This recall involves YTL drywall lifts used for lifting sheets of drywall. The metal lifts are red, have three 30 inch legs with casters at the base, horizontal bars at the top to hold the drywall and a telescoping post that can extend vertically to a height of 11 feet using the manual crank. The drywall lifts can fail during use causing the load of drywall to fall onto the lift operator, posing an injury hazard. The recalled drywall lifts have a label on the vertical mast stating “PERFORMANCE BUILT,” “MUD BOSS” OR “150 LB. DRYWALL PANEL HOIST.” The firm has received two reports of the drywall lifts failing and dropping their load. No injuries have been reported.
