By improving efficiency and safety for direct store deliveries and product distribution companies, Magline continues to take a leadership role in the material handling industry. The Magliner CooLift Delivery System is maneuverable and has a high capacity hydraulic lifting truck with integrated plastic “half” pallets for improved safety and efficiency.
The CooLift truck features a hydraulic lifting system powered by a 24-volt rechargeable battery. Manufactured out of lightweight aluminum, and featuring a 6-wheel design with rear swivel non-marking wheels, this truck provides lightweight 360-degree maneuverability in store aisles. Dual hydraulic brakes on the center wheels ensure driver control of deliveries in a variety of store environments, and unlike traditional jacks, the system is equipped with a manual override.
The CooLift pallets are constructed out of High Density Polyethylene and are available in three sizes to optimize product builds and trailer space. Available in lengths of 43”/1,200 lb., 48”/1,350 lb., and 53”/1,500 lb., these stackable pallets have a height of 13.5”, eliminating the need for drivers to bend down to the floor and decreasing related back injuries. Like all Magline products, the CooLift Delivery System comes standard with a one-year warranty from the date of purchase.
