This coil upender has a powered V-saddle and a clearance slot for the c-hook which places the steel coils on to the V-saddle.

Hydraulic Lifting Equipment

Bushman Equipment, Inc. designs and builds several types of hydraulic upenders with fully integrated, heavy-duty hydraulics for precise positioning. Bushman Equipment, Inc. thoroughly tests each hydraulic upender at our factory.

The hydraulic upender’s power unit provides an ideal power source for secondary functions such as shifting saddles and pallet centering.

The lower platform of a hydraulic upender facilitates loading and unloading so that they can accommodate a variety of equipment for secondary handling functions including:

  • Roll discharge tilt platforms.
  • Shifting saddles.
  • Pallet-centering systems.
  • Load and unload conveyors.

Roll Upender

Bushman roll upenders are designed for changing rolls and coils from one orientation to the other. A roll upender is used to safely reposition large and odd shaped objects.

Pallet Upender

Our pallet upenders automate your roll stacking and palletizing operations and at the same time reduce manhandling injuries

Upender Design

  • Rugged, heavy-duty welded steel plate, channel and tube construction go into each Bushman Equipment, Inc. hydraulic upender.
  • High-quality double-acting tilt cylinders rotate the platforms. Loads rotate around heavy-duty pivot bearings, complete with lubrication points.
  • Electrical limit switches halt rotation at each end of the pivot cycle.

Options for Flexibility

  • Hydraulic upender platforms can handle a wide variety of load configurations, including long loads such as paper rolls, or other loads whose length is significantly greater than its width or diameter.
  • Many industrial applications require tilting which is an available option for hydraulic upenders.
  • Various types of conveyor decks are available to accommodate specific loads.
  • Traveling upenders can be equipped with wheels for rail travel or mobile use.
  • Bushman Equipment, Inc. upenders can be modified to work in most systems with automatic operation.
  • One platform on a hydraulic upender may be significantly smaller than the other, making these upenders suitable for loads that are larger in one dimension.
  • These coil upenders can also handle more than one coil.

Safety Features

  • Factory-set pressure relief values.
  • Maintenance lockout pins.
  • Guarding and warning labels comply with industry standards.
