One of the many uses for Shop Lift  is workpiece loading in tooling shops, especially when space is limited.

Shop Lift  is said to be an economical yet very rugged device, built to fit through most standard doorways, carrying up to a 600 lb. payload and delivering it safely to a machine, storage rack, pallet, loading bay or onto a truck.  With a gross weight of 700 lbs. and small footprint measuring only 28" wide x 72" high x 61" long, this compact yet powerful device protects workers and loads alike.  Plus, there's none of the odor from propane tanks and virtually none of the noise usually associated with conventional forklifts. 

Driven by a 12-V electric-powered hydraulic pump with built-in battery and charger, Shop Lift  features standard 18" long sturdy steel forks with 9" load center, adjustable from 8-18" wide and with tilting to 15°, capable of elevating a load up to 51" off the floor, with a reach-in capacity of 28" forward extension.  Various loads, including pallets, round bar stock, molds, tooling, crates and heavy workpieces, can be transported safely and easily by a solitary operator using the onboard pendant control.

Shop Lift operates on the principal of counterbalance.  The hydraulics are rated to 1200 lbs. and the heavy-duty steel structure remains rigid, while riding quietly on molded polyurethane or cast steel 8" diameter wheels with foot-engaged floor lock.  With a tight turning circle of only 67", the Shop Lift  is highly maneuverable and remains impervious to uneven surfaces on the plant, warehouse or shop floor.-[email protected]
