The MRTA611LDC features a highly adaptable pad frame, to accommodate a wide variety of load sizes and shapes. It also comes with a Dual Vacuum System, designed to reduce the risk of falling loads in the case of an accident. The P2 Channel Lifters are very popular in the glass industry for their higher capacity and unique capabilities when combined with a Counterbalance Lifter.  In addition to a wide variety of pad frame configurations, the MR1611LDC has sufficient capacity for lifting heavy loads, such as preassembled curtain wall sections. The MR2411LDCS has all the advantages of the MR16, as well as an enormous load capacity of 4200 lbs [1905 kg]. Featuring a Dual Vacuum System, the Panel Master (MRTALPR4FS625DC) is specifically designed to lift insulated metal panels and other cladding materials with a variety of dimensions and contours. Please consult the appropriate Spec Sheet number for more information about these vacuum lifters.

Also available for lease is the CB2DCS, a Counterbalance Lifter which allows loads to be positioned under overhangs, roof gables and similar obstructions, by extending the load away from the lift slings. It features a specialized fixed mount for use in conjunction with Powr-Grip’s P1-DC, P2-DC and MRTALP Series vacuum lifters, as well as a universal hook mount to accommodate all other kinds of vacuum lifters and end effectors. Powr-Grip’s Channel Lifters can also be inverted on the Counterbalance Lifter for reverse-angle installations, such as those in airport control towers.  With a similar function, the CB3DCS is specifically designed to pair with WPG’s MR1611LDC.  Its high capacity and remote control operation enable the positioning of oversize glass under gables, overhangs or other similar obstructions.

Due to demand, Powr-Grip lease equipment is available on a first come, first served basis. The minimum duration of any lease is one week (e.g., eight days’ use results in a charge for two weeks’ lease). Wood’s Powr-Grip must receive a lease agreement and a security deposit in order to reserve a vacuum lifter. Please contact Wood’s Powr-Grip Technical Sales for current lease rates and availability.

Customers are responsible for all shipping charges; however, Wood’s Powr-Grip prefers to make arrangements for shipping the leased equipment both to and from our facility. Because of the volume of freight we ship, often we are able to negotiate a lower shipping cost. Transit time is not included in lease costs, provided that the customer furnishes a signed bill of lading showing the date the unit was received. Contact Wood’s Powr-Grip Technical Sales to arrange return shipping.

Once the lifter is returned, we inspect it, repair it (if necessary), and reimburse the customer for the balance of the deposit. Please refer to the Lease Agreement Terms and Conditions for complete information about leasing Wood’s Powr-Grip lifters.
