Lumber Handling Equipment - 15 Ton Tilt Hoist
The Mellott 15 ton Tilt Hoists are designed to unstack stickered packages of lumber. The standard machine is designed for 72" high x 96" wide x 16' long packages. Shorter columns and forks are available for smaller packages.
Very heavy construction and a simple design are used throughout the Tilt Hoists in order to keep maintenance and down time to a minimum.
Base frame constructed in two pieces so that the forks can be assembled on the tilt hoist for shipping
The steel columns are welded to a pivot tube at the bottom and a 3" square tube at the top to tie all the columns together for extra strength
Lift cylinder is a 3000 psi rated cushioned hydraulic cylinder with (2) heavy leaf chains
Heavy leaf chain used in a "z" arrangement for load leveling
Tilt cylinders are 3000 psi rated cushioned hydraulic cylinders
Chain attachments use standard connecting links
Cylinder arms are thick flame cut arms that completely wrap the pivot tube
Steel rollers used in all of the forks in order to distribute the load to all of the columns
Optional conveyors include: Infeed decks, outfeed conveyors, stick removal conveyors and stick stacking systems. Combined, these conveyors make a reliable, heavy duty tilt hoist system.
