Linear Slide Load Carrier relieves radial forces.

Linear Slide Load Carrier relieves radial forces.

Supported on its own end supports and guide rails, flexibly-coupled linear slide load carrier removes twisting and bending forces from Uhing drive and assembly. Design assures that overturning moments and other forces created by payload do not work against axial thrust provided by drive. Slide is available in models SLS and L2 for heavy duty loads that mount on top of drive, while L4 model mounts...
