Man Lift

Man-lift design carries workers to new heights. (Building Construction Industry).


Hydraulically operated scissor-type man-lift for manufacturing pre-fab building walls.

Welded steel construction.


A manufacturer of pre-fabricated buildings required a man-lift to carry workers up the side of pre-fabricated walls as they are being constructed.

Two tandem scissor sets provided the lifting guidance.  Synchronized hydraulic actuators provided the lifting power. The hydraulic power unit was remote to reduce noise.
