HB To Pro Series

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EARLY MODEL HY-BRID LIFTS AND THE 2020 PRO SERIES?

We took a hard look at our HB Series 2 scissor lifts, talked to our customers and other trade professionals that use Hy-Brid Lifts, then tasked our engineers with bringing Hy-Brid Lifts up to standard A92.20 while incorporating all of the feedback we received.  We ended up making over 30 changes to the old model, including a new paint job.  If you haven't seen the new models yet, this is what we did...

STANDARD
2-YEAR WARRANTY

General

Standard Warranty

We are confident our machines are rental tough, so we have increased our warranty to two years on all products to provide extra value and reduce cost of ownership.

EXPANDED
PRODUCT LINE

General

Expanded Product Line

When updating the product line for the new ANSI standards, we decided to add an additional product to the lineup, the PS-1930. This unit has all the same features and benefits of the PS-1030 and PS-1430, while increasing the working height to 25ft and the ability to fit through a standard door without folding rails.

ADDED LEAKGUARD™
FLUID CONTAINMENT SYSTEM

Base

LeakGuard

More and more jobsites are requiring diapers on scissor lifts to protect the flooring, so we developed LeakGuard to eliminate the need for diapers in the unlikely case a leak occurs. Our solution is the only fluid containment system that can contain 110% of all fluid onboard. Additionally, the machine was designed to only need one easily accessible single tray.

LARGER, RUBBER NON-MARKING
WHEELS

Base

Larger Wheels

The wheel size was increased providing a smoother ride for operators, increased ground clearance, increased grip for ramps, and reduced floorloads.

HIGHER
LIFT CAPACITIES

General

Higher Lift Capacities

All Pro Series scissor lifts had their maximum platform capacities increased. The new standard added load sensing which stops all machine functions once the platform capacity is reached. Having a higher capacity allows operators to take more material up with them at one time keeping them productive longer.

NEW
CONTOLS

Platform

New Controls

The new controls feature a diagnostics display, indoor/outdoor selection and movement controls, making operation and maneuvering the lifts easier than ever for operators.

Features:

  • Watertight
  • Phone cord cable
  • Main cable to controls metal connector
  • Live load sense
  • Diagnostics
  • Battery status
  • Indoor/outdoor
  • Horn

NEW
MOTORS

Base

New Drive Motors

The motors were changed from a parallel shaft gearbox to a planetary gearbox design increasing durability, efficiency, torque, and power. All this equates to longer runtimes, increased jobsite maneuverability, and less downtime.

EZ GLIDE
SLIDE OUT

Platform

Pro Series Slide Out

The slide out has been redesigned to significantly reduce the amount of force required to extend the slide out.

 

RIGID
SLIDE OUT

Platform

Pro Series Rigid Slide Out

The steel used on the slide out has been thickened to provide greater operator comfort.

6 INCH
TOE BOARDS

Platform

Pro Series 6 Inch Toe Boards

The toe boards have increased from 4in to 6in including a toe board on the full swing door to increase safety around the scissor lift by minimizing the chance of tools and materials falling off the platform.

STANDARD POWER-TO-PLATFORM

Platform

Standard Power to Platform

Power to platform is now a standard feature, increasing the productivity for the operator.

FULL HEIGHT SWING DOOR

Platform

Full Height Swing Door

The full height swing door now includes a toe board to prevent tools and material from falling off the platform. Unlike other manufacturers our door is a full height door preventing operators from having to duck under the top bar.

CANTILEVER ENTRY DOOR

Platform

Cantilever Entry Door

The toe board on the door lifts up when opening the door to float over material on the platform minimizing the chance of the door jamming.

SPRING ACTUATED ENTRY DOOR

Platform

Pro Series Spring Actuated Door

The polyurethane band has been replaced with a spring to close the door. This minimized the amount of service from operator damage.

NO-FOLDING
RAILS

Platform

Pro Series No Fold Rails

All Hy-Brid Lifts are designed to be compact, eliminating the need for folding rails. Read more about the costs of folding rails.

CYLINDER INTEGRATED MANIFOLD BLOCK 

Scissors

Cylinder Integrated Manifold

The manifold block is now incorporated into the cylinder, allowing easier maintenance and fewer opportunities for failure.

INCREASED CROSS PLATING

Scissors

Pro Series Scissor Cross Plating

Additional cross plating between scissor beams has been added, providing a more rigid scissor stack. The more rigid scissor stack reduces sway on the platform.

NEW
SCISSOR PINS

Scissors

Pro Series New Scissor Pins

The scissor pin has been redesigned to simplify pre-inspection checking of snap rings while also making the scissors more rigid, reducing scissor sway.

EXTERNAL MAINTENANCE LOCKS

Scissors

Pro Series Dual Maintenance Locks

Dual maintenance locks have been attached to the scissors for quick and simple access. Users do not have to reach into the scissor stack area to engage the locks providing increased safety. While one maintenance lock is sufficient, we added a second one to prevent the scissor stack from twisting which simplifies service.

TRACK
TENSIONER

Scissors

Pro Series Track Tensioner

To further increase the rigidity of the scissor stack, we added a track tensioner on to the base frame. This helps keep the scissor rollers from slightly lifting which further reduces in scissor sway on the platform.

EXTERNAL
E-DOWN

Base

Pro Series E-Down Cable

The emergency down is now located on the aft portion of the scissor lift and is easy to access, reducing the reaction time needed in the event of emergency.

 

KEY
SWITCH

Base

Pro Series Key Switch

Updated key switch features default upper controls.  After using the lower controls, the key automatically switches back to the upper controls. You never have to remember to switch it back before stepping into the platform, saving time.

IMPROVED TIE-DOWN POINTS

Base

Pro Series Updated Tie Downs

The updated positioning of our tie-down points makes it easier to secure Pro Series scissor lifts to open trailers for transport.  The new design leaves less room for play during transit when tied-down with chains.

ROBUST
STEP

Base

Pro Series Robust Step

We made our steps robust enough that they double as additional rear tie-down points.  We also replaced the non skid strip with grated metal texture integrated into the step for better traction over time.

NEW TURNING MECHANISM

Base

Pro Series Updated Steering

The new turning mechanism on our Pro Series scissor lifts reduces the inside turning radius to 8 in.  An 8 in turning radius increases the maneuvering capabilities of our Pro Series scissor lifts.

NEW MOTOR CONTROLLER

Base

New Motor Controller

Already in use on our Zero-Turn Series scissor lifts, the TS-100 motor controller enables us to add more features to our Pro Series scissor lifts like new, can bus upper controls, telematics, improve diagnostics, and more!

HIGHER GROUND CLEARANCE

Base

Pro Series Ground Clearance

2020 Pro Series scissor lifts have a higher ground clearance.  This feature allows the lift to get over trailer breaks and reduces the odds of getting stuck on jobsite obstacles.  Paired with more powerful drive motors and wheels with better traction, Pro Series scissor lifts are easier to transport and use.

BATTERY DISCONNECT COMBINED WITH E-STOP

Base

Pro Series Battery Disconnect E-Stop

The battery disconnect/e-stop reduces the number of individual parts needed for the lower controls on 2020 Hy-Brid Lifts Pro Series scissor lifts.  The new part is easy to use and made of robust, durable materials.

INTEGRATED PTP/CHARGE PORTS

Base

Pro Series Recessed Ports

The power-to-platform and charger ports, located on the aft portion of the scissor lift, are now recessed into the base.  Recessing the ports provides a greater level of protection from job site damage.  Each port also has a cap that is attached, adding extra protection from dust and debris.

NEW
CHARGER

Base

Faster Charging

Our new charger is capable of charging 2020 Hy-Brid Lifts 50% faster than previous models.  Less time spent charging translates to more time being utilized.  This feature pairs well with our electric powered drive

NEW
POTHOLE ACTUATOR

Base

Pro Series Updated Pothole Actuator

Updated design provides greater support to the pothole actuator during elevation and descent of the scissor lift.  This update reduces the risk of the pothole actuator bending over time, requiring replacement.

ELECTRONIC BRAKE RELEASE

Base

All 2020 Hy-Brid Lifts have been updated with electronic brake release.  The internal electronic brake release eliminates the risk of an external brake release being damaged.
