Southworth Products Corp. has redesigned its PalletPal Level Loader to make it even more ergonomic. A new, smaller base makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer, and easier because it lets the user step closer to the unit's platform for the best access to palletized loads.
The PalletPal virtually eliminates the productivity-robbing, injury-producing bending, lifting, reaching, and stretching common to pallet-loading applications, the manufacturer says. Heavy-duty springs automatically lower or raise a pallet as weight is added or removed, maintaining the top layer of stacked containers at a convenient height. The unit's turntable ring (or optional turntable platform) at the top of the PalletPal allows the user to spin the load so he or she can stand in the same spot throughout the loading or unloading process. The economical unit requires no power and is virtually maintenance-free. Fork pockets at the base allow for easy relocation.
The PalletPal can accommodate loads weighing from 400 to 4,500 pounds, depending on which of five spring packages the customer chooses. If needs change, the unit can be adapted easily in the field by changing its spring combination.
