GL Heavy Glass Lifter

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.
