BUX R Series battery powered lift magnets

BUXR03330 - BUXR Series Battery Lift Magnet

The special feature of these Battery Powered Lifting Magnets is its unique pole shoe design, which enables it to handle a wide variety of structural shapes and rounds.

Powered by its own battery, it is free of restricting cords and wires, and can also operate in areas where electric power is not readily accessible.

This unique magnet is ideally suited for handling pipe, tubing, bar stock, billets, I beams, H beams, angles, channels, Tees, Zees, and pilings. Although specially designed to handle structural shapes and rounds, the Bi-Polar configuration also lifts plate, forgings, and castings. Batteries not included.

*Weights are approximate net values. Shipping weights will be higher.
**Varies based on shape and thickness. Max capacity tested on AISI 1020 steel; other materials may perform at a lower max capacity and should be evaluated for a magnetic derate value.

The maximum rated lift is based upon lifting clean, smooth, flat, low-carbon steel, 2″ or thicker with the magnet’s lifting surface in full contact with the load. Derating is required for plates or other loads with rust or scale, loads thinner than 2″, or alloy steels. Please consult the OPERATOR’S MANUAL AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS for more details.
