Elevating workshop from Lift-a-Loft
02 April 2008
US specialist access equipment manufacturer Lift-A-Loft Corporation in Muncie, Indiana of the US has developed a mobile, elevating workshop to service refrigerated overseas shipping containers. Lift-A-Loft's product, called the MSP11 Special, has a 680 kg capacity and provides platform heights of 0.9 to 3.4 m.
The work compartment of the electrically powered MSP11 includes workbenches, air compressor, hose reel, light reel, space heater, bench vice, florescent lighting, storage for gas bottles, 480 V connector, and power transformer. The machine drives from the compartment at creep speed when elevated and at 4.8 km/hr when lowered. Side and top flaps seal against the container to protect the operator from inclement weather.
Lift-A-Loft has delivered eight units to the Seattle location of its customer, a shipping company that wants to remain un-named.
