Pallet Load Leveler

Related Topics:

A hydraulic load leveler for manually loading and unloading pallets has been introduced by Presto Lifts Inc. The P4 is designed to improve worker productivity, while reducing worker fatigue. Its platform lowers to floor height, so pallets can be placed and removed using a hand pallet truck.

 

In loading operations, a pallet is placed on the platform and the platform is then raised by hydraulic power to its full “up” position. As goods are loaded onto the pallet, the platform is lowered so that each succeeding tier of goods can be loaded at the same height.

 

When unloading pallets, the platform starts at its lowest height and is progressively raised so that each succeeding tier of goods can be removed at the same height.

 

The leveler can be accessed from four sides. The units are equipped with a photoelectric toe guard, which will stop downward travel if the beam is interrupted, according to the company. Unit capacity is 4,000 lbs, making the leveler suitable for most pallet loads that can be moved with hand equipment.
