Roll Lifter, 17970-04

The 17970 Series Pneumatic Expand-O-Turn is designed to lift and turn rolls by their cores and is perfect for palletizing, transporting and loading rolls. The roll handling unit is operated with the use of the pushbuttons making it efficient and easy to use. For paper and film rolls that have unique core sizes, the Expand-O-Turn uses a DC powered compressor for core expansion. Rolls of varying dimensions can then be safely handled.


Additional features of this roll handling unit include: a standard manual rotate with a hand crank or rotating handle and an electric rotate which is optional and allows for the operator to lift heavy rolls.
