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.

We have an onsite engineering and design team capable of meeting your specific needs. We will consult and coordinate with you to provide the best options for your application.
