HOW IS HY-BRID LIFTS ZERO-TURN FUNCTION DIFFERENT FROM STANDARD DRIVE SYSTEMS?

Hy-Brid Lifts Zero-Turn Series work platforms were designed with controls that are more instinctual than standard style drive controls.  All directional movement is fully proportional and controlled solely with the joystick, not with a toggle switch on top of the joystick like standard controls.  

By changing the drive system we have been able to provide controls that offer a greater degree of maneuverability and inspire greater levels of confidence in operator capabilities.

What makes our Zero-Turn function different?

Unlike the drive system on a standard mast style lift, Hy-Brid Lifts™ Zero-Turn Series system is actually a subzero-turn system meaning the turn radius is less than zero.

How is that possible?

The directional drive is determined by the back wheels turning in opposite directions when the joystick is moved left or right.  

The zero-turn function of Hy-Brid Lifts™ Zero-Turn Series provides operators with a master level of control for reaching spaces previously accessible only with unsafe ladders.

 

Hy-Brid Lifts Zero-Turn vs Vertical Mast Drive Operation

Why break from standard zero-turn drive function?

Efficiency. We observed operators struggle to gain access to small spaces, and maneuver around tight corners and down narrow hallways.  During these observations we noticed how time consuming it is for sluggish, bulky machines to navigate a complex jobsite.  That time costs companies thousands of dollars over time resulting in overbudget projects.  The time it takes to maneuver a MEWP into place should be less than the time it takes to complete a task and not cause damage in transit.

Zero-Turn Series controls provide more natural, intuitive controls, enabling the operator to become more familiar with the machine, and accomplish their tasks at industry leading rates.
