Armstrong Magnetic Plate Lifter PL-1320A
1320 lbs Max. Lift Capacity, 3,960 lbs Breakaway Force

Magnetic Plate Lifter PL-1320A



Armstrong LiftMag™ PL-A permanent magnetic plate lifter is a great improvement from our previous PL lifters designed and made for holding, carrying and releasing flat ferrous parts without any electrical power supply. They attract ferrous parts by lowering or raising their Release Handles to touch or keep away from load surfaces. The Release Handle was uniquely designed to achieve easy "One-Hand" operation.  Armstrong LiftMag™ has Limited 1-year Warranty for PL-A series lifting magnets.
