OVERVIEW

The Horizontal Stacker evolved from a long line of material handling equipment developed just for the truss fabricating industry. Our Horizontal Stacker stacks trusses horizontally (flat), reducing truss handling and minimizing the possibility of damage to the trusses.  

The Horizontal Stacker's heavy-duty construction and compatibility with existing conveyor systems make it an ideal choice for post-fabrication handling. It also reduces the risk of injury commonly found in banding and manual stacking procedures.  Reliable hydraulic operation with a built-in heater makes this different from other stackers! And a remote radio transmitter allows the operator to carry the control station throughout the plant and lumber yard to give the operator more flexibility and efficiency.

  • Reliable hydraulic operation with a built-in heater
  • Remote radio transmitter allows the operator to carry the control station throughout plant and lumber yard
  • Choose 2 or 4 zones
  • Powered Stand-Alone Conveyors
