Especially designed to increase throughput, the Winch Lift stand allows for Mixer Direct clamp mount mixers to be moved vertically out of a tank or drum to position the next batch into place. The Winch Lift includes a bidirectional brake for safe lowering and raising the mixer. A seven and a half degree pitch on the clamp surface optimizes the mixers entry angle to assist in self baffling a non-baffled tank or drum. All non-wear surfaces are powder coated to ensure longevity and corrosion resistance. The stationary stand must be anchored for correct operation.
