Presto Lifts has expanded its LiftStik line of lifter transporters with its introduction of the Model PLS53-150, which is designed for stockrooms, assembly areas, laboratories, offices, retail stores, food manufacturing and pharmaceutical facilities.
The LiftStik’s mast-style configuration places the platform and load directly over the four wheels to provide maximum stability. Using the fingertip control switch, operators can position loads at any height from 4.5” up to 53”. Lift controls are mounted on the push/steer handle and can be accessed when transporting loads. Lifting speed is a fast 4.75 inches per second. The lift mechanism consists of a steel reinforced cam belt. There are no hydraulics, so there is no chance for messy fluid leaks.
Two platform options are available: wood laminate which measures 17.75” x 15.5” or HDPE plastic which measures 19.5” x 19.5”. The lifting capacity is 150 pounds at a 15.75” load center, regardless of the platform specified.
Power to the lift mechanism is supplied by a 24 volt 7.2 Ah battery. A 115 volt external charger is included.
Front and rear swivel casters roll on any surface. Rear wheels feature a foot actuated floor lock to prevent the unit from moving as items are loaded and unloaded, or when used as a work positioner
