GHL PP981 Automatic Pallet Stretch Wrapper Review (LP & HP)

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

GHL PP981 Pallet WrapperDo you have a warehouse that ships out pallets loaded with equipment, retail products and other goods? Chances are that you use a pallet wrapper to keep these products stationary and stable while shipping. If you are in the market for a new automatic pallet wrapper, or need a replacement, you should consider using the GHL PP981 automatic pallet stretch wrapper (found here). This is my review.

GHL is a leading manufacturer of packaging equipment. This includes not only stretch wrappers, but also a wide selection of conveyors, shrink wrap machines, tray sealers and much more. GHL’s products are known for being solid machines, designed to last for years.

The GHL PP981 is available in two versions. This includes the LP and the HP. The only difference between the two is that the HP includes a ramp and the LP does not. The model you get will depend a lot on how you lift, move and load pallets.

This stretch wrapper is one of the entry-level models made by GHL, but don’t let that disappoint you. The PP981 is still a heavy duty machine. It weighs in at 1250 lbs and can hold a loaded pallet up to 3,000 pounds heavy. Don’t worry about moving this stretch wrapper though as it is forklift portable.

Unlike many basic “simple” stretch wrappers, the PP981 is very automated. It has a memory capable of storing up to 10 different common jobs. This is great for repeat jobs, which is very common in a warehouse / packaging environment.

Very little manual effort is involved to run the PP981. It has a heavy-duty drive belt for holding the stretch film and automatically moves the stretch wrap up and down while the turntable spins, accommodating pallets up to 85″ high. The film is pre-stretched, prior to application, to ensure maximum support and stability.

The turntable itself measures in at 59″, able to accommodate most pallets. As the stretch wrap is applied, the turntable spins at a speed of 10 feet per minute. This gets the job  done in a quick and timely manner. The turntable is supported by heavy-duty Delrin Rollers with sealed bearings, making it very quiet. The turntable drive is chain driven.

Don’t worry about the power requirements. The GHL PP981 can be used with a 110-volt power source. This is nice because you don’t have to worry about any special wiring or power.

This machine is heavy-duty, very quiet and perfect for many warehouse-packaging operations. The build quality is excellent, and with proper care, should last you for years.
