How to Choose a Glass Lifting Machine

There are several things to consider when choosing the glass lifting machine and handler that’s right for your needs. And if you let it, the task can quickly become an overwhelming. But we have a few simple recommendations that will help you easily identify which features are most important.

The Size and Height

This probably seems like a no-brainer. But it is crucial that you first take into consideration the size and weight of the glass and other materials you’ll be lifting. Then you’ll want to think about the average height each piece will need to be lifted. Although very basic, this one step will help you quickly narrow the field and make the glass handler you need more apparent.

The Work Environment

Now it’s time to consider the working conditions the glass handler will be used in. It’s important to think about the terrain and weather conditions you’ll most often face—as well as if any jobs will take the work inside. All of this will reveal whether you will need an indoor or outdoor model and help determine if you’ll need any accessories to complete your job.

Securing and Maintaining Your Glass Lifter

Now that you’ve determined the glass lifting machine that will best fit your needs, you’ll need to decide if you’ll rent or buy the machine. If you plan to rent a glass lifting machine, remember that during peak season, advanced notice will likely be required to ensure you have a machine when you need it.

As with any heavy equipment, maintenance is important. Once you’ve determined your work schedule, you’ll also want to get a maintenance schedule in place. This will allow you to work efficiently and avoid unnecessary downtime.
