The new CM 3 Compact Modular Vacuum Lifting System from Vacuworx is changing the game for contractors who run compact equipment such as skid steers, track loaders, articulating wheel loaders and mini excavators on the job every day—now allowing them to handle materials such as concrete slabs, steel plates and pipe up to 6,600 pounds with ease!
With standard mounting, the plate weighs the same as a standard skid steer bucket, so it does not affect the lift capacity of the host machine. The rugged all-steel unit is designed to accommodate single or double pad configurations interchangeably to be able to lift a variety of material weights and sizes. The adjustable spreader bar for double pads extends from 61” to 85” (measured from outside to outside of the seal channels).
The CM 3 is operated by a hydraulically driven vacuum pump using the auxiliary hydraulics from the host machine (minimum 10 GPM required with maximum 3,000 psi). With quick-connect hydraulic hoses and a universal mounting plate assembly, the CM 3 can be attached to a variety of host machines in a matter of minutes. In addition, the unit is equipped with a factory pre-set flow control valve to ensure optimal performance with any equipment. Designed for both jobsite durability and practicality, the CM 3 comes with steel legs for storage, which can either be removed or rotated up when the system is in use.
