March 01, 2010

NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

The PalletPal mobile leveler allows workers to lift, transport and position loads up to 3,000 pounds on pallets or skids. Used for loading or off-loading pallets, picking orders or positioning materials at workbenches or production machines, the leveler eliminates repetitive bending, lifting and carrying. Features include 52.5-inch overall height for an unobstructed view, dual-wheel steering for maneuverability, and a choice of manual or electric lift and drive. The levelers come in two configurations: fork-over for skids and pallets without cross-bottom boards, and straddle for open or closed bottom pallets and skids.
