Southworth Products has introduced Air Cargo Lifts—high-capacity, heavy-duty scissor lifts designed to transfer loads to and from transport vehicles to cargo terminals and off-site warehouse and distribution center facilities.
The standard lift platform is equipped with inverted casters placed in a uniform grid pattern that allow cargo containers and unit load devices (ULDs) to be maneuvered or moved across the deck in any direction. A platform deck without the caster array can also be provided.
The platform deck is coated with a durable grit slip-resistant finish to provide workers with sure footing as loads are moved across it. A bolt-on side platform allows workers to stand on the side of the caster deck and can be mounted to either the left or right side.
Standard lifts have a load capacity of 15,000 lbs. with higher capacities available based on application requirements. Standard platform sizes are 10’ x 13’ or 13’ x 13’; custom sizes also available. Maximum raised height is 68” to accommodate any dock height. Power is provided by a 7.5 HP 460/3/60 externally mounted power unit. Control voltage is 115/1/60.
Air Cargo Lifts can be equipped with options including truck bumpers, bellows skirting, oil heaters for cold weather climates, redundant power units, and manual lowering valves.
