A and H Engineering and Manufacturing, Inc. offer the Shop Lift as a uniquely engineered, ergonomic solution to the problem of heavy materials handling in a confined space.  Shop Lift is an economical yet very rugged device, built to fit through most standard doorways, carrying up to a 600 lb. payload and delivering it safely to a machine, storage rack, pallet, loading bay or onto a truck.  With a gross weight of 700 lbs. and small footprint measuring only 28” wide x 72” high x 61” long, this compact yet powerful device protects workers and loads alike.  Plus, there’s none of the odor from propane tanks and virtually none of the noise usually associated with conventional forklifts.

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 reach-in capacity of 28” forward extension.  Every type of load, including pallets, round bar stock, molds, tooling, crates, heavy workpieces, even sensitive electronic or medical equipment, 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 lbs. is safe and secure.  The hydraulics are rated to 1200 lbs. 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.

Originally designed for loading EDM (electrical discharge machine) tooling, the Shop Lift is ideal for mold shops, machine builders, tool & dieworks, foundries, all types of manufacturing, assembly and other materials handling requirements.  Plus, this device has significant advantages for distributors of everything from food to auto parts, wherever heavy loads needs to be transported in tight quarters.  “Clean” locations such as hospitals and electronics manufacturing facilities can also utilize Shop Lift in many ways.
