NOTE: Never stand under load being lifted. Always use extra caution. Only use magnetic lifts on material that does not flex or bend. The surface of the lift and the load need to be clean & free of chips, oil, slag, dirt, etc. Lifts must be centered on the load. Not recommended for painted or finish coated surfaces. We recommend when lifting sheets over 8’ long that you use 2 or more lifts. **Maximum sheet lengths are selected due to the sag characteristics of the specified sheet.
