Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/21/2016 -- Magline LiftPlus was awarded Attendees' Choice Award at the National Ergonomics Conference and ErgoExpo at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last week. ErgoExpo attendees voted for the new product offering the best opportunity to increase productivity and profitability, while improving workplace health and safety. Magline LiftPlus was one of four winners recognized from 29 total products.
The LiftPlus is a combination stacker, transporter, and positioner that uses an electric screw drive system for smooth, quiet lifting of up to 350 pounds. The added versatility over standard hand trucks is significant, according to Stewart Burton, general manager of applied research and development at Magline, "The LiftPlus has four wheels, so you don't have to worry about tipping it back. It has 10-inch disc brakes, so if you're unloading, it won't scoot away from you. It lifts, so once you've transported materials where they need to go, you can lift it into place for offloading and to load."
The LiftPlus also offers a wide array of attachments to fulfill many common functions on the job floor, from a workbench with a built-in vise to an arbor for rolled products, and a V-tray for cylindrical products. Multiple attachments can turn the LiftPlus into a mobile workstation.
In addition, the LiftPlus is highly mobile compared to a forklift—a game-changing advantage in a crowded workspace. The LiftPlus can fit through a standard 28-inch doorway and folds for easy transportation when it's not in use. Rear rollers help to ensure easy storage in tight spaces. And the LiftPlus is available immediately to anyone who needs it—there's no need to call for a licensed fork truck driver.
