The platform attachment with rollers has been developed in order to allow loads to be lifted and lowered, and then removed from the lifting attachment itself as smoothly as possible. This lifting solution involved handling 20 litre barrels. The barrels were loaded onto the roller attachment, and then removed from the lifter to the storage racking using the attachment’s sliding roller mechanism.
