Additional features include regenerative braking, available in straddle leg or fully counterbalanced versions, as well as EE and spark resistant ratings. All Ergo-MaticE™ models incorporate Liftomatic’s exclusive Parrot-BeakE™ clamping mechanism, which allows the operator to safely and securely grip the drum lip throughout the pick-up and release process.
