Push-around personnel lift

Custom Equipment introduces the PA-1030 Hy-Brid Lift for increased safety and productivity.

Custom Equipment LLC introduces the all-new PA-1030 push-around lift as a safer and more productive alternative to ladders and scaffolding. The PA-1030 easily enables users to manually maneuver the unit into place and hydraulically raise and lower to the desired work height.

Hy-Brid Lifts introduces the all-new PA-1030 push-around lift as a safer and more productive alternative to ladders and scaffolding. 

The push-around lift segment is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing segments of lifts as maintenance and safety managers look for more effective ways to provide increased safety and productivity in applications where ladders and scaffolding are commonly used, such as general construction, facility maintenance and manufacturing.

The new lift is part of Hy-Brid Lifts’ recent introduction of the company’s next generation of lifts. Hy-Brid Lifts designed the new line — comprised of the Push-Around Series (PA Series), Pro Series (PS Series) and Zero-Turn Series (ZT Series) — to better align with individual user needs and to simplify the selection process.

 “Contractors use these lifts every day, so we don’t waste any opportunity to include features that make their workdays better,” says Terry Dolan, Hy-Brid Lifts president and CEO. “The PA-1030 includes convenience- and safety-boosting features sure to improve productivity and ease of use.”

The PA-1030 is designed to improve safety on the jobsite, something that will benefit rental centers and end users. Falls from a ladder remain a top cause of injury on the worksite, most commonly occurring because of improper ladder use. Low-level lifts provide more capacity and a smaller footprint than ladders.

The new lift includes convenience features to improve productivity for professional operators. The PA-1030 features a tool tray, parts holder, USB ports, improved rear casters and a see-through front board for better visibility.

Users will find reduced fatigue and improved safety by eliminating the repetitive climbing of ladder and scaffold rungs. A large work platform boosts productivity, allowing for ample room for the operator, tools and materials. The auto-lock brakes and total-lock rear casters prevent unintended movement, increasing safety. In addition, users will experience improved stability and reduced platform movement with the robust scissor stack and oversized pins. Finally, navigation through a tight workspace is made easy thanks to the PA Series lifts’ compact size and lightweight design.

The PA-1030 features a 10-foot platform height and a 16-foot working height. The platform is 41 inches long by 20.5 inches wide, and the total stowed height is only 69 inches.

All Hy-Brid Lifts are heavy-duty, safe and lightweight, with low wheel loads that allow users to maneuver them over delicate floors and get onto green concrete sooner. They are USA-made with high-grade steel, and all feature non-marking tires and a low step-in height. All lifts are covered by a two-year parts and labor warranty and a five-year structural warranty.
