Weighing only 223kg it is capable of lifting 500kg to a height of 7m in dynamic mode and a massive 1200kg if used in structural mode. Structural mode is when the lifter is cranked up to the desired height without anything except a manual/electric hoist attached to the forks and then the load is elevated by the hoist.
The K-57 is comprised of 5 aluminium profile sections with integrated ‘KAT’ Kuzar Automatic Triggers for greater security, eye bolts are also included on each section so that the lift can be secured at any height. The steel base is mounted on 4 swivel castors and 2 rear castors together with a central wheel are included as standard so that the lifter can be transported either vertically or horizontally.
A special cable guide has been designed for smoother cable movement on the winch drum with the whole tower being designed and certified in accordance with the new DGUV 17 directive.
