Ergonomic Line of Lifters, Transporters

October 26, 2010
The foot-pump hydraulic lifter/transporters offer infinite height adjustment (within range) with a 20:1 mechanical advantage. Ergonomic improvements on every new model include: A “Multi-Grip” Position Handle with sure-grip cushioning and gentle contours that allow users to pick the most comfortable hand position for what they are doing — pushing, pulling, maneuvering, or raising loads; A “Qwik-Grip” Lowering Handle with an oversized, open-triangle design; A 180 degrees Access Foot Pedal with a large, open-loop design that allows it to be pumped from different angles at the rear or side of the unit. The lifts are available in seven models with a wide range of capacities, lifting heights, and platform sizes. Configurations include single-scissor, double-scissor, high-lift and heavy-duty. A low-profile model has a platform that descends to 3.2-inches from the floor and is available with forks for use with skids and plastic pallets. All units feature steerable caster-type wheels; parking locks; and attractive, colorful, enamel-and-chrome finishes.
