A maximum of approximately 4' square is recommended for small single pad lifters and 5' x 6' for large single pad lifters. It is difficult to center the vacuum lifter consistently on larger loads. Note: Make sure the operator is completely clear of the load. An operator's feet, hands, etc. should be well clear of the load being handled.
