FLEX launches the innovative Giraffe Mobile onto the market

Steinheim, March 2023 – FLEX is launching a unique novelty onto the market in the shape of the innovative GM 270 Giraffe Mobile. The compact mobile base is optimised for all FLEX Giraffes, and is also suitable for some comparable tools from other manufacturers. The compact, portable mobile trolley is equipped with a stable holder that allows the Giraffe® to be handled flexibly, without effort and with optimum working pressure. Ideal for use at standard room heights of 2.50 m – 2.60 m.

Using the GM 270 Giraffe Mobile starts by transporting it effortlessly to the job site. The foldable attachment is quick and easy to mount on FLEX 33 and 44 Class vacuum cleaners without using tools. The holder’s two-stage extendable handle and the keyless adjustable lever bar can then be set to the exact working height required before the Giraffe is securely fixed in the tool holder without the need for any assembly work. A flexible gas spring at the head of the holder ensures optimum handling during use.

With the body extended, the FLEX Giraffe Mobile can reach a height of up to 2.70 m and can be moved effortlessly on its sturdy castors. At the same time, the user benefits from an unobstructed view of the surface being worked on. The new FLEX GM 270 Giraffe Mobile is available from dealers from June 2023 onwards.
