A push around single man lift, also known as a personnel lift, is a type of specialized aerial work platform (AWP) designed to move its passenger safely between different heights or levels in a building. It generally has a reach of 15 to 50 feet.
When not in use, a push around manlift’s extendable legs collapse, measuring between 5 to 6 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide. It’s compact and easily movable, weighing in the range of 200 to 400 pounds, safe for use on fragile floors.
Common settings where push around vertical mast lifts are used range from maintenance tasks, like ceiling work and HVAC ductwork, to camera and lightwork for photographers and videographers, to small residential jobs where a stepladder isn’t safe to use. They’re ideal for jobs that require extended work in tight, elevated locations. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.
