Significantly decrease operator strain and fatigue with electric tip lifts from Tilt-Lock. Tilt-Lock focuses on creating safer, more efficient ways for operators to handle and maneuver rolls of material. We make our products as user-friendly as possible and go to great lengths to integrate the most advanced safety features on the market. Our electric tip lifts are also known for their reliability — some of our customers have used the same Tilt-Lock equipment for over 25 years! We offer several electric tip lift models that can accommodate roll widths from 3 to 70 inches and roll weights up to 2,000 pounds.

How does it work

Red Divider

To use our electric tip lifts, the operator inserts the spring-loaded probe of the tip lift into the core of the roll up to the flange. The probe contains four teeth on its end to hold the roll safely and firmly in place during operation. The operator then uses the handle-mounted controls to raise, lower and tilt the roll as needed. To disengage the probe, the operator uses the controls to lower the roll to the ground and presses the tooth release button.
