Hy-Brid Lifts has delivered a number of units to rental company Superior Rents.
The delivery of the PS-1930 units, which feature non-folding handrails, followed a specific request from on a Missouri-based retail construction job.
ANSI A92.20 standards, which went into effect 1 June, require manufacturers to increase the platform rail height on their MEWPs, which means many scissor lifts will now have to fold their rails. The compact dimensions of the PS-1930 allow the unit to fit through standard doors and elevators without an operator exiting the lift to fold down the rails.
“On a project like this, door frames are put on early in the process, right after we set the walls,” said Bill Shields, owner of Steel Wall Construction. “Once the door frame is set, it’s a half inch below 7 feet, and none of the other lifts can go through that opening with their rails up. The PS-1930 saves at least 15 minutes each time an operator has to go from room to room.”
The PS-1930 features an industry-leading capacity of 650 pounds and is rated for one person plus materials. the model is 69.5 inches long, 30 inches wide, with a stowed height of 74.5 inches, making it compact for storage and shipping. The platform is 60 inches long, 24 inches wide, with a 30-inch slide-out platform extension. The lift weighs less than 2,000 pounds and also includes the manufacturer’s improved drive system and the LeakGuard.
