The Eagle PJ1000 pallet strapping system eliminates double handling. First, the Eagle PJ1000 enters the pallet. It quickly threads two straps through the pallet, up the back, and over the top. Next, the operator pulls the strap from the auto strap gripper located at the front end of each fork to the front of the pallet. Then, they pull the strap from the top of the Eagle PJ1000 and feed both ends into a strapping tool. This completes the strapping in the usual manner.
