Talking about his new HYTILE SOLAR PANEL LIFTER: " We do a lot of two storey 40 panel jobs and we’ve been able to drop back to three guys instead of four on those. Also, at the end of the day, physically I’m not feeling like it was a 40 panel job. Absolutely love it!” February 2019

"My lifter is going really well. There were a couple of different kinds of lifters on the market when I bought it but I reckon I made the right choice."

"Hi, our Cable Hoist was purchased by my father over 30 years ago! It has just stopped working. I wondered if there is anywhere in the U.K. we could get it looked at as I feel there can’t be much to go wrong??
