    Published on 16 April 2019, Tuesday, 4:50 AM

    If you're a tradesman who's been tasked with air conditioner installation, it might be time to consider the best tools for your project.

    Air conditioning units can be heavy and tricky to manoeuvre, so you'll want all the help you can get in installing it.  A material hoist GL lift may be the perfect accompaniment to the task at hand.

    Using a hoist can help with particularly tricky objects, and will save you from putting unnecessary strain on your back. Often, air conditioning units need to be installed in high, hard to reach places, so a hoist is the perfect fit for helping achieve this.

    The hoist can lift up to 3600mm high, at a wight of up to 159kg. It has adjustable leg width which allows for greater stability, so there's less chance of anything toppling over. 

    The material hoist has forks that reach to the end of its legs to allow for working against walls. Many models also have ladders incorporated, making it easier than ever to install that new air conditioning unit in the home or office.
