New PalletPal 360 Air level loader
an ergonomic asset for operators
Apr 23, 2012 7:00 AM
The new PalletPal 360 Air level loader from Southworth Products allows operators to build or break down pallet loads with a minimum of bending, reaching, stretching, or walking around.
This unit automatically adjusts the height of pallets as boxes are added or removed. Height adjustment is achieved by a heavy-duty reinforced rubber air bag that maintains the top layer of stacked containers at a convenient height.
The PalletPal 360 Air can accommodate loads from 400 to 4,500 lbs. Its turntable ring (or optional turntable platform) allows the user to effortlessly rotate the load so he or she can stand in the same spot during loading or unloading.
All of the unitís components are contained within the diameter of the turntable ring so users can step closer, allowing full 360ļ access. This makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer, and easier, virtually eliminating lifting and the other productivity-robbing, injury-producing movements common to pallet-loading applications. Ideal for non-uniform loads, the PalletPal 360 Air has a base that is extremely stable and requires no floor lagging.
This unit does not need to use electrical power. Once the air bag is inflated by shop air or a portable compressor, it can be used anywhere. Fork pockets at the base allow for easy relocation.
