Oktopus KT-B + DT5 Cladding Lifter

KT-B + DT5 Cladding Lifter


The KT-B + DT5 is a crane mounted roof installation vacuum lifter. The basic KT-B fits inside the DT5 extension frame and allows larger roof panels to be lifted up to 12 metres in length.

It has a 400 KG lifting capacity and can be used for fitting roof panels. It is fully dual circuit for added safety and features quick change batteries, which helps maximise site usage time (and means less risk of having a crane standing with a flat vacuum lifter).
