Interesting tool for one man to fit plasterboard. I'm still sticking to a board lifter but for some this might be an interesting tool. Guess it's been talked about here before? See here

I've seen these, figured board props or lifter is quicker

Lol I use my head and some props... if I was to do a lot then a lifter is worth it

I’ve got telescopic poles I wedge up, and a collated Hilti gun. Proper job.

They’re ideal for domestic jobs, a bit more house friendly especially if you’re carrying upstairs you don’t want to be knocking pictures off the walls etc.
More expensive, but more convenient.

I hire board lifter. £25 day or £45 a week. I don't do much boarding theses days and I struggle to lift them. Getting old
