Burlap and canvas bags can be lifted using a hook tool on the hoist. This is very common in the coffee and tea manufacturing. For natural reasons, burlap and canvas bags cannot be lifted with a standard vacuum lifting solution. The twin hook tool can be combined with the ViperHoist to lift the burlap and canvas bags.


The ViperHoist is perfect for many areas of the automotive production such as the assembly of batteries, lifting tires, car seats and many more.
