For those who are limited for space, the entry-level Compact rotary dryer offers maximum drying taking up minimum room in the garden. The Compact rotary dryer features robust coated steel arms and 35mm diameter aluminium main tube and can be tensioned in two positions using the easy to operate adjustable ‘umbrella’ system and is available with 3 arms and 30 metres of drying length or 4 arms and 40 or 50 metres of drying length, which makes this airer is best suited to those washing for a small family of 2-4 people.

One of the most popular airers in the range is the Lift-O-Matic, using the special Lift-O-Matic system you can adjust the dryer to your ideal working height, put your wet washing in place then hoist it up to its full height and then leave the wind to do the rest. The dryer is seamlessly adjustable between 124-182 cm and is equipped with a 45mm diameter aluminium main tube and 40, 50 or 60 metres of extra-strong line with non-slip profile.

  1. Does the lift o matic spin in the wind?

    • Good morning Sue,

      The Brabantia Lift-O-Matic rotary does not spin in the wind.
      The only rotary that we stock that does spin in the wind is the Brabantia Top Spinner.

      We hope this helps,

  2. A critical factor for me is the diameter of the turning circle, and this is a feature frequently not mentioned

    • Hi Michael,
      Thank you for your comment.
      We endeavour to provide as much information as possible on our product listings so you should be able to locate the diagonal span of our rotaries however please get in contact if there is a particular rotary you require further dimensions for. We hope this helps! 🙂
