Forklift Alternative

A&H Engineering and Manufacturing, Inc. offers the Shop Lift™, a uniquely engineered, ergonomic solution to the problem of heavy materials handling in a confined space. Shop Lift was built to fit through most standard doorways, carrying up to a 600 pound payload and delivering it safely to a machine, storage rack, pallet, loading bay or onto a truck. With a gross weight of 700 pounds and small footprint measuring only 28" wide x 72" high x 61" long, this compact yet powerful device protects workers and loads alike.

Driven by a 12V electric-powered hydraulic pump with built-in battery and charger, Shop Lift features standard 18" long sturdy steel forks with 9" load center, adjustable from 8"-18" wide and with tilting to 15º, capable of elevating a load up to 51" off the floor, with a reachin capacity of 28" forward extension. Every type of load can be transported safely and easily by one operator using the onboard pendant control.

Shop Lift operates on the principal of counterbalance, so every load up to 600 pounds is safe and secure. The hydraulics are rated to 1,200 pounds and the heavy-duty steel structure remains rigid, while riding quietly on molded polyurethane or cast steel 8" diameter wheels with foot-engaged floor lock. With a tight turning circle only 67", the Shop Lift is highly maneuverable and remains impervious to uneven surfaces on the plant, warehouse or shop floor. Custom models can be built on request.
