Description

What is it?

The Rolled Goods Manipulator (RGM), Patent Pending, is a forklift assistance tool capable of handling, lifting, and manipulating heavy rolled materials such as commercial sheet vinyl. The RGM can lift and place sheet rolled products from a horizontal to a vertical position and vice-versa. With a 750 & 900 lb capacity, this device eliminates the risk of injury to an employee who would otherwise lift the material up by hand. It is also much more efficient than standard carpet or vinyl poles. Originally designed for the flooring industry, this vinyl pole forklift attachment tool can be used in a variety of other industries such as paper, roofing, electrical, and any industry that moves and stores heavy rolled items.

Solution to common problems

Storing and transporting heavy rolled items such as a commercial sheet vinyl can be very difficult due to weight and size. The rolled item is usually moved around the warehouse manually with dollies or by a carpet pole which can only move the item while in a horizontal position. Both methods still require manual lifting which raises safety issues with employees. This process is not efficient or a cost effective way to move such items. ​With the RGM, this entire process can be completed with just one employee and no risk of injury!

How it works

The Rolled Goods Manipulator (RGM) is a forklift attachment used for storing and transporting rolled materials such as commercial sheet vinyl. The device includes a mounting sleeve configured to slide over the forklift forks. An elongated rod extends parallel from the mounting sleeve and can be positioned adjacent to the forks. The rod includes a locking mechanism used to lock the rod in a horizontal orientation. A locking pin can be used to hold the rod in position. Operators can move the forklift forward so the elongated rod is inserted into a roll of material. The forks can be raised to lift the roll and transport it to a desired location. The locking pin can be removed and causes the rod to pivot to a vertical position. The roll can now be stored with ease and convenience.

  1. Brad Martin

    Item works fantastic. No more lifting! I recommend this to all flooring companies that have to load, unload or move rolled sheet vinyl around.

  2. Absolute Floor Covering

    Great tool for our warehouse. Employees safe from injuries at a small cost. Easy to use. Light weight and can lift heavy rolls with ease. Vertical lifting was always an issue. Not now!
