PRONOMIC: Expand & Turn

The Pronomic Expand & Turn is a lifting attachment used with the Lift & Drive P model to lift reels and rolls from the core.

Video Clip

The Pronomic Expand & Turn is an ergonomic lifting attachment which is used with the Lift & Drive P model to lift reels and rolls of up to 100kg from within the core. The expander is fitted with rubber grips for maximum hold with added supporters to reduce the impact on the roll itself.

Once loaded, the roll can be positioned vertically and horizontally to get it into position before releasing. The roll can only be loosened with both hands to prevent accidental release. Small rollers are fitted on the expander to facilitate the unloading of heavy rolls. Using a Pronomic Expand & Turn only requires one operator and significantly reduces the risk of manual handling lifting strains and injuries.
