Material positioner attachment for the E-Z Up
By Maria Hadlow07 June 2011
US Lift and material handling manufacturer AEUP (Absolute E-Z Up) has launched the company's first lift attachment - the AEUP Rocker. It has been designed by experts in the installation of ceiling and acoustic tiles and drywall for simplifying the positioning of materials.
The Rocker eliminates the need for manual drywall lifts and makes the job safer and easier. It can reduce a twoperson project to one safely completed by oneperson, saving manpower and reducing costs.
The attachment comprises a lightweight, electric-powered track and a detachable, adjustable cradle that holds and lifts materials. Activated directly from the platform with the push of a button, materials travel up the track and are held in the proper overhead location, which leaves the worker free to secure them to the joist(s).
The cradle can be adjusted to hold panels up to 3.65m (12 ft) and can lift up to 40kg (89 lbs). The attachment can be adjusted to three different positions to allow for varied workman height. Total weight of the complete attachment is 45kg (99.2 lbs).
The attachment can be assembled without tools quickly and simply, and the Rocker can be removed with easily for convenient storage. Currently, the Rocker is only certified for use on the CAWP9.6 and the IAWP 7.3 E-Z Up models.
