Aerial Lifts Defined
Lifts for more workspace and lifting capacity where less reach and height are required.
They are designed to provide larger platform work areas and generally to allow for heavier loads than boom lifts. Scissor lifts may be maneuvered in a manner similar to boom lifts, but the platform may be raised only vertically, except for an available option that extends the deck horizontally up to 6. ft. (1.83 m). Scissor lifts are available in various models with maximum platform heights of up to 50 ft. (15.24 m).
Articulating Boom Lifts
Lifts for overcoming obstacles such as machinery, equipment, and other mounted obstacles.
Articulating boom lifts (knuckle booms) are used for reaching up and over machinery, equipment, and other obstacles mounted on floors, and for reaching other elevated positions not easily approached by a straight (telescopic) boom lift. The machine's turntable may be rotated 360 degrees in either direction. The boom can be raised or lowered from vertical to below horizontal, and extended (telescoped) while the work platform remains horizontal. It can be maneuvered forward or backward and steered in any direction by the operator from the work platform, even while the work platform is elevated. Most articulating models are drivable at full elevation and have chassis widths that provide access to narrow industrial aisle ways and congested work areas.
Vertical Personnel Lifts
Small efficient one man lifts for easy reach capable of moving through standard door openings.
Vertical personnel lifts consist of a work platform attached to an aluminum mast that extends vertically, which in turn is mounted on a steel base. The AM (ACCESSMASTER (c) ) Series is a "push-around" machine that can be rolled in the retracted position through standard door openings. The DVL Series is a self-propelled machine that is drivable at full platform height. Also available are the unique SP Series stock pickers that will help to improve the efficiency, reach and safety of hand stock picking.
Telescopic Boom Lifts
Lifts specializing in the requirement of reach capability.
The machine's turntable may be rotated 360 degrees in either direction. The boom can be raised or lowered from vertical to below horizontal and extended while the work platform remains horizontal. It can be maneuvered forward or backward and steered in any direction by the operator from the work platform, even while the boom is extended. (Also called a straight or stick boom)
Telehandlers are low-profile, variable-reach machines designed for lifting and transporting materials to heights of 55 ft. (16.76 m). These machines feature 90 degree rear pivot steering, hydrostatic drivetrains and the industry's strongest booms. Even on tight jobsites, operators can turn sharp corners, move down narrow aisles and square lumber and block to the landing areas with greater speed and accuracy. Plus, a mid-mounted engine provides better weight distribution, making it easy to operate in mud, rocks or sand.
Material Lifts are used for lifting heavy material to or from shelves, loading and unloading heavy materials, supporting materials and for many other applications. Portable material lifts easily and safely lift up to 1,000 pounds (454 kg) from ground level to heights of up to 26 feet (7.9 m) Each model is completely portable and highly maneuverable.
