Use of these aerial lifts will be 90% indoors, hanging lights in theatre setting, changing lights in gyms and bay lighting at fire stations. I am assuming the 500 lb. weight limit is including the operator? Must have safety devices and out riggers. Please submit info ASAP. Would prefer unit has warning light and alarm when in operation. It must fit through standard doorways-3' X 7'. I would prefer power driven at lowered platform height. Extendable only when stationary and outriggers or safety engaged. Thank you

I need a lift that will knuckle and reach at least 50 to 55 ft. I want a lift that is on tracks and will work on soft ground conditions. There is a company called KDL Lifts and Equipment has a lift that is on tracks and weighs 4 times less than the typical JLG boom lift. I have to have a lightweight boom lift because of soft ground conditions and this track lift is much lighter.

I currently have a genie pneumatic lift that I use for moving large, heavy glass panels so that I can switch out ballast and light bulbs. Bottom line is I don’t trust the air power in the lift with such expensive glass. I'd like something better controlled and more precise.

Aerial Lifts Advice

Aerial Lifts Basics

Aerial lifts come in many varieties, from small man lifts that lift one person straight up and down to large cherry pickers with considerable reach and scissor lifts that can raise thousands of pounds.

There are a few simple considerations to be aware of when choosing a scissor lift. The working height you need to reach and the lifting capacity are two of the most basic, so make sure you have that information before you start talking to suppliers.

You'll also need to consider the drive system. For use indoors, electric motors are required, but for outdoor use, gas or diesel engines can provide more power.

Points to consider
