The HB-1230 vs. Mast Style Lifts

12 foot mast lifts have a compact footprint that works for navigating the narrow spaces often found in multi story construction.  Unfortunatelty, this compact footprint comes with a standard compact work space.  The HB-1230 by Hy-Brid Lifts also has a compact overall size but has a much larger work space. The HB-1230 has numerous other features and benefits that make it the ideal choice over mast style lifts.

HB-1230 Work Area Comparison


The HB-1230 only weighs about 1,700 lbs, which is a little less than most mast lifts. That, combined with the lowest floor loading pressures in the scissor lift industry, make it perfectly suited for multi story construction jobs.

The platfrom capacity for the HB-1230 is 550 lbs, which is enough for 2 workers plus tools and materials.  No need for multiple trips up and down.


The zero-turn radius (ZTR) provides smooth and easy navigation in tight areas without inflicting damage to the surrounding environment. The proportional drive and lift controls offer better control over the movements and speed of the lift. Together, these features work hand-in-hand to provide safer and more accurate navigation.  

User-Friendly Design

The HB-1230 has a low step in height with a full swing gate for easy entry and exit.  The oversized pins provide a sturdier elevated platform than mast lifts.  Built in tool holders and trays keep tools and materials organized and out of the way until they are ready to be used.
