Lift for Hanging Panels on WALLS
1 Tool 1 Person
4 Functions Transport Lift Adjust Hold
For decades, drywall installers have craved a mechanical device to facilitate the installation of drywall panels directly upon walls.
That device is now available from HTM Innovations and is the patented HangPro Drywall Lift for Walls.
It is the only device on the market that is specifically designed to Transport, Lift, Adjust and Hold a panel on a wall.
The number one grievance of drywall installers is the immensity of lifting, carrying and hanging heavy drywall panels. Each panel can weigh between 55 to 110+ pounds and working with these heavy panels throughout the day increases the possibility of a serious injury. The HangPro Drywall Lift for Walls eliminates these strenuous and dangerous tasks by incorporating an L-shaped hand truck design with a unique single column.
On a typical job site the operator will use the HangPro Drywall Lift for Walls to transport drywall panels from the storage location to the wall site. To load the lift, the operator will push the lift like a hand truck to the center of the stacked drywall then walk to one end of the panel and raise the edge of the panel about six inches. The operator then shifts the panel onto the cradle ledge. This is the most lifting the operator will do! To transport the panel the operator tilts the lift back so it is resting on the large rear wheels and can be pushed in a hand truck fashion. To transport through a door opening or hallway, the lift needs to be tilted forward until it is resting on the casters located at the front of the lift.
At the wall site, the operator positions the HangPro Drywall Lift for Walls close to and parallel with the wall studs. The operator then tilts the lift forward onto the wall studs so it is resting on the front casters. The operator then cranks the winch which lifts the panel to the proper height. The auto locking winch holds the panel securely in place. The lift can be moved side to side on the casters to precisely position the panel. Once the top edge of the panel is secured, the cradle can be cranked down and the lift removed so the remaining fasteners can be installed. The bigger the panels the less taping and mudding that has to be done.
Note: The HangPro Drywall Lift for Walls is designed for wall heights not to exceed 10 feet. The main frame has a safety stop to prevent the accidental elevation of the carriage beyond the safety height limit of the column.
The HangPro Drywall Lift for Walls can be folded in half for easier transportation.
