V-Lift Hydraulic Material Lift

Jan. 14, 2010

V-Lift is a hydraulically operated, cantilever material lift that may quickly rise to the head of the pack.


V-Lift features guide columns constructed of 6-in. wide-flange structural steel and a state-of-the-art hydraulic ram with large 2-1/2 in. diameter dual pistons that deliver a smoother, more positive lifting motion than competitive designs.
The V-Lift’s robust single-cylinder hydraulic system prevents twisting during operation and eliminates all moving hoses, cables, and chains.


The standard carriage dimension is 6 x 6 ft. with a lifting capacity of up to 3,000 lb. Material can be safely loaded or unloaded in a “C,” “Z,” or 90-deg. pattern allowing for maximum installation flexibility. Models are offered for servicing heights up to 14 ft. Safety interlocks prevent the VRC from moving unless the gates are fully closed and the gates are designed to open only when the carriage is at a designated level. Additional safety features include mechanical stops that ensure positive leveling with the upper deck; redundant overload protection that prevents the carriage from lifting if loaded to more than 120% of its rated capacity; and velocity fuses that safely control VRC descent.
