Background about our pork lifts
Because ADA Enterprises prioritizes customer support and service we often have unique insights into our customers operational needs. As we began hearing specific needs from our clients regarding a mid-priced equipment offering to assist in moving dead sows from the barn, we saw an area we believed we could innovate in to provide a real solution.
Admittedly, there was some trial and error when we first introduced “Version 1.0” of our pork lift. Version 1.0 was a bit underpowered and not as robust as it needed to be to live up to the standards that we have set for ourselves, and that our customers have come to enjoy over the years. In working with our customer’s feedback we began to engineer new bearing points and increase the strength of the platform and added a heavy-duty winch so that it would be over-engineered when compared to the 500 lbs. loads it would more than likely be moving in the event that a sow died in the barn. The end result was an extremely robust, value-oriented pork lift that is capable of moving 2000 lbs.
We’re not afraid to admit that we worked with our customers closely to assess their needs and make a product that exceeds their expectations.
Benefits of using a pork lift in daily operations
The ADA Enterprises pork lift is a hand-pushed auto-crank design that is engineered to work in harmony with staff to intelligently move heavy animals without the same risk of injury as other methods – the pork lift does the heavy lifting so you and your people don’t have to.
Generally speaking, having a piece of tooling that can do this heavy lifting and requires minimal effort by staff members improves worker safety and minimizes money lost due to injury and lost time on the job. Because of the unique design, we’re able to offer this piece of equipment without breaking the budget.
Operating our Pork Lift
To operate the ADA Enterprises pork lift, use the chains that are provided to stabilize the unit and secure against movement. Having the pork lift in a stationary position makes it safer and easier as you begin to pull the animal out of the crate or pen. You will then safely wrap the cable around the head and neck area of the animal – or utilizing the shoulder if you need to secure the load better or to improve the balance of certain animals – and pull the cable until it’s snug.
Once the animal is secured into the cable system, you can begin to winch the animal out of the crate or pen. Depending on the design of your pen or the area where you are moving the dead animal from, you may need to repeat this procedure to rebalance and position the animal once in the alleyway.
