Lifting industrial objects up to 10 Tonnes is always going to be far too much for any human to lift without the aid of a Lifting Jacks of some kind, unless the person concerned is a ‘Super Human’ like that guy on TV who can swim under the sea for an abnormal extended period of time.
Lifting Jacks are idea for lifting heavy machinery or other bulky objects that are beyond our strength, some items may have a particularly low entry point where the gap for a Lifting Jack is minimal, maybe only a few centimetres, this job calls for a Lifting Jack designed particularly for low entry; the Toe Jack.
Industrial Toe Jack
The Toe Jack is operated in a very similar way as the bottle jack and many other designs, the toe is placed under the load, the jack is then raised by pumping hydraulic pressure in to the Jack’s cylinder, which just like a Bottle Jack, raises the toe and lifts the load. The Toe Jack can then be lowered safely by turning the pump handle which gently releases the pressure in the Toe Jack and lowers the load into place.
Toe Jacks are usually used in combination with Machine Skates or Pallet Trucks to lift and shift bulky, heavy items.
An astronomical amount of goods are shipped and transported in various types of drum. Steel drums, poly drums, stainless drums and many other types of drum are ideal for robust protection of easily damaged items like tomatoes or provide high security for chemicals and fuels. One thing they all have in common is they are heavy! Too heavy to lift!
And there it was; the light bulb moment- the drum lifter was born! But it wasn’t just that simple, there was more than just lifting a drum, there was a requirement for transportation, lifting, stacking and turning. There is pretty much a drum lifter for every application available from Lifting Equipment Store.
