Our torso lifter is a professional built erector that was built to accommodate the common "bucky" skeleton and give life(movement) to a once static prop. The erector bolts safely around the spine of the skeleton using 4 long 3/8 diameter u-bolts (not included), and erects a bucky from a laying to sitting up position (approximately 80 degrees).
Perfect for use in coffins or mounted to the ground. Lifter must be bolted or weighted onto a solid surface to ensure the armature and prop remain in its desired location. Welded mounting tabs are included.
Due to the fragile nature of the "Bucky" skeletons, DC advises that the skeleton (specifically the arms) be adhered using latex and cheese cloth to adhere the body together. This adhering or corpsing will greatly improve the strength and life span of the skeleton. Works best with arms in static position, such as attached to chest and will prevent flailing arms and possible injury.
Also includes a "stopper" brace to prevent un-desired strain on the cylinder. Bucky torso not included, but available. This kit includes 12V valve with 110V transformer, flow controls for adjusting the lift and decent speeds, and all required airlines for connection to your compressor line. No controller is included. Requires 110V power and a compressor with 100-120 PSI.
Approximate Size 20" x 10" x 6"
