Hy-Brid HB-P1027 scissor lift promises greater maneuverability
By Anthony Capkun
October 16, 2014 – The push-around HB-P1027 low-level scissor lift from Custom Equipment features a zero-turn radius and 22 x 35 in. platform for maneuverability, and is suitable for tasks at heights up to 16 feet.
The ANSI/CSA-compliant HB-P1027 lifts as much as 550 lb; the unit itself weighs 870 lb but its weight distribution provides wheel loads as low as 250.3 psi, says the company, enabling the lift to maneuver over fragile flooring with minimal risk. The hydraulic system is self-contained and has only two connection points, reducing the potential for leaks.
The HB-P1027 also features an access gate that swings completely open to allow users to step up and into the platform, which promises easier material handling. The scissor stack features 1.25-in. pins to enhance stability and reduce sway, and does not require greasing. absorbent glass mat battery never requires users to add water, while the self-regulating charger prevents the battery from over-charging.
