“Just wanted to give you some feedback on the lifter we purchased a couple of months ago. So far we’ve completed 3 installations. 1. Installation of a 12mm toughened sliding door with top and bottom rails, 2200 x 1880 – we used the quattro to get the glass off the A frame truck, up 5 floors in the lift, then hang the door on the overhead sliding door track without raising a sweat! We had installed 4 of these doors 3 months previously and it was heavy, streuous work, with all the lifting by hand and an extra man. I wish we had had it back when we did the original installation.
2. Installation of a 12.38mm laminated shopfront panel 3100 x 1400. Once again the quattro made it easy to take delivery of the glass, wheel to the job, rotate the glass to it’s vertical position then install.3. Installation of 6 panels of 15mm toughened, 3100 x 1800. We had to supplement the quattro with a small crawler crane as the glass was the same height as the ceiling. We used the quattro to take delivery of the glass and move all 6 panels from the street to the shop – a distance of 250-300metres away – inside one hour with 3 men. We then completed the installation of the glass to the glazing channels by the end of the day. The job was awkward with the limited headroom and having to use the crane to pick up each panel was slow, but the quattro came into it’s own when we were positioning the glass into the channels and adjusting the glass for level agaist the other panels. All the jobs were done without any strain or injury to our crew of 4 – this was a bonus as we have had 2 compo claims for strained backs in the last 12 months. My co-workers were won over very quickly and were overheard commenting that the jobs had gone a lot smoother than they had expected. We’re converted Rick, just wish we’d taken it on earlier!”
