Engineered to Perform.  Built to Last.

WTC Pad Lift Device (PLD)


WTC's Pad Lifting Devices and Pad Change Lines use hydraulic cylinders to lift the group of track shoes off the links. This eliminates the need to handle the shoes during pin and bushing turns, and makes the pad changeover process quicker and easier.  Adding a PLD or PCL will increase shop efficiency and help to maintain a safer working environment for operators.  They are available as stand alone units or as an addition to your new or existing Track Press. 

The PLD40 and PLD50 are designed for the WTC305 or WTC385 Track Presses, and are powered by the hydraulic system of the track press.

The PLD40 and PLD50 are also available as free-standing units, complete with 12,000 lb (5450 kg-f) winch and dedicated hydraulic power source.

Pad change lines can be added to most conveyor systems manufactured by WTC Machinery, Trackmaster, Wolf, Centurion or Mattson.
