The SL-2 subcompact vacuum lifting attachment available for skid steers, mini skid steers, and excavators is the ultimate attachment for operators looking for a lightweight and extremely versatile vacuum lifting attachment. The system has been recently updated (2020) with an improved hydraulic system and modular pads to work with more machines and for applications! Featuring aluminum construction, the design runs off the host machine hydraulic system and can be easily attached in minutes to lift steel plate, concrete, granite, and marble slabs, landscape paves, and more! In addition a quick-connect hydraulic hose makes switching attachments fast and way so you can maximize productivity on the job. Perfect for floor, sidewalk, driveway, road, and landscaping projects.
The SL-2 is a great option for working indoors with no battery to charge. Available with manual or wireless remote control for initiating and releasing the vacuum. Models with accumulator design allow contractors to use the system on equipment without a case drain. Hydraulically driven vacuum pump operates using the auxiliary hydraulics from the hose machine (minimum 10 GPM required with maximum 3,000 PSI).
All system components are manufactured using high-quality aluminum to maximize the overall lifting capacity of the host machine.
Benefits of Vacuum Lifting with the SL 2 and your Skid Steer Loader
Vacuum lifting is a safer and more time-effective solution when compared to traditional methods such as chains, hooks, and slings. Vacuum lifting can help reduce downtime between lifts while keeping workers out of harm's way.
Build Your Vacuum Lifting System
The SL 2 is designed to lift concrete, granite, marble, metal, steel, and other flat non-porous materials. Pair the unit with a vacuum pad to accommodate the size and weight of the material to be handled (material being lifted should not be more than 3 times the length and width of the pad) Next chose the mounting option that fits your needs. The SL 2 can also be connected to small excavators, backhoes, and cranes using a clevis hook connection included.

This is what we are seeing all across the industry; day after day new emails from vendor's telling us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason. The cost of steel materials has been steadily increasing throughout 2020, and it unfortunately has not slowed into 2021. The reduced capacities of companies in this industry due to Covid-19 health and safety regulations continues to have an impact. As a result, we are forced to increase our list pricing for 2021 and add a steel surcharge to off-set the rising costs that is projected to continue this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on our close and prospective customers. We we will do what we can to keep our prices low when the opportunities are found, but right now we are left with little options.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
