A new hydraulic load leveler for use in the manual loading and unloading of pallets has been introduced by Presto Lifts Inc. (Attleboro, MA). The P4 can improve worker productivity and reduces fatigue, according to the company. Its platform lowers to floor height so pallets can be placed and removed using a hand pallet truck. When unloading pallets, the platform starts at its lowest height and is progressively raised so that each succeeding tier of goods can be removed at the same height. The P4 can be accessed from all four sides and units are equipped with a photoelectric toe guard to stop downward travel if the beam is interrupted. The units have capacities up to 4000 pounds, making them suitable for most pallet loads that can be moved with hand equipment.
