LTI Introduces New System For M o v i n g Ship Sections —Literature A v a i l a b le
LTI America Corp. of Riverdale, N.J., recently introduced a unique range of forklift truck-hauled semi-trailers.
These hydraulically operated, easily towed, self-loading and unloading trailers with capacities from 10 to 300 tons stretch the load-moving capacity of standard forklift trucks up to 10 times their normal design limits. A brochure illustrating a variety of applications has been published by LTI. The trailer — easily hooked up to the forklift — is backed in under the load. The trailer platform is then raised hydraulically using the forklift's hydraulic system. At the maximum height, the lifting cylinders are completely relieved through a system of linkage arms, and the forklift is ready to transport the load to the desired location. The brochure shows how the movement of heavy loads, typical in the steel fabricating, steel warehousing, heavy metals, offshore oil, and shipbuilding industries, can easily and economically be accomplished by existing personnel and equipment without assistance of expensive mobile cranes and lowloaders.
