Rideable Material Lift

Wildeck, Inc. has introduced a product category for vertical material lifts. "The new RML product category is a major advancement over a traditional vertical reciprocating conveyor (VRC) since it allows authorized personnel to safely travel with their material between levels," said a company spokesperson.

"With Wildeck's RiderLift Type B (RML), stated Hubert Schlegel - Director of Marketing for Wildeck, "customers can now enjoy the convenience of an elevator at a fraction of the cost. The RiderLift RML is ideally suited for industrial applications and, unlike a VRC, the RiderLift has been designed to allow an authorized person to ride with their cargo to a second level and avoid having to climb stairs or rely on a co-worker to off-load material when the lift reaches its destination."

Benefits of Wildeck's new RML are:

  • Increases material handling efficiency
  • Saves time by allowing workers to travel between levels with their material
  • Improves safety, reduces fatigue and minimizes lost time accidents
  • Increases the utilization of facility capacity gained from mezzanines, rack systems and pick modules
  • Can be purchased and installed at a fraction of the cost of an elevator.

Standard car size is 6' x 6' x 80" H, and lifting capacity is 2,500 lbs., including rider. Standard top lifting height is 14' (GND + 1) and lifting speed is 20 FPM. The RiderLift material lift is available in either "C" or "Z" loading patterns and features a keyed "enable" switch inside the car to ensure use only by authorized personnel.

Service, parts and technical support is available 24/7 at 800-325-6939 to keep the RiderLift RML and any other Wildeck vertical lift operating at peak efficiency.
