The PalletPal Roll-In Level Loader from Southworth, Portland, Maine, is a manual palletizer that is said to make loading and unloading full pallets easier than ever. Thanks to its unique low-profile, open-ended platform, the Roll-In allows the forks of an ordinary hand pallet truck to literally roll into it, in between the platform’s outer beams and a center support beam, while the pallet ends up on top of the scissor-lift platform. This innovative design, which accommodates loads on any open-bottom pallet or skid, ensures that the load is evenly placed when the hand truck is lowered and rolled away.
The PalletPal Roll-In Level Loader reduces costs and raises productivity. Because workers can feed and offload it with a hand pallet truck, they don’t waste time waiting for a forklift and trained operator to assist them. A powered foot switch allows smooth, hands-free adjustment of the platform to the most comfortable height, as boxes are added or removed, reducing worker fatigue and injuries.
The platform can be accessed from all four sides with no bending and minimal reach-over. A full-perimeter, auto-stop toe guard provides an added measure of safety.
