Furniture lifts

Shorty 25

The Shorty 25 is the classic for mounting on suitable pick-up chassis. Its total weight is below the 3.5 tonne limit. Its manoeuvrability and low construction height enable it to be used even under difficult local conditions, for example in backyards with low gate entrances. Simple handling and sophisticated technology ensure fast and safe operation. Due to its hoisting height  of 25 m, furniture transport to upper floors is also no problem.

As standard, the Shorty 25 is equipped with a hybrid drive: depending on the location, it can be operated from the vehicle via a PTO auxiliary drive or via a 230-volt electric motor. Thanks to its low-noise drive, this is an advantage when working in hospitals or schools.


Base extension

  • stable base extension can be variably pulled out
  • lower loading height to protect the back whilst working

Rail winches

  • two rail winches for double safety
  • possible to stop the rail in any position
  • skipping the ropes and slack ropes are prevented

Lift control system

  • one-handed operation of all hydraulic functions
  • proportional valves enable sensitive work
  • soft start-up and braking of the slide conserves the transport material

Control on headpiece

  • slide can be moved from top to bottom
  • motor on/off function
  • slide immediately stopped using emergency stop switch

Drive concept

  • drive optionally via powerful auxiliary drive (PTO) from the vehicle or via an electric motor (230 Volt)
  • electric motor with automatic gas control reduces fuel consumption and protects the environment low-noise
  • electric motor useful at special locations such as hospitals

Two luffing cylinders

  • raising of the rails by two massive luffing cylinders
  • double safety due to two cylinders
  • high torsional rigidity and optimum stability

Handheld remote control unit

  • adjustable stopping points
  • soft start-up and braking of the slide
  • wear-free, resistant and safe to operate solenoid switch, no mechanical switching
  • regulation of the speed whilst moving, down to stop, by pressing a button
  • pendant control panel with 5 m cable for engine start/stop, slide up/down as well as emergency off

Rotatable-extendable furniture container

  • Baseplate: 1,500 × 1,000mm
  • Side parts: 400 mm high and can be folded down to increase the loading area
  • no gaps on the transitions
  • height adjustment to adjust the inclination
  • easy to work with as furniture container can be used for loading and unloading
  • due to its rotatability, the furniture container also fits through narrow window openings

Optional equipment

Telescopic supports

  • telescopic supports made of aluminium to protect the rail package
  • increased stability
  • available in lengths of 3,750 to 7,000 mm or 5,000 to 9,000 mm

Extendable pneumatic wheels

  • laterally extendable pneumatic wheels for optimal adjustment to local conditions
  • various widths can be set thanks to several locking points

Furniture container ‘System Paulus’ 

  • closed loading area by extending the side parts
  • no opening on the corners
  • ideal for transporting furniture with feet (armchairs, tables, chairs etc.)
