GL Heavy Lifter

GL Brochure





  • The JDPower GL is a compact electric lifter ideal for vertical and overhead glazing.
  • Depending on the model, the GL can lift weights up to 300kg to heights of 8.5 meters.
  • As with all JDPower lifters, the GL folds for easy transportation and stowage.
  • The GL uses counter-weights - making it ideal for vertical and overhead glazing work. Counter-weights ensure there are no front-facing legs to stabilise the unit.
  • The GL comes with optional extras such as a battery for operation on sites without power, a wireless remote control and a range of swappable adapters for handling different materials.
  • Primary difference between the ES/CS and GL - GL uses counterweights so it is capable of getting close to a wall, ES/CS has front facing legs that eliminates the need for counterweights. However, on the ES/CS this means you cannot operate adjacent to a wall for glass.

Key Features

  • Quick folding base, set up in 30 seconds without tools.
  • Very strong and compact construction
  • Heavy duty casters for moving the lefter on site.
  • Can operate on uneven ground or slopes.
  • Lifting eye for crane transportation.
  • Can be transported easily in a vertical or horizontal configuration.
  • Optional battery and radio control.
