Success with a Ladders Last Approach


Equipment Finders, Inc. (EFI), a Nashville-based construction equipment rental center, expanded its product offering by introducing a fleet of push-around scissor lifts from Hy-Brid Lifts. EFI’s introduction of these lifts, which included the new PA-1030, was initially based on a request from one of their largest customers. The PA-1030 is part of the Hy-Brid Lifts Push-Around Series that was recently introduced to the market.

"The demand for these machines was originally fueled from general contractors’ efforts to create a safer work zone on jobsites. We have been renting Hy-Brid Lift units for many years, and when they introduced the new PA-1030, we felt it was a natural progression to add these machines to our fleet given those current safety trends."

Hy-Brid Lifts' Push-Around series lifts offer increased safety over ladders

The company agreed many customers are getting on board with the ladders last mentality. “Replacing ladders and scaffolding on jobsites with push-around lifts can result in fewer accidents, additional productivity, and reduced fatigue,” they said in a statement.

“Some contractors are under regulations that require them to use push-around lifts onsite,” Hatcher said. “But now, we believe they're finding that push-around lifts are a better solution for what they're doing than what they've used in the past. They're not just using them because they're forced to; they're choosing the machines as a better solution.”

Hy-Brid Lifts push-around aerial work platforms offer a compact footprint and numerous features. The PA-1030 enables users to manually maneuver the unit into place and hydraulically raise and lower the platform to the desired work height. The equipment features a 10 ft platform height and a 16 ft working height. The platform measures 41 in long by 20.5 in wide, and the total stowed height is only 69 in.

“Electricians, mechanical contractors, and security system contractors are just the beginning of the type of customers who experience the benefits of our push-around lifts,” said Terry Dolan, Hy-Brid Lifts President and CEO. “Users can quickly push and relocate the lift without the hassle of maneuvering a ladder or disassembling and assembling scaffolding. The units increase safety on jobsites, and we are dedicated to developing the safest options for operators. It's great to see that EFI’s customers are realizing the benefits of low-level access.”
