The SL 609 Outdoor is the first in a new generation of glass lifters from Smartlift.

With a reach of up to 2.3 metres (with the arm extended) and a lifting height of up to 4.2m, the SL 609 is the perfect all-round glass manipulator. Electric rotation of the arm and yoke offers greater flexibility than traditional models, further demonstrating its effectiveness.

New Features & Functionality

This new offering from Smartlift features a straight up and down movement, not in a curve, but a precise straight movement to help save time and improve efficiency during the mounting of glazing units. The operator can now even save and reload positions for repeated mounting purposes, helping to further increase efficiencies.

Faster operation with increased speed for lifting and tilting is made available by the introduction of much faster actuators, with the same high precision as previous models.

A new maintenance-free battery pack is also included based on gel battery technology with a robust long lifetime, helping to increase the general availability of your machine.
