Horizontal Stacker Overview Video



The Horizontal Stacker stacks trusses horizontally (flat), just like they will be shipped. This reduces truss handling which naturally results in less damage to trusses and fewer injuries to material handlers. Combine that with the Horizontal Stacker’s heavy-duty construction and compatibility with existing conveyor systems, and it is an ideal choice for post-fabrication handling. 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 for more flexibility and the ultimate in efficiency.
