The LiftStik PLS67-285 from Presto ECOA Lifts is rated for a 285-pound lifting capacity.

The new LiftStik PLS67-285 from Presto ECOA Lifts is a four-wheel lifter transporter made of impact-resistant aluminum.

Compact, maneuverable and rated for a 285-pound lifting capacity, it is suitable for lifting and transporting items in a range of industrial, retail, laboratory, food processing, pharmaceutical and office environments. Loads are evenly distributed over four oversized casters that roll easily over thresholds and uneven floors.

The adjustable width base can be set as narrow as 20 inches for use in tight quarters or as wide as 28 inches to provide extra stability for wider loads. A foot actuated rear caster lock keeps the unit from moving during loading, unloading or when used as a variable height work surface.

The narrow mast design allows workers to have a clear view during transport.

The standard platform is 19.5 inches square made from UMHW polyethylene. Wood laminate or stainless-steel platforms are also available.

An ergonomic contoured “sponge grip” handle accommodates operators of different heights. Lifting and lowering controls are  placed within reach of the push handle and can be operated during transport. A corded lifting remote is also available.

Lifting speed is 4.75 inches per second. The battery-powered lift mechanism consists of a steel reinforced cam belt. Because the lift is mechanical and not hydraulic, there is zero platform drift and no possibility of process contamination due to fluid leaks.

A battery-charge status indicator is mounted near the push handle in direct operator view. Battery charging is done via an onboard 110V charger.

In addition to the standard lifting platform, the LiftStik can be equipped with options including reel rotators, mandrels, v-cradles, forks, an articulating boom with lifting hook and more. Stainless-steel construction is also available for sanitary, food processing or washdown applications.
