Glass suction lifters

Can anyone recommend any good suction lifters to buy? We have a fair amount of windows and 3 sets of bi-folds to install and think it may be worth buying instead of hiring. Thinking we could also use them for laying tiles after!

 

Cheers

How heavy are the windows and the bifolds? This will dictate what kind of suction lifters to buy and then don't buy cheapo ones, buy ones that are clearly specified for a particular weight. If you're lifting expensive and heavy windows it's also a really good idea to have a suction guage and certificated lifter so you know it's on properly. I've had a non-gauge one let go while moving a window around and thankfully it was still suspended on a proper gauged one at the time so the window just swung around a bit.

 

In terms of specific products, I've got a couple of Faithfull triple pad lifters, Faithful 2 pad lifters and a Grabo. I've used the Grabo a lot as it works on everything from windows to paving slabs and more.
