As the saying goes – seeing is believing.
It is simple to use, extremely robust and able to lift a sheet of glass or other non-porous smooth sheet material weighing half a tonne to a height of 7.9m and install it directly overhead.
We could see the attractiveness of combining a proven, highly compact and easy-to-use counterbalance floor crane like the GML800+ with a vacuum lifter.
The resulting material lift is ideal for lifting and installing glazing panels into roofs and cupolas, especially where space is at a premium and across low load-bearing floors.
The GML800+ Manipulator has a maximum safe working load of 500kg.
Its radio remote control vacuum lifter head can be rotated through 360 degrees, tilted through 90 degrees and tilted side to side 10 degrees in either direction.
It is one of a range of Weinold counterbalance floor crane hire options available from Hird.
The material lifts can also be fitted with other accessories, such as forks or a jib to provide a safe working load of 800kg.
Combined with a winch, the GML800+ is ideal for negative duty lifting of façade panels up the side of buildings.
The GML800+ counterbalance floor crane is ideal for confined space working. It is just 780mm wide and less than 2m long and tall.
Hird can supply the push-around material lifts in three lifting power formats:
- Manual, with a manual winch or three-step drill kit
- AC mains electric
- Bi-energy, with DC batteries or AC mains electric power
The electric-powered versions can be operated using a remote control.
There is also a GML Compact, which is just 1530mm long. It can lift 600kg or 800kg to 6.95m, depending on how many counterweights are used.
