LIFTMAN

For work on high-sided vehicles — at any height or position — scaffolds and ladders are still the most common access systems.

Purpose-designed LIFTMAN provides increased safety for operators while significantly improving both efficiency and surface-treatment quality.

The easy-to-manoeuvre LIFTMAN access platform is a highly effective way to provide safe, comfortable working conditions almost everywhere ladders or scaffolding are normally used — provided the work area has a reasonably smooth floor and a supply of compressed air.

LIFTMAN is steered from the operator’s cage — it can be driven around the vehicle being sprayed, regardless of the cage’s height above the floor.

Paint, mask, add signs, apply decals, or make repairs on high-sided vehicles with greater speed and safety than normally attainable using stepladders or scaffolding.

The small footprint of LIFTMAN reduces congestion in spray booths and other confined work areas, and eliminates workplace obstructions caused by the use of conventional access equipment.

Because LIFTMAN is powered only by compressed air, it is safe to use in hazardous environments such as spray booths.

LIFTMAN provides a highly efficient way to work. It significantly increases job safety and productivity — at low maintenance and operating costs.

Safety

  • Fail safe operating mode
  • Enclosed operator cage providing a safe and stable working platform owing to the heavily ballasted base
  • Pneumatic operation – no ignition risk
  • International approvals and certification
  • Many independent safety features throughout the design

Efficiency

  • Driveable and steerable by operator from any height
  • Logical and ergonomic operator controls
  • In-cage air supply point for tools or spray guns
  • Tool-tidy and masking paper support as standard
  • On-board air supply hose reel – travel independently up to 10metres from each air supply point
  • Suitable for driving on small mesh gridded floors - or, with twin wheel option, on wider mesh grids
  • Easily moved manually with supplied steering arm when disconnected from air supply point
  • Easy to use, giving improved operator satisfaction and higher productivity

Reliability

  • Low cost maintenance because the design comprises easily replaced standard components
  • Over 20 years of continuous product development enables LIFTMAN to consistently meet safety legislation
  • Many hundreds of units supplied to date
  • The oldest ones are still in daily use
