Handy, Division of Janco Industries, Inc., has redesigned a pair of its lift tables in an effort to simplify.
The redesigned lifts are the Standard 1200 Air Lift and the S.A.M. 1200 Air Lift. Both lifts have been revolutionized with a maintenance-free air bellows that replaces the air cylinder. In addition, the redesigned lifts also have improved safety features. The new lift design will not only simplify the way that service departments perform maintenance, but it will also simplify the way that Handy produces these lifts for its customers.
The redesigned Standard and S.A.M. lifts have an automatic ratcheting safety mechanism with dual springs that creates a positive lock as the lift is raised. The safety mechanism is easily flipped back to lower the lift, and automatically resets once the lift reaches the bottom. With the automatic reset, there is no more worrying about the operator having to remember to set the safety bar.
The capacity on both the Standard and S.A.M. has been boosted from 1,000 pounds to 1,200 pounds, and the maximum lifting height has been raised on both lifts. The Standard 1200 Air Lift features a tabletop work surface of 80 inches by 24 inches, a maximum height of 39 inches, and a minimum height of 8 inches. The S.A.M. 1200 Air Lift features an 84-inch by 24-inch work surface with a maximum height of 39 inches, and a minimum height of 8 inches. The S.A.M. also features the same rear drop-out panel found on the original S.A.M. lift. Both lifts are built tough with domestic steel and feature a durable powder-coat finish.
The Standard 1000 and S.A.M. 1000 Air Lifts will continue to be manufactured for a limited time. Handy’s core purpose is simplify: mastering efficient solutions from paper to paint, and the team at Handy is confident that these redesigned lifts will live out that purpose.
