Additional Options:

Clad boy  Transporter

The Clad boy can be moved very compactly with the transporter. The transport frame with rubber tyres fits into the boot of a station wagon and can be moved by one person.


The practical storage rack for the Clad boy and its attachments, such as suction plates and traverses. Stored safely, the STORE-BOY is also suitable for transport by forklift truck and van.

Battery changing unit

The compact battery unit is the optimal safety net for operating the Clad boy on long working days and ensures fast processes if the original battery runs out.

Cross beam 45°

Due to the 45° inclined cross beam, roof panels for laying on inclined roofs can be optimally picked up, transported and laid. Pointed roofs are therefore no problem!

Pendulum suspension 45° right or left

The freely oscillating suspension for suction plates, inclined 45° to the right or left, allows the suction and transport of trapezoidal sheets on the trapezoidal slopes in very deep trapezoidal valleys.


With the Carry boy,  transporting the Clad boy in any estate vehicle is child’s play. Rubberised wheels and carrying handles make it easy to move and load the transport frame and equipment.


The optimal place for all small accessories and attachments such as hoses, safety belts, tools or exchangeable seals for attachment to the Store boy or for separate transport.

Spring loaded suction plate holder

Protective cover Ø80×400
Reliably protected against transport damage and external influences such as water or dust, the coating for suction plates ensures a significantly longer service life, which is particularly noticeable in continuous use.
Special suction plate holder 230mm
For the maximum possible immersion depth of 23 cm in trapezoidal sheet metal, the long special suction plate holders are suitable. The spring-loaded bearing also makes the intake of the transported goods particularly gentle.

Maintenance & UVV inspection

With an annual maintenance and inspection of your vacuum lifter in accordance with the accident prevention regulations (UVV), you achieve increased reliability for man and machine.

Spring loaded suction plate holder for horizontal wall mounting

Spring-loaded suction plate suspensions for the wall mounting set ensure gentle positioning of the CLAD-BOY® on workpieces and compensate for height differences between the contact surfaces of the suction plates.

Suspension for horizontal wall mounting

The suspension extends the performance range of the Clad boy for mounting panels and panels horizontally on the wall. The suspension reliably holds the transported goods and secures the installation.
