Hird has strengthened its glass vacuum lifter hire range with the addition of a new version of the Hydraulica 1000 lifter.
The versatile glass vacuum lifter, which has ten vacuum pads, has a lifting capacity of 750kg, which rises to 1000kg with two extension arms, which come as standard.
The Hydraulica 1000 was already popular for glass handling projects, as well as for lifting other products, such as curtain walling, plaster-board, concrete sheets and stone slabs.
Now, the glass vacuum lifter has been updated and comes with dual cylinder hydraulic rams as standard. This allows smooth and seamless power tilting and rotation.
The update means the operators of Hydraulica 1000 glass lifters can lift and place large loads with even greater confidence, safety and speed.
Hird Director John Wilding said:
“Acquisition of the new Hydraulica 1000 maintains Hird’s position of having one of the broadest ranges of vacuum lifters for hire in the UK, and demonstrates our commitment to our customers providing them with the most up to date models and technology.
“We are a one-stop service for glass and materials handling companies, with a wide range of pick and carry mini cranes and glazing robots, including the new Winlet glazing robot which offers class-leading capacity and compact design.”
“We also deliver glass vacuum lifter training and mini crane operator training, and can provide a fully-trained expert team to carry out projects.”
The Hydraulica 1200 is designed to lift large and even irregular loads of up to 1200kg.
As with all Hydraulica machines in the Hird glass vacuum lifter hire range, it has powerful dual independent safety circuits for safe working, a wheeled stand and low vacuum alert.
The Hydraulica 2000 is one of the most powerful vacuum glass lifters available for hire in the UK.
Also recently updated, it has eight removable extensions arms for flexible configuration for different load shapes.
