MC SERIES VACUUM LIFTING SYSTEMS are lightweight and designed for use with compact host vehicles, suited for lower weight specifications and smaller material sizes. They are ideal for utility and in-plant applications and have lift capacities ranging from 6,600 to 11,000 lb (3 to 5 tonnes). The MC 3 operates using a self-contained gas engine. The MC 5 has the same compact profile with a higher capacity diesel engine. The MC 5H is powered by the hydraulic system of the host machine:

  • Wireless remote operation is safer than hooks, slings or chains
  • 360Β° rotation provides precise placement of materials
  • Will not damage delicate materials and bonded coatings
  • Vacuum technology eliminates need for costly cribbing or spacers for pipe and plate
  • Quick-couplers are available for attachment versatility

*The MC Series is designed to handle lighter weights and shorter lengths of material. The MC Series is limited in steel pipe applications to a maximum of 40 feet in length. For steel pipe in excess of 40 feet, please reference the Vacuworx RC Series. In steel pipe applications of 40 feet or less, MC Series lifters are very effective. The MC Series can safely lift larger diameters than specified above in shorter lengths and/or lighter materials. Contact the Vacuworx Sales Department for assistance in selecting the proper Vacuworx Lifting System for your application.
