Parallel Linkage Lifters

Parallel Linkage Lifters are a very common type of lifting equipment with their own distinct features. The mechanism is simple 4-bar linkage which has a natural and beneficial tendency to close on the load during a lift. The load is generally not supported by friction alone, but by a foot extension on each leg for engaging the underside of the load. Parallel Linkage mechanisms are normally extended to the open position through a gear drive powered either manually or by a heavy-duty electric motor.

Bradley Lifting uses high strength alloy steel in the legs, linkages, connecting pins of the Parallel Linkage Lifter and in any wear or damage prone areas.

Parallel Linkage Coil Lifters

Parallel Linkage Coil Lifter >

Parallel Linkage Lifters are commonly used for coil handling (coil axis horizontal). The linkage mechanism is good for narrow aisles in coil storage areas, but does require additional headroom to operate when compared to a Telescoping Drive Lifter.
Parallel Linkage Tray & Sheet Lifters

Parallel Linkage Sheet & Tray Lifters >

Parallel Linkage Lifters are frequently used for sheet or tray lifting. The parallel linkage design is good for narrow aisles, but does require some additional headroom to operate when compared to a Telescoping Drive Multi-Leg Lifter.
