Watch It In Action

How Does It Work?

The A Series comprises four sturdy lifting columns on wheeled bases, powered by single-phase electric supply. Each column has its own independent hydraulic power unit driving a mid-sized hydraulic cylinder. Using mechanical advantage, the cylinder lifts the container to full height via a simple pulley, in one single lift movement. The system is controlled by a wireless remote control and each column communicates with the other to ensure synchronous lifting.
