MerchLift Hoist Based Roll Handling Unit

The Mechlift is built upon telescoping aluminum profiles which are anodized, thus allowing for it to be practically maintenance free. The Electric Mechlift is an ergonomically designed moment absorbing lifter up to 1,000 Nm that has a step-less frequency steered lifting speed that is controlled via a joystick. Common applications for the electric Mechlift are the lifting and handling of materials in rolls or sheets, doors, and general auto parts.


This roll handling unit was made to be fitted with standard or customized tools and with many standard accessories such as a rotating unit, different types of tool fittings, and bracket units. This makes the Merchlift easily adaptable to various applications for lifting and handling.
