Presto ECOA Lifts, Norton, Mass., launched PT Series Container Tilters, designed to tilt containers up to 85 degrees to allow workers to access contents without bending into the container.

These portable, battery-powered container tilters go anywhere, making them ideal for applications that require sharing between multiple users or work cells, or where workers need to pick up and return containers to and from staging areas.

They work with a variety of containers, including wire baskets, plastic totes and gaylords. These tilters are powered by a 12V maintenance-free, leak-proof battery with internal charger. Optional 115V AC or air motors are available. Tilt is controlled by a pushbutton pendant that allows operators to tilt the load to any angle between 0-85 degrees. The push handle lowers when not in use, further improving access to container contents. A foot-operated floor lock keeps the tilter securely in position, as items are being accessed.

The non-straddle (PT Series) units work with most standard containers while the Straddle (PTS Series) unit is used with containers that have reinforcing leg bars. Both configurations are equipped with 40-inch-long forks, and boast 2,000- or 4,000-pound capacities.
