        A vacuum lifter is a device used to lift and move heavy objects using the power of suction. It consists of a suction pad or a series of suction cups that create a vacuum seal with the object’s surface. When activated, the vacuum creates a strong grip, allowing the lifter to attach to the object securely.

        The Cool Boy RW is powered the same way as the original Cool Boy vacuum lifter. Both are powered by a battery and have a built-in charger. The Cool Boy RW will also display the battery charge, warning the user when it is of low battery power.

        The vacuum lifter is commonly used in various industries, such as manufacturing, construction, and logistics, where heavy objects need to be lifted and moved with precision and efficiency. It offers a safe and effective way to handle heavy loads without the need for manual lifting or complicated rigging systems.

        Yes, online training is available for operating the Cool Boy RW machine, and it is strongly recommended for team members with little experience in operating vacuum lifters. Our Cool Boy RW online training is split out into several videos followed by short quizzes and completed with a test. A successful pass mark will be awarded with a training certificate.
