Take care of this lift and treat it wit respect
I bought my lift in 1993, and used it to hang ceilings and walls so much untill a few years ago, and now i use it on ocassion, and works as well as when it was new. Some key items for long life is keep the floor clean. If you drop nails or screws, pick them up. they can chip your wheels. Don't run over extention cords, wheels can only take so much. And very importantly, don't anyyone stand on the wheel braces. There not meant for that. You may have to replace the cable, or the brass rollers, but thats normal maintence. I've hung many houses by myself. Once you figure this machine out, you'll see as i did that this is the best tool you can get for hanging drywall. I've seen a contractor use one for putting up top cabinets in the kitchen.

Pro Quality
As a contractor I can say these telpro panel lifts are top of the class. I have been using the same lift four or five times a year and it's going on its 12th year.

wow what a great product!
This product does everything I need, holy cow! best thing I ever owned this unit I bought from the tool rental center second hand and it works for every job I have! durable sturdy and a must have for anyone doing a lot of drywall like me! I have tried other lifts and they seem badly built and not a sturdy most other units cant even lift what I need! but this is a must have for any pro contractor.
