great way to get your name in front of a lot of people but it is great press for CM and our products. Keep up the great work and thanks again for all your support.

Aug 26, 2011
Ian Hassell rang you about a query of mine a few weeks back and you were kind enough to send me a whole load of material about best practice regarding safetys on flown loads. I don't think I ever got around to thanking you properly. It really helped us sort out a response to a couple of really arsey touring riggers questioning our policy. I have noted your web site and what services you offer, and will certainly be in touch if I find myself in need of that kind of thing in future. Thanks again for your advice.

Aug 26, 2011
Thanks fore the newsletter I got from you. We have been the biggest Lodestar user in Sweden fore 10-15 years but i have never get any info regarding Lodestar. So I am very glad that you have take contact with us now I feel that we have backup and help fore the Lodestar we have. Thanks!!!!

Aug 26, 2011
Hi Dan, Meant to do this earlier but it's been one of 'those' days... Encoders turned up just after 09.30am, all good so thank you very much to all you guys over there for sorting this and getting them over to us so quickly, much appreciated.

Aug 26, 2011
Dear LTM,. I would like to thank you in the name of my team for visiting us in our lighting workshop in Dubai.. It was beneficial to get all the explanation and notes on how to deal with our own motorized chain hoist in terms of preventive maintenance and check up

Aug 26, 2011
I would like to thank you for your quick response and cooperation. We are looking forward to a new coopearation in the near future.

As a company we were looking on how we could improve our manual handling of goods both around our building and goods received and dispatch areas. A representative from LTM came to see us and recommended a manual handling system with a weight read out. This made a significant improvement in our ability to handle goods quickly and effectively. This increase in flexibility actually led us to purchase a further manual handing system. The overall service from LTM was of the highest standard, we would be pleased to recommend any potential client of the LTM brand and efficient service.

Aug 26, 2011
Hi Dan, I made it back in one piece yes. Same goes here, Nice meeting you and everybody there as indeed, it is difficult to put a face on somebody. The school was very useful, We all improved a lot on the lacks of knowledge we had before and it proved quite educational to rip a hoist completely apart and get it back together, ending up without spare screws or anything AND getting it to actually work... Good servicing a hoist is one thing, selling it another, and you know I was already a big fan of the Lodestar, be it the normal one or the direct control one. Best regards and greetings to the LTM staff.
