Increase Efficiency and Improve Safety with the Wood's Powr-Grip Premium MRT4 Vacuum Lifter

The Premium MRT4 vacuum lifter now comes equipped with a Premium Dual Vacuum System (DVS). This DVS features two completely independent vacuum circuits, allowing the lifter to maintain the vacuum level for one circuit even if an unexpected vacuum loss occurs in the other one. It is designed to reduce the risk of falling loads, which could result from breakage or other accidents that compromise one area of the vacuum system. New digital vacuum switches enable the vacuum pump and vacuum level warning devices to operate independently of each other, eliminating annoying alarm distraction during routine cycling of the vacuum pump. Push-button controls are positioned at the operator's fingertips for convenience, ease of operation, stability and enhanced control.
