A new smaller size of vacuum lifting attachment from Vacuworx opens up the use of the self-contained lifter to a host of new carriers, the company says. At a dry weight of 900 pounds, the MC3 with its three-ton lifting capacity can be used on compact excavators, forklifts, wheel loaders, cranes and boom trucks to lift tubular products, as well as steel plate, concrete slab and even landscape rock. Pipe can be stockpiled without spacers required, and only the suction pads must be changed to switch to pipe of another diameter. Vacuworx MC3 comes with a wireless remote control.
