What exactly is an Oversized Platform Lifter? This lifter is provided with our UHWM platform for picking up items that don’t need any manipulation other than moving from point A to point B.
Product size on the lifer below were as follows:
Length: 400mm Width: 1040mm Weight: 25 lbs max
In this example, when the operator is in need of product, they obtain a lifter and manually direct it to a pallet of product located in the staging queue. Once in place, the operator manually locks the brake on the lifter and lowers the platform to the proper position. After positioning, the operator then moves to the front of the lifter and slides the load on the platform. The operator then releases the brake, and moves the lifter to the area that requested the product and offloads it. After offloading, the operator moves the lifter back to its waiting position to await the next transport. Maximum lift height floor to top of this platform was 69”.
Shipper pallets are encouraged to be placed onto an aluminum workstation pallet to allow for lifter leg access.
