July 8, 2014 – Custom Equipment says it has upgraded the Hy-Brid HB-830 low-level scissor lift with a longer platform to give maintenance crews and contractors more space for tools and supplies.
Along with a 500-lb capacity, the unit boasts a zero turn radius for easy maneuverability in confined spaces at heights up to 14 ft. The HB-830’s platform is 25.5 in. wide and 55.75 in. long—nearly 9 in. longer than the original model; it also features a 30-in. slide-out extension for additional working space. The platform is operated up and down by the unit’s hydraulics, while the electrical drive and steering systems are powered by two 12V, deep-cycle batteries. According to the company, the HB-830 is suitable to work on various types of delicate flooring, including tile, laminate, raised floors and mezzanines.
