RICO high-lift straddle rider transports 80″ diameter aluminum rolls and lifts them 88″ off the GROUND
Industry Showcased: Steel & Stamping
Capacity 50,000 LBS
This vehicle provided a solution for moving large coils of aluminum by core lifting them and transporting throughout the manufacturing stages.
This high-lift straddle rider has a capacity of 50,000 lbs at a 38” load center. It is designed to core lift 80” diameter aluminum rolls 88” off the floor.
The truck utilizes a large, single, planetary drive which allows for extremely tight turns despite the large size of the frame. The operator is nested in an elevated platform which is offset to the right side of the truck. This allows for superb visibility even when the large diameter roll is in tow.
The load wheel housings are designed to articulate allowing operation on uneven floor surfaces providing greater surface to floor contact for safe operation.
Safety features include a high-strength overhead guard, strobe lights, travel alarm, and an emergency power disconnect.
Maintenance enhancements include large hinged access doors, a central lube station, and weld-on lifting rings to safely handle the chassis.
