Tell us about the Liftek Cagemover which was launched at the Commercial Vehicle Show in April?

Designed to transform Cage Movement, the new Liftek Cagemover range has a simple yet highly effective design with advanced safety features. Designed to prioritise worker safety while optimising efficiency, this innovative solution promises to transform cage movement by taking the strain off the operator.

By securely seating and lifting the cage from the ground, the Liftek Cagemover eliminates the physical strain on operators.  Additionally, it eases the directional steering including on uneven terrain, making this ideal in situations such as retail and supermarket deliveries as well as internal goods movement.

The Liftek Cagemover will help operators prevent workplace injuries, such as strains and sprains, reducing downtime, as well as support health and safety protocols.

It is also designed to empower employees to effortlessly move heavy loads, boosting operational efficiency and also reducing damage to cages and goods.

Ideal for tail-lift trucks, warehousing, and everyday roll-cage handling, the Liftek Cagemover range offers compatibility with both full cages and cage stacking, and can be tailored to each customer’s requirements.

With the Liftek Cagemover, businesses can elevate safety standards, minimise cage damage and reduce workplace injuries. Best of all it is operator friendly with no licence required, ensuring hassle-free implementation.
