Referring to his new Solar Panel Lifter 'Elvis' has arrived and got his first work out today - did wonderful! Super happy! August 2023

John McClain, McClain’s Electric LLC, Colorado, USA
Bloody awesome, absolute game changer. Was going to put it on social media but then decided against it cos I don’t want my opposition to get wind of if!” May 2023

Brad, Solar One (Egmont Solar), New Zealand
Our Solar Panel Lifter is awesome! Loving that it makes installing solar panels much safer and easier. It’s simple to operate and it fits on top of the work car beautifully.

It’s an easy-to-use solar panel hoist. This fantastic piece of equipment is highly portable, folds out ready for immediate use, and doesn’t need to be dismantled. Delivers up to 3 panels at a time to the roof, is simple to operate, and does not take up a lot of space.

Thank you to the Hytile team for your help”

Rob’s comments on Facebook about his new Solar Panel Lifter: Cheaper than a Geda lift. 2 minutes of assembly and runs flat out all day. Worth every cent!!” “It will change your life. We have also made some crates to go on the carriage to transport the components like feet, mids and ends, tools etc.” January 2020

The Lifter's going great, we got 194 panels up yesterday!” June 2019

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

Craig McGlinn, Reef AC and Electrical, Brisbane
Commenting on his HYTILE SOLAR PANEL LIFTER: "Really happy with my machine. Bought it in May and the boys are loving it. It makes our job safer and a lot easier. Initially I ummed and ahhhed about the price, but I’m so glad I went ahead with it, it’s great." September 2018

"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?? This has been a fantastic machine for so many years and we have looked after it extremely well. Any help would be great." September 2017

Referring to the Hytile FLEX Flexible Pointing: "You're on a winner. Our apprentice who's known as the Dag King did a great, clean job, no dags. Smooths off well. Fluffs up nice with the trowel.
