Offset Clamping Jaws: Lift Roll in Core Horizontal

By take one of the clamping jaws and shortening it a bit and lengthening the other, the equipment can easily rest the roll onto a flat surface where clearance is an issue.

See the video below for an example using our Larger LRCR jaw system. Various Jaw sizes for specific applications.

Add more POWER to your roll handling w. the Roll Hauler

EasyLift All-Power Roll Haulers w. power drive

Roll-Haulers eliminate injuries associated with the manual handling of roll materials. They provide a self-powered means to grip, lift, transport and rotate rolls from pallets to converting machines or vice versa. Simply drive the compact unit to the pallet or wind machine, engage the soft rubber lined jaws around any poly or paper rolled material and give it a little lift. Transport the unit to desired area where you can rotate or manipulate the roll into any suitable position.

Thanks to Roll Hauler's counterweight the unit has the ability to place rolls on/off pallets and machinery where REACH is required. With the standard unit sitting at only 27" wide and 77.25" tall the unit is ideal for working around tight aisle-applications ways and through doorways.

Several options are available making it an ideal for just about any application:
  • Scale system so you can check weigh your vendors or ship out by weight.
  • Offset jaw system for picking rolls up when laying core horizontal on the floor
  • FDA approved coatings for food grade applications.
  • Battery Roll Out Stations for 3 shift operations
  • Various jaw sizes and inserts for handling various size rolls.
  • Elimination of Rotation
  • Fixed platforms to cradle the rolls.
  • Side Shifters
  • Increased lift heights up to 120" plus.
  • Gel Cell Batteries | Maintenance Free
  • Roll Posts
  • and many more..
View the video below for more detailed information / demonstrations on the Roll Hauler models. Please contact us with any questions. Push around models also available.

Use your Roll Hauler in 3 shift operations

With the Roll Hauler battery roll out station you can use your Roll Hauler or Roll Hauler in 3 shift operations.

The standard battery life of the Hauler is 16 hours of continuous use which allows that third shift time for re-charging. For those around the clock packaging operations where there in no downtime for the unit to charge, we offer a battery roll-out station.

By adding conveyor to the unit an operator can easily remove the battery from the unit and roll a FRESH battery back into position while the other battery is recharging.

Great addition to a great unit.
