The new PalletPal Roll-On with Turntable features a platform that lowers to floor height so that pallets can be placed and removed using a hand pallet truck.
Made by Southworks Products, the company says the product features a built-in turntable that allows users to effortlessly rotate loads so that they are always loading or unloading pallets from the near side.
The unit’s capacity is 2500 lbs. and its 44 in. x 48 in. platform accepts a variety of pallet sizes. The fully raised platform height is 30 in. tall.
In loading operations, Southworks says a pallet is placed on the platform and the platform is 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 company says.
Additionally, the company says the unit can be easily accessed from three sides with a minimum of stretching or reaching. Toe protection is provided on all working sides. Raising and lowering is controlled by either a pushbutton pendant or foot switch, the company adds.
