The ERGO-TILT positions wire baskets, totes, hampers, and other containers to the most comfortable height for loading or unloading parts. Because lift and tilt are independently controlled, it minimizes bending and stretching, reducing fatigue and back injuries as well as increasing productivity. As the level of parts in the container changes, the operator smoothly adjusts the tilt angle up to 85 [degrees]. Height adjustment is also smooth, with vertical travel up to 11.25".
