The perfect choice for flexible, fast and secure installation of primarily vacuum-dense elements such as granite.

The clever power-saving control system ensures the battery last for a whole working day. Check the charge at a glance with the battery charge indicator – the battery can be exchanged within seconds if needed.

The SM400/600 can be used with any hoist and has a load-bearing capacity of up to 600kg. With a robust and compact main body, it also features integrated suspension for a crane hook.

In seconds, various suction plates can be fitted to the SM via a quick release locating pin, enabling it to be used for many different purposes and loads

An optional trolley (UM-SM) is available, which enables use where hoisting equipment is not available and/ or to provide greater manoeuvrability.

Vacuum Lifting Device SH-2500-UNI-B (petrol)

The SH-500 is designed for the easy and efficient handling and laying of natural stone, concrete and marble slabs, pipes and steps with no compromise on safety. It can hang from any carrier by means of load hooks, chains and cables, and like the SMs it can be adapted for different loads in no time using a variety of quick-release suction plates. A generator can also be set directly onto the device by means of a special frame suspension.

It’s also ideal for laying lighter stone and concrete slabs from 15 up to 150 kg, such patio blocks when adapted with additional devices like the Micro MJ.
