Vacuum lifter for seed, feed bagsNew vacuum lifter uses suction power to effortlessly lift seed and feed bags.
It can also be used to move bags of concrete, salt, grit and any other bagged materials as well as sheet metal and other bulky materials.
Consists of a vacuum suction grabber mounted on a spring-loaded lift arm that pivots 360?. To pick up a bag, you lower the rubber-flapped lifter down over the bag and flip a lever, activating the suction. It clamps onto the back and then you effortlessly raise up on the spring-loaded lift handle and move the bag where needed.
"It's the first overhead lifting system that can handle bags and other fragile materials without damaging them," says the manufacturer, Albert Fezer.
A variety of sizes are available with various suction attachments, depending on the materials to be handled.
