Tail Lifts for Smooth, Safe & Easy Operations [July 2012]

ApplicationsSmooth to useUsing the tried and tested features of the company’s futura retractable range of lifts, Gandhi Automations has incorporated the advantage of a flat/horizontal platform. This is especially suited to roll cage operations, but more specifically to the typical British food industry operator. Anteo superb guide rail system eliminates any ‘racking or bounce’ of the lift frame and platform during deployment and retraction. Available in futura version, one can choose to have the facility of tilting the platform at any level, a must where the operator loads or unloads on gradients.
Safe to use The platform is available with 3 way stops/ leading edges, in column lift style to the three open sides, and the new fully automatic mechanically operated foot protector/ roll cage stop.
The guard automatically rises and falls as the tail-lift is operated. As the platform moves away from body floor level cam locks lift the guard thus preventing anyone on the platform from trapping or crushing feet or toes, at the same time holding roll cages from preventing falling as the lift descends to ground level. As the lift is raised back to floor level, the guard automatically falls level with platform and body floor allowing smooth transition of roll cages into the vehicle.
Easy to use With Anteo automatic positioning in and out.
