Southworth Products has introduced a new level loader for use in the manual loading and unloading of pallets. The Roll-On with turntable improves worker productivity and reduces fatigue. This ergonomic device features a platform that lowers to floor height so that pallets can be placed or removed using a hand pallet truck. The turntable allows users to rotate loads so that they're always loading or unloading from the nearest side. In loading operations, a pallet is first placed on the platform. The platform is then raised hydraulically to its full up position. As goods are placed onto the pallet, the platform lowers so that each succeeding tier of products can be loaded at the same height. Unloading works in reverse—the platform starts at its lowest point and raises as each layer of product is removed. The unit, which is accessible from all four sides with a minimum of stretching or reaching, features a 2,500 pound capacity and is equipped with a photoelectric toe guard to stop downward travel if the beam is interrupted.
