Vacuworx CM 3 Skid Steer Vacuum Lifting Attachment

Take your concrete and material lifting operations to the next level with the CM 3 Vacuum Lifting Attachment from Vacuworx. Vacuworx attachments feature groundbreaking innovation and technology that results in greater lifting capacities, increased efficiency, and greater worker safety across the board. The CM 3 is the largest and most powerful model, with an ability to be outfitted with either a single lifting pad, or dual lifting pads. For lifting heavier materials of greater size, load up the CM 3 with two powerful lifting pads of the same dimensions (two 24" pads or two 30" pads), and move concrete, marble, granite, sidewalks, and much more with ease. The CM 3 is rugged yet lightweight, so the lift capacity of your host machine is not affected by this attachment. The result is an uncanny attachment that can vacuum lift up to 6,600 pounds when fully loaded. The CM 3 comes standard with manual controls but can also be equipped with a remote control system. 

Benefits of Vacuum Lifting with the CM 3 and your Skid Steer Loader

Combine the CM 3 with your full-size Skid Steer and experience the benefits of Vacuum Lifting, a safer and more time effective lifting solution when compared to traditional methods. Cut down on cumbersome chains, hooks and slings, reduce downtime between lifts, and keep your workers safe and productive. Vacuum sealing creates a powerful engagement of the load and can lift material without displacing adjacent pieces. Prioritize worker safety with Vacuworx, and send your loader outfitted with this trustworthy lifting attachment into areas where people should stay away.
