Bohle has further expanded its Liftmaster range of handling equipment with the Liftmaster B1 portable lifter. Designed for use by a single person, the new device, which is smaller, lighter and more compact than the 320Kg capacity B2 model, is capable of moving, handling and mounting flat glass, IG units and other non-porous sheet materials up to 180 kg.
Versatile and manoeuvrable for daily use in glass companies or site work, the Liftmaster B1 can be easily disassembled to fit into almost any estate car for true portability. The Liftmaster’s 0.8 metre width, compact design and excellent manoeuvrability make it well suited for use in narrow spaces. For example, glass can easily be transported through standard doors, subject to sufficient height, by simply rotating the sheet through ninety degrees and lowering it onto the rubber pads of the longitudinal track, which can then be tilted for transport.
The Liftmaster B1 is equipped with a compact, manual suction lifter as standard, with high levels of safety due to a dual circuit vacuum system with four suction pads, a reserve tank, a low-pressure indicator and an additional vacuum display. The manual suction lifter dispenses with the need for recharging batteries meaning it is always ready for use and has been developed by Bohle to be easily demounted with a quick coupling adaptor to be used independently of the Liftmaster. The suction lifter is available as a separate item article number BO B18DM4 and is equipped with eye hooks as a standard. An optional crane arm is available which enables the device to be rotated vertically by 360° or tilted
