This mid-range TPM model has a maximum working load limit of 500kg, but this will be dependent on the type, size, shape and condition of the material. It can manage metal loads with flat surfaces, as well as those with rounded exteriors, which gives it the edge in terms of convenience and productivity over other lifting options.
It is just one of the excellent Yale products we stock, with this brand being an industry leader in many market segments.
Like the many permanent lifting magnets we stock at LGD, the TPM 0.5 from Yale is built to avoid many of the limitations that come with choosing a battery powered alternative. Since there is no electricity involved in activating its magnetic properties, it will be simple and effective in a wide range of situations. From shifting metal sheets, beams and poles to lugging irregular scrap metal objects from A to B, its no-nonsense design and innate reliability are both big selling points.
Another factor worth celebrating is its minimal maintenance requirements. Magnets are fairly straightforward, in spite of their slightly mystical properties, so there is no real need to repair or replace this bit of kit over time. Conversely with a powered setup, the battery can begin to degrade and lose performance in the long term.
The lever which activates and deactivates the magnet of this lifter is prominently displayed on the side of the unit, so it should be within easy reach. This also means it is fairly exposed and could be jogged or knocked during transit, which might lead to the load being released unexpectedly.
For obvious reasons this handle is designed to lock in place when under load, so it will not slip out and cause a catastrophe. All you need to think about is whether the load itself is within the safe weight range, as well as how its shape will impact the capacity limits of the TPM 0.5.
