The Axminster Drywall Panel Lifter is made from an all welded steel construction and can be used by one person. It is controlled by a simple ratchet clutch and cable system. There is a safety latch plus an automatic pawl in the clutch to prevent inadvertent lowering of the board. The tilting cradle brings the loading height down to a manageable 1m. It is then raised using the winch to the required height. It enables plasterboard sheet to be positioned on walls and sloped or level ceilings. The Lifter has a maximum lifting height of 3.35m(11') and can hold up to a 1,200 x 4,800mm (4' x 16') single sheet (max weight 40kg). Mounted on three castors with a 1m splay for stability, it is highly manoeuvrable. The Lifter is quick to assemble and disassemble using no tools, making it easy to transport from job to job. Full instructions are included. We recommend this is only used for positioning single sheets of plasterboard prior to fixing.
