A new option that converts a fork truck into a vacuum powered lifter for handling all types of sheet, plate, and large panels from the top surface is being introduced by Anver Corporation of Hudson, Massachusetts.
The Anver Fork Lift Sleeve Option features two sleeves which accept standard 26” forks and mount onto the beam of an Anver VPF-57 Series 12 VDC powered vacuum lifter. Equipped with a pendant control that can be mounted inside the fork truck cab, this vacuum lifter has a 2,200 lb. capacity and can be equipped with a wide assortment of interchangeable pad attachments.
Available with parking stands for easy attach and release, the Anver VPF-57 Series 12 VDC powered vacuum lifter can also be used with a crane hook for boom attachment. Featuring an all-welded frame, vacuum check valve, reser-voir, and gauges, the VPF-57 pulls a 24”Hg vacuum on smooth, non-porous surfaces and the fork sleeves tighten by hand knobs and include safety chains.
Anver VPF-57 Series DC powered vacuum lifter is priced at $2,995.00 and the Fork Sleeves are $230.00 a pair. Literature is available upon request.
