Herkules Zero Level Post Lift Reduces Back Injuries

Walled Lake, Michigan - Herkules Equipment Corporation's Zero Level Post Lift has solved a customer's ergonomic problem, resulting in reduced back injuries. The customer needed a lift where the operator could drive a pallet jack with a skid of cartons directly onto a lowered lifting platform. The operator could unload the skid, and then raise it to a convenient level where the cartons could be removed. The objective was to reduce back injuries due to operators bending over to unpack the lower rows of boxes. Herkules Zero Level Post Lift provided the correct ergonomic lifting height with the ability to easily load the material onto the lifting platform.

The electric hydraulic Post Lift utilizes a hydraulic ram with a chain pulley mechanism. The unit is electrically powered by a 220V-240V 3 phase 20A electric motor with post-mounted hydraulic pump and reservoir. "User Friendly" controls can be either mounted on the post or used remotely via a 12 foot cord.

The customer needed a 44" x 52" lifting platform, but the platform can be designed to accept almost any size pallet or cart. A manually released Cam-lock system, standard on every Herkules Post Lift, prevents the lift platform from free falling.

Herkules Equipment Corporation has been manufacturing Pneumatic Lifting Equipment for over 25 years, including (standard and custom); Lift Tables, Lift & Rotates, Lift & Tilts, Operator Lifts, Power Rotate Systems, Lifts for Integration, Cart Positioners, and Pallet Positioners. Herkules has now expanded its' product offerings under a new brand name, Enkon Systems, that includes Electric Lift Systems and Hydraulic Lift Systems.
