Custom Equipment's New Hy-Brid Lift

The new push-around HB-P1027 low-level scissor lift by Custom Equipment is lightweight and features a zero-turn radius for easy maneuverability around tight corners and through confined spaces. Maintenance technicians and contractors can use the HB-P1027 for a variety of projects at working heights up to 16 feet, including electrical, plumbing, drywall and HVAC.

CE New p 1027The lift’s platform is 22 inches wide and 37 inches long to give users ample working area and easy maneuverability through nearly any doorway. The ANSI/CSA-compliant HB-P1027 lifts as much as 550 pounds, which allows operators to safely move their materials and tools to elevated worksites.

The HB-P1027 weighs 870 pounds and its wheels help distribute its weight and provide wheel loads as low as 250.3 psi to to maneuver over fragile flooring with minimal risk for damage. Users also can get onto poured concrete several days sooner with the HB-P1027 lift than with heavier competitive models.

The hydraulic system is completely self-contained and has only two connection points, helping provide a clean system for operating indoors in either finished or unfinished environments. Scissor stack features oversized,1.25-inch pins to enhance stability and reduce scissor sway.

Safety features include entry height of 27.8 inches for easy access to the platform.The company also incorporated the step into the lift’s frame, which minimizes the lift’s overall length. The access gate swings completely open to allow users to step up and into the platform. Users can load heavy, awkward materials such as drywall by simply walking up and onto the platform instead of lifting the materials over a bar or chain.

Custom Equipment designed the HB-P1027 for easy maintenance. Its scissor stack operates smoothly to minimize platform bouncing and doesn’t require greasing. The lift is equipped with an absorbent glass mat (AGM) battery that makes the unit virtually maintenance free because it never requires users to add water. The HB-P1027 also features a self-regulating charger that prevents the battery from over-charging, which shortens the lifespan of other rechargeable batteries.
