Redesigned Palletizer Is Even More Ergonomic

Southworth Products Corp has redesigned its PalletPal Level Loader to make it more ergonomic. A new, smaller base makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer, and easier because it lets the user step closer to the unit’s platform.

July 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Southworth Products Corp has redesigned its popular, time-tested PalletPal Level Loader to make it still more ergonomic.  A new, smaller base makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer, and easier because it lets the user step even closer to the unit’s platform, for the best access to palletized loads.

The PalletPal revolutionized manual palletizing in the United States when it was introduced more than 25 years ago.  Its use virtually eliminates the productivity-robbing, injury-producing bending, lifting, reaching, and stretching common to pallet-loading applications.

Heavy-duty springs automatically lower or raise a pallet as weight is added or removed, maintaining the top layer of stacked containers at a convenient height.  And the turntable ring (or optional turntable platform) at the top of the PalletPal allows the user to spin the load so he or she can stand in the same spot throughout the loading or unloading process.

The economical unit requires no power and is virtually maintenance-free.  Fork pockets at the base allow for easy relocation.

The PalletPal can accommodate loads from 400 to 4,500 lbs., depending on which of five spring packages is chosen by the customer (based on the anticipated weight and height of a fully loaded pallet).  If needs change, the unit can be adapted easily in the field by changing its spring combination.
