The PS 1 Portable Vacuum Lifting System from Vacuworx International offers a completely portable design, rechargeable battery with an eight-hour runtime and lightweight construction that features up to 2,200-pound lift capacity. 

According to a recent article on health risks for construction workers, it is best to limit or eliminate manual heavy lifting when possible. The use of equipment such as vacuum lifting devices is strongly recommended. The PS 1 is a solution for smaller lifting challenges that come up daily on job sites.

The patent-pending portable lifter makes light work out of lifting heavy pieces of concrete, marble, granite, metal, steel and iron. Because it is powered by a 12-volt rechargeable battery, the PS 1 is made for applications where no power source is available or where no emissions are permitted.

Weighing just 25 pounds, the lifter can be used indoors or outside and is a great companion to small equipment such as skid-steers, electric skid-steers, mini electric excavators, forklifts and small cranes. There are three standard, interchangeable pad options ranging from 8 inches by 12 inches (693-pound lifting capacity) to 16 inches by 16 inches (1,654-pound lifting capacity).

Additional pad configurations are available upon request.
