Portable Material Lift for Construction and Industrial Applications
Genie Industries' Superlift Contractor(TM) (SLC) is designed with the contractor in mind. The SLC is lightweight and portable. Its heavy-duty design includes a fixed steel base and it safely lifts up to 650 lbs (295 kg) with six different load handling attachments available. The SLC has a working height up to 24 ft (7.32 m). Setup is quick and requires no tools. The machine is easy to load and maneuver. The lightweight aluminum construction means years of durable service and holding up in severe weather conditions. Loads are lifted by an aircraft-quality cable controlled by a heavy-duty winch. Non-marking Performa(TM) casters prevent marking floors or picking up debris that could otherwise damage a floor. Four inch (10 cm) front casters and 5 in (13 cm) rear casters with side brakes are standard. Heavy-duty one-speed or optional two-speed winch incorporates a silent ratchet system. The two-speed winch shifts gears "on the fly," without removing or reattaching handles, to lift loads faster. All cables are threaded inside the mast assembly to protect them from possible damage. The SLC loads easily into a pickup truck for transporting. Glide rails allow one person to load the unit on and off a vehicle in one fluid motion. A hold-down bar holds mast assembly in place during transport. All load handling attachments are sold separately and are interchangeable with a simple pin on the carriage assembly. Attachments available are standard forks, adjustable forks, fork extensions, boom pip cradle and load platform.
