Manual palletizer

August 1, 2008




Accommodating any open-bottom pallet or skid, Southworth’s Roll-In level loader is a manual palletizer that simplifies loading and unloading full pallets. Cutouts in its low-profile platform allow the forks of a hand pallet truck to roll into the platform, level with the top, so the load is evenly placed when the pallet truck is lowered and rolled away. A powered foot switch allows hand-free adjustment of platform height, while a scissor-lift platform can be accessed from all sides. A full-perimeter auto-stop toe guard provides an added measure of safety. Available with a capacity of 2,500 or 4,000 lbs., the loader has lowered heights of 3-1/4 or 4 in., raised heights of 35-3/4 or 36-1/2 in. and platform sizes of 48 x 53 or 51 x 53 in.
