The M-8 is a hydraulic, compact, lightweight and easy to handle tool. It is delivered with a simple control box and a 2-inch x 36-inch lift cylinder. The Operator clips the leaf lard with the M-8 jaw and the lift cylinder starts the upward pull automatically. In very high volume plants, the operation can be subdivided and once started the leaf lard can be suctioned by a vacuum leaf-lard puller. Save on personnel costs and reduce personnel injuries.
