Lift and Tilt Table Lowers to Floor Level for Hand Pallet-Truck Accessibility

April 4, 2024

southworth-ZLS-T-lift-tilt-tableAn extension of its popular ZLS line of floor-height lifts, the new ZLS-T lift from Southworth, Portland, ME, is a combination lifter and tilter designed for accessing items stored in containers, totes or gaylords. Its unique pan-style platform sits essentially flush with the floor when lowered, allowing operators to load and unload the lift using hand trucks.

The ZLS-T combination lifter-tilter (50 by 38-in. platform, with 2000- or 4000-lb. load capacity) proves ideal, company officials note, for use in facilities without forklifts or stackers or in areas where forklifts are prohibited. Independent control of lift and tilt allows operators to precisely position loads at the most convenient height and angle for easy access without bending, reaching or stretching. As the level of items in the container change, the operator adjusts the height, angle or both to maintain optimal ergonomic positioning.

The ZLS-T tilts loads to 30 in. while at any height from floor level to 33.5 in., making it ideal for use with tall- or short-sided containers and drop-gate containers. The operator controls lift and tilt position from either a hand pendant or foot-control switch. Optional safety and convenience options include bellows accordion skirting, photo-eye toe protection, portability chains, three-phase power units, custom platform sizes and corrosion-resistant finishes.
