Wildeck Introduces Four New Rideable Material Lifts

 

Demand for increased weight capacity and the need for larger payloads results in four new lift models that increase material handling efficiency.

Waukesha, WI – April 2018, Wildeck, Inc. – In response to customer demand for increased weight capacity and the need to move larger loads, Wildeck, Inc. has introduced (4) new rideable material lifts (RML). The new “RML” product category is a major advancement over a traditional “VRC” (Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor) since it allows authorized personnel to safely travel with materials instead of climbing stairs to catch up with the load. Wildeck is announcing its expanded “RiderLift™ Family” of hydraulically-operated rideable material lifts at Wildeck’s Booth # B4747a at the Modex 2018 Show, April 9-12, at the GWCC (Georgia World Congress Center) in Atlanta, GA.

  • 2,500 lbs. Lifting Capacity (Class C3 for Heavy Load Concentrations)
  • 6 ft. x 6 ft. Car Size
  • 14 ft. travel (Ground plus One Level)

“Our expanded family of Type B Rideable Material Lifts (RML) allows customers to choose the exact lift configuration that meets their requirements,” stated Hubert Schlegel – Director of Marketing for Wildeck. “RiderLift™ RML units are ideally suited for a wide range of industrial and commercial applications and, unlike a VRC (vertical reciprocating conveyor), RiderLifts™ have been designed to allow an operator to travel with material between levels. All RiderLift™ models comply with the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 code for Elevators and Escalators and must be installed and serviced by a licensed Elevator Contractor.”

 

RiderLift Benefits:

►    Increased material handling efficiency

►    Saves time by allowing workers to travel between levels with their material

►    Improves safety and reduces operator fatigue

►    Increases the utilization of facility capacity gained from mezzanines, rack systems, and pick modules

►    Can be purchased and installed at a fraction of the cost of a freight elevator

 

“With four new RiderLift™ configurations, Wildeck has placed the power of choice in the customers hands. Whether they need to move pallets of finished goods, fixtures, furniture, heavy carts, machinery, or any large or bulky material; there’s a RiderLift™ that will get the job done.”

RiderLift™ material lifts meet all applicable code and safety requirements and are available in either “C” or “Z” loading patterns. They feature a keyed “enable” switch inside the car to ensure use only by authorized personnel. Although they are not a public elevator, a licensed Elevator Contractor must install and service the lift and provide the end user with ongoing State-approved safety inspections and lift Certification, as required by the A17.1 code.

Wildeck’s service, parts, and technical support Help-Line is available 24-7 at 800-325-6939 to keep the RiderLift™ RML and any other Wildeck® vertical lift operating at peak efficiency. According to Todd Canham, Product Manager, Lift Products, “Our expanded family of RiderLift™ rideable material lifts are part of Wildeck’s continuing commitment to helping our customers’ projects run smoothly while making their operations safer, more efficient, and more profitable.”
