Mobile column agitator with manual lift for all types of transport containers

Extremely versatile with manual lift

Our mobile column agitators are in their element when containers are mixed at different locations during the manufacturing process. The manual lift height adjustment of 1,200 mm enables the agitating of different transport containers such as 1,000 litre IBCs, 200-l plastic drums, hobbocks and customer-specific stainless steel tubs.

The chassis is equipped with a stainless steel fork construction. The attached lift truck made of painted steel has a hydraulic lifting and lowering function. Smooth-running plastic wheels and a small steering radius allow precise positioning.

The VJ480 is also available with different drive variants and mixing units. The high-quality stainless steel design as well as the internal lifting mechanism and integrated cable guide facilitate quick and easy cleaning of the agitator and safe operation.

In combination with our switch set and control solutions, it is also possible to individually adjust the agitating speed,  time and recipe setting and selection.

VJ480 Highlights


Fully mobile

Versatile, can be used anywhere



Compact and efficient solution for container heights of up to 1,200 mm


Individually configurable

The multi-function tool
for increased productivity



Mobile agitator with smooth-running lifting carriage system and plug & play solution.
The attached lift truck has a hydraulic lifting and lowering function. Smooth-running plastic wheels and a small steering radius allow precise positioning.


1,200 mm lift height allows maximum flexibility when stirring different container sizes


The lift height can be adjusted quickly and easily via a handle on the column arm. For convenient operation, the manual lift height adjustment is equipped with profile rail guide and counterweight.


Various drive powers from 1.5 – 3 kW for a customised and sustainable solution for the customer’s agitating task


ATEX version of the agitator for zones 0 or 21 possible


Built-on frequency converter for individual speed control


High level of safety during agitator operation thanks to the integrated working position switch and container detection on the column base. Operation of the agitator is only enabled after positive feedback from the safety switches.


Perfect finishing

High-quality stainless steel column and the roller belt cover in hard-wearing PUR for quick and easy cleaning to avoid long downtimes during the production process.


Can be combined with all VISCO JET® impellers for optimum stirring results with consistent product quality over the long term


Standard connection

The agitator is equipped with a high-voltage connection and is therefore ready for immediate use in the agitating process.


Well shielded

Internal cable routing for safe and injury-free handling

Well thought-out, right down to the smallest detail
