Herkules' New Zero Level Lift & Tilt

Walled Lake, Michigan. April 7, 2009. Herkules Equipment Corporation's New Zero Level Lift and Tilt provides an easy method for loading material onto a lift table using a pallet jack. No need to wait for a fork lift or spend money on expensive floor excavation. The lift's platform is only 3/8" lowered and the lift travels 25.5 inches. The tilt can be operated independently of the lift, positioning materials perfectly within the operator's reach for better ergonomics.

The 2,000 lb capacity lift and tilt is controlled easily with a joystick controller on a pedestal. Roller wheels are captured to prevent the lift table from tipping, and internal anchoring holes are provided to secure the lift to the floor. Safety skirting is available.
