Morning droogies, one of the fixers got one on site today, makes easy work of lifting the blue sound boards onto ceiling. They vary in price anyone got any recommendations I could use one on my domestic jobs @Lodan @Olican @TonyM ?

Mine is a Sumner. They are about £7-800 now. Luckily I bought mine secondhand for £250. Great if you work on your own.

Cheers, they vary in price from about £100-£1000 ideal for heavy boards or working on your Tod, like the way you can easily adjust a board with no struggles, normally use a pair of telescopic props but it’s still a pain.

I just got the cheapish eBay one for £100, does the job and not let me down yet. Had to do an upstairs with 15mm boards and it was a god send would have been f**k*d on my own without it

Great for sloping ceilings too. Did a 65m2 3m high sloping ceiling in just over half a day recently @£6 a metre. Will pay for itself in no time

Something cheap and cheerful will do me fine, it’s not for everyday use.

Yes, they do look the business. I haven't got one, but would be a nice upgrade:love:

We've got one of these and it's worth its weight in gold.
Having had one I'd suggest that you avoid the cheap ones, when they go bang they really go BANG!
I have a cheap one, served me well till December, she's broken now :cry:
Can i borrow yours and never take it back lol:D

That'd be jolly good of you (y)
Ok the lifter is all packaged up and on its way to you.
Obviously as I'm doing you a favour I knew that you'd cover the postage.
Honestly I shopped around and the cheapest I could find was £950, overnight.
I'll PM you my PayPal account details so you can make a friend's and family payment.
You're welcome.
