Oct. 11, 2011 – The MRTALPR4 series vacuum lifters from Wood's Powr-Grip meet the
challenge of installing insulated metal panels, architectural metal
panels, stone or other products with some surface texture. These vacuum
lifters feature flexible vacuum pads, movable pad mounts and adjustable
T-arms to accommodate a wide variety of insulated panel sizes and
contours. Optional pad frame extensions and rocker arms increase
capacity and support where needed to install longer and heavier roof
The new MRTALPR4 comes in two basic configurations. While these vacuum
lifters have essentially the same frame, features and available options,
the primary difference is the style of vacuum pad. The MRTALPR4FS625DC
comes outfitted with four oval pads to enable use on architectural
panels with regularly spaced ridges or curtain wall sections with
mullions or similar obstructions. The MRTALPR4HV11FDC sports four round
pads equipped for lifting flat materials such as low-relief metal
panels, stone and glass.
The MRTALPR4 vacuum lifters come standard with a high-flow pump and
vacuum blow-off, enabling rapid attachment and controlled, hands-free
release. The dual vacuum system helps prevent load damage and possible
injury, by maintaining vacuum in one circuit even if the other were to
experience a leak.
An impressive array of new options further adds to the utility and
versatility of the MRTALPR4 lifters. Intended for the cladding industry,
available pad frame extension arms for roof panels come with four arms,
a specialized lift shackle and four suspension straps—enabling a vacuum
lifter to install roof panels up to 60 feet long.
The MRTALPR4 lifters come standard with two T-arm pad frame extensions.
By adding the optional pad frame extension arms and optional pad frame
rocker arms, along with two additional T-arms, the lifter's load
capacity can be increased from 600 pounds to 1,100 pounds.
These options enable the vacuum lifter to handle longer, heavier roofing
panels with ease while supporting the panels to prevent damage from
flexing or bending.
An optional remote control allows an operator to control the functions of
the vacuum lifter without having to be in close proximity. The
long-lasting 18 amp-hour battery significantly extends the run time of
the vacuum lifter, eliminating the need for frequent recharging while
providing more time on the job.
