The Danish manufacturer of material handling equipment, Logitrans A/S, now introduces a Reel Rotator! The perfect choice when transporting, lifting and rotating heavy reels!

“It is hard, uncomfortable and often impossible to lift and rotate reels without help – and many enquiries have now led us to develop the Reel Rotator. The Reel Rotator makes it possible to solve every imaginable reel handling situation”, says Gitte Kirkegaard Berg, CEO at Logitrans.

The new Reel Rotator from Logitrans is compact, very manoeuvrable and ensures the user ergonomically correct working conditions. The reels are fixed with gripping arms, having rubber-covered gripping pads to achieve the largest friction and to ensure a gentle grip. The Reel Rotator manages soft as well as smooth and hard reels.

“When handling heavy reels, dangerous situations might occur! We have therefore put high focus on safety, when developing the Reel Rotator”, says Gitte Kirkegaard Berg. “None of the models can open the gripping arms by mistake, and the reels can only be released, when placed on floor or pallet. On models with electric rotation, it is only possible to rotate at lifting heights, at which the gripping arms cannot touch floor or legs”.

“The Reel Rotator is a welcome help for everybody who needs to lift, carry and rotate heavy reels. It protects back, shoulders and arms and makes it possible to avoid inconvenient lifting when handling heavy reels”, Gitte Kirkegaard Berg ends the interview.
