March 7, 2019 – Verti-Lift has released a hydraulic upender with a V-cradle design, ideal for ergonomic positioning rolls of steel, paper rolls, coils or spools, tubular tanks and other cylindrical products.
With a 6,000-pound capacity, these positioning devices can re-position heavy loads, while the V-cradle keeps the load intact during movement.
All Verti-Lift hydraulic upenders feature 0-90 degree tilt angle, hold-down tabs on all four corners, heavy-duty cylinders for maximum service life, a/c 110 volt, single-phase motor with 15-amp draw and standard hand controls for lowering/raising tilt.
Optional accessories include foot control, oversized platforms to suit specific material handling requirements, roller conveyors, accordion skirts, remote power units and PLC control.
The upenders can also position pallets loads and oddly shaped objects.
