According to the company, the VB vacuum lifter/rotator is an ergonomic lifter that features a top- and side-grip vacuum head with a side pivot point, which lets one operator pick up a heavy load and rotate it 90°. The company says the vacuum comes equipped with fingertip controls on the handlebar, a vacuum gauge, quick-release and a check valve.

The vacuum is said to be suitable for small, heavy loads, such as sealed batteries and capacitors and is available from the company in capacities up to 500 lbs. Powered by a remote vacuum station, the company says it has a lightweight aluminum and steel frame assembly that is said to eliminate the need for two people to handle heavy loads.
