Iowa Mold Tooling has added two new TireHand tire-manipulator models to its product range, both available in either loader- or forklift-truck-mounted configurations, as are all IMT TireHand models. New models are the TH20K167 and the TH36K164, which have maximum capacities of 20,000 and 36,000 pounds, respectively. The new models, says IMT, fill niches in the TireHand lineup, which also includes models with maximum capacities of 5,500, 10,000, 15,000, and 25,000 pounds. Design enhancements for the lineup include standard hydraulic fallback protection, optimized pad design, increased arm length, and “minimized” arm profile.
