Vacuum Sack & Bag Lifters


Sack lifting and handling is a common problem for many industries. Vacuum sack lifters are the perfect solution when sacks have to be handled for processing and production.

Palamatic’s vacuum bag handler units perform this operation in a safe, efficient and cost effective manner. Using a Palamatic vacuum sack lifter, workers no longer suffer the backbreaking effort involved in repetitive manual bag handling.

Workers have total weightless control for effortless vacuum powered lifting. Suitable for all types of paper, plastic, hessian, burlap bag handling applications. Weights ranging from 5kg (11lb) to 110kg (242lb) can be repeatedly handled by a single worker, without fatigue!
