The Backsaver Unit
A Revolutionary Convenience and Safety Feature for Animal Control Vehicles
A few years ago we started manufacturing our "Hernando County BackSaver Unit". The BackSaver is a 7 hole unit with a hoist to raise and lower large or aggresive animals. This reduces the risk of injury to the animal control officers by not lifting or handling large animals. The hoist has a 300 pound lifting capacity.
The hoist includes all wiring and hand controls for raising and lowering the cage.
The cage is constructed from punched aluminum and measures 26" high x 21" wide x 46" deep.
The BackSaver is operated by pulling the cage out (which is on a telescopic arm), then turning the cage sideways, and lowering it to the ground via hand control.
The BackSaver uses a 12 volt electric winch, with a 2,000 pound capacity, and a 3/16 inch cable.
