For use in shrink wrap applications, a plant-air powered, mechanical bearing turntable includes an internally mounted air motor drive assembly for automatic rotation. Actuated by a foot control, the operator stands still while the turntable rotates the load. To support the shrink wrap roll, the table may be supplied with a mast. It is equipped with fork pockets for easy movement, and lag down holes to secure it in a permanent location. Air Caster, 217-877-1237, www.aircaster.com/turntables.
