Hub shaft helmshouse lifter from BÜTER: Cleverly designed for high cost efficiency

Lifting shaft wheelhouse lifters are used to lift the ship’s wheelhouse or lower it for bridge passages. A lifting shaft consists of interlocking pipes that are moved by means of a hydraulic cylinder. Depending on the available space between the hull and the ship’s deck, larger or smaller lifting heights can be realized.

Büter has designed and patented a round lifting shaft. This unique round design has several advantages over the usual angular shape: greater stiffness with low dead weight, shorter production lead times, fewer components, optimal shape for effective corrosion protection.


The column lifters for wheelhouse are used in inland and coastal shipping. Since the lifting shaft protrudes into the hull, it is preferably installed on ships designed for the transport of containers.


  • Round shape with high stiffness with low dead weight
  • Construction with few components, thus cost-effective
  • Low-maintenance components
  • Robust and durable construction
  • Hydraulic cylinders from our own production
