Lifting is hydraulically synchronized for improved shoe alignment. The swing shoe function features four hydraulic cylinders to move shoes in and out for easy positioning over loads. Exclusive Gerlinger design locates swing pivot point over the load, resulting in positive inward swing of shoes to more securely hold the load.
