A new, below-the-hook vacuum lifter with side grip suction pads for handling appliances, fabrications, and products that cannot be picked up from the top is being introduced by Anver Corporation of Hudson, Massachusetts.
The VPF-57 Side Grip Vacuum Lifter features a 10 ft. beam with adjustable arms which are equipped with suction pads for lifting appliances and similar products from the sides. Permitting one person to handle large items, this lifter has an articulating handle with fingertip controls and spring-loaded check valves to prevent an unintentional release of the load.
Available with air-, electric- or battery-powered vacuum generators and round or rectangular suction pads, the VPF-57 Side Grip Vacuum Lifter can be fully integrated with virtually any type of hoist. Standard safety features include vacuum gauges for each side grip vacuum pad, a vacuum guard system, and an audio-visual alarm to signal loss of air.
The VPF-57 Side Grip Vacuum Lifter is priced from $4,995.00, depending upon configuration. Literature and price quotations are available upon request.
