Welcome to the original

VacuLifter® Assistant



Horizontal lifting of up to 4,000 kg with 5 suction pads for variable loads.

The system arranged in a row scores especially with its ease of handling narrow transport goods of variable sizes and heavy loads thanks to the external suction cups that can be switched on and off.

The U400 series is the ultimate solution for energy self-sufficient lifting of goods up to 4 Tons - with the same ease and intuitive operation as the small U01 series. The U400 is used where there are no more compromises - neither in terms of load nor use. The U400 series can also be perfectly tailored to the individual requirements in use - inside and outside. 

Like all models in the Green Line, our most powerful series is also characterised by maximum sensitivity in handling transporting goods. The proven crane control or the automatic switching of the vacuum when putting on and taking off ensure smooth transport - and so that even with the heaviest loads there are no scratches on the most sensitive surfaces, we have also optimised suction pads and sealing rings made of the highest quality rubber.

    Change set

    The interchangeable set enables different suction pads and compact truss units to be connected via a pin connector and a vacuum quick-release coupling. The suction pad can be replaced quickly and easily without having to separate the VacuLifter from the crane hook. The exchange set is available for loads up to 300 kg. For higher load capacities only available on request.


    Transport trolley

    The rollable transport trolley ensures maximum mobility. The free-standing loading area, where the suction pads float freely during transport, protect the suction pad seals (sealing rings).


    Water separator

    The water separator is particularly recommended for use in a damp environment (e.g. in the area of a water jet cutter or outdoors). The fill level can be viewed at any time through the glass and can be emptied using the drain screw if necessary. This optional accessory prevents moisture from getting inside the device and thus prevents possible corrosion.


    Ergoflex operating handle

    The Ergoflex operating handle offers a number of ergonomic advantages in addition to the standard handle. It can be swiveled by approx. 135 ° so that the height of the handle can be adapted to the operator or the application. The additional telescoping of the handle from 675 to 1030 mm also generates better accessibility, e.g. when transporting wide loads.


    Forklift traverse

    For the use of VacuLifters on a forklift truck, the forklift traverse is required, which is available in different load capacities (630, 1,500 and 2,500 kg). When selecting the appropriate forklift traverse, it should be noted that the weight of the VacuLifter must be added to the maximum load weight.


    Parking supports

    The parking supports provide maximum protection for the suction pads and the sealing rings. If the VacuLifter is not used in the meantime and is parked by the crane, for example, it can be equipped with the fold-up parking supports. When the parking supports are folded down, the suction pads float above the ground and are protected from damage and contamination. In addition, the parking supports can be used as an additional handle / guide handle in a horizontal position and in a vertical upward position. The Green Line VacuLifter can therefore also be operated from the front.


    Suction pad shut-off via manual valve

    The suction pad can be switched off individually or in pairs using additional manual valves. This is an advantage when individual suction pads are not required for a short time. For example, if there are cut-outs in the load or if a smaller dimension is to be transported and the operator cannot or does not want to change the suction pad position and / or crossbar position.


    Foldable beam

    A foldable beam is required if shorter loads, e.g. must be placed in a box or on a table, but an overall longer main traverse for larger load dimensions cannot be dispensed with. The folding traverse guarantees a high degree of flexibility, which prevents a collision with possible obstacles.


    Weld-on hook

    Weld-on hooks make the VacuLifters even more practical. The weld-on hook can easily be attached to different positions in order to hang in different loads.
