4XLift™ Heavy Duty Material Lift


The New Standard For Heavy Lifting

Step up to the power of a 4XLift™ from Wildeck, the leading manufacturer of safer, more reliable vertical lifts. The heavy-duty four-post 4XLift™ includes, as standard, Wildeck's patented AutoSenz® D-Series Overload Detection System (U.S. Patent No. 7,408,317) that continuously monitors motor current and stops the lift in its tracks should a jam occur. No other VRC (Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor) provides such a high level of protection for your material and the VRC itself. A Wildeck 4XLift™ can be designed to move your toughest and heaviest loads between multiple levels in your facility. The "standard" 4XLift™ effortlessly transfers material weighing up to 15,000 lbs., while the "high load" unit moves loads up to 30,000 lbs. Higher load capacity 4-post lifts are also available, if required. The 4XLift™ sets a new standard for capacity, efficiency and safety.

Safety Guarding:

The ANSI/ASME B20.1 code requires safety gates and 8 ft. high guarding on all accessible sides of the lift. 4XLift™ gates have electrical and mechanical interlocks that prevent VRC operation if the gates are not fully closed; and gates cannot be opened if the carriage is not at the designated level.

Optional Safety Features:

  • CargoLok™ Carriage Gate — securely encloses large rolling loads
  • Audible Alarm System — sounds if CargoLok carriage gate is left open or not properly latched
  • SafeLock™ system locks carriage at upper levels for added safety

Consult factory for shipment options. 4XLift™ VRCs typically ship on a flat-bed truck for side off-loading at site.
