Crank-operated speaker stand for easier speaker hoisting.
The Hercules SS710B is a lightweight, heavy-duty speaker stand with a convenient hand crank that makes it easier to hoist your speakers up to the right height. Some of today's powered speakers are pretty heavy and require a couple of burly band members to mount them onto the speaker stands. With the Hercules SS710B, just mount the speakers onto the stand in the "down" position and crank it up to the desired height.
The system allows just one person to easily raise and lower speakers or lights thanks to a revolutionary system that drives two posts simultaneously. Turn the handle clockwise for fast and effortless loading, and counterclockwise for lowering. The dual brace leg construction reinforces and strengthens without excess weight. The SS710 comes with a stand adaptor that accommodates all contemporary speaker mounting flanges.

Comments about Hercules Stands Speaker Stand with Adaptor:
If you have the same anxiety I've always felt when you lift that heavy speaker cabinet up over your head and try to line it up on the speaker stand, this unit is for you! I bought two of these units for my Yamaha Powered 15" speaker systems and I'll never have to lift these monsters over my head again.
These are really heavy duty stands with wide spanning legs to keep the unit very stable. The crank mechanism is what really makes the difference: you place the speaker on the automatic gripping adapter at about chest height. Then you crank the speaker up as high as you want it. I haven't ever used the full height, but it will hit a standard ceiling if you wanted your speakers that high.
I have one small caution: I have bought other items from Hercules and their products are strong and well-designed. BUT I have seen a little bit of a quality-control issue. One of these stands had a minor problem when it arrived: only one of the sections would telescope. I pulled and pushed a bit and it snapped back into place and the unit works fine now. A guitar stand (double AGS stand) is also a wonderful piece of gear, but my first one arrived with the grip claws misaligned and had to be replaced.
This is a minor caution: Musician's Friend and Hercules have been great about replacing the guitar stand and I didn't need any swap out with the speaker stand. My guess is that Hercules has these made in China for them and they've had to deal with some manufucturing glitches there.
Bottom Line: I love these stands and would recommend them, but if you buy a Hercules product (at least for the near future) open it and check it out right away. Don't let it sit in the box until you need it for a gig.
