How Useful is a Panel Lifter?
Course Description: 

A panel lifter is a tool for lifting and lowering panels. You can use it on various surfaces, including hard and soft surfaces, and it operates by creating a vacuum that lifts the panels. There are two different types of panel lifters available. Each is designed to work with another kind of floor. A panel lifter can be helpful for various applications, including installing raised access floors, such as stairs and elevators.

When fully assembled, a panel lift is a big piece of equipment, but many models can be disassembled into two or three pieces for easy transport. You can store it in the back of a car or a small truck. A panel lift helps lift upper wall sheets or angled sections, and many models are also inclined to tilt longitudinally for maximum versatility.

A typical Panel Lifter comprises an "L"-shaped load holder attached to a travelling piston 24. This load holder engages panel 80 near floor level or just a few inches from wall 11. It means that the centre of gravity of panel 80 is kept close to the travelling piston. That is especially important if panel 80 is particularly heavy or has to be balanced.

A Panel Lifter is a tool that allows one person to lift a panel without the use of ladders. Its design is patented, and U.S. Pat. No. 5,303,899 describes a hands-free device that allows one person to lift panels to a height of up to 12 feet while simultaneously securing them securely. Another great feature of a Panel Lifter is its self-standing unit.One such Lifter is the Stark professional series, designed to lift panels to four feet by 12 feet. It is easy to use and is made of contractor-grade materials. It has a single-stage winch and is built to last. You'll also find that it is built with a sturdy tripod base for stability and easy maneuverability.

As illustrated in FIG. 1, the quick panel lifter 10 is positioned along a typical vertical wall 11. This wall is either under construction or repairs. The vertical wall 11 includes several studs or beams 82, a bottom plate 84 and a top plate 86. Each plate is secured to the next by at least one pin.

Another panel lifter is a heavy-duty model that carries two sheets of drywall. It has tilting wheels and can balance the drywall over obstacles, and you can use it to lift panels in tight spaces. It is a versatile tool that you can buy from a drywall supplier.
