Specialized Equipment for the Safe and Reliable Lifting of Personnel and Their Tools or Equipment, Bringing the Worker to the Work

Personnel safety is Autoquip's top priority. Our experienced technical staff and design engineers have designed numerous custom solutions for lifts that carry personnel in compliance with the requirements of ANSI MH29.1 - Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissors Lifts.  By code Autoquip Lifts are considered Work Access Lifts.  Autoquip does not manufacture the steerable-type aerial work platform lifts (ANSI A92) or elevator-style lifts (ASME A17.1).

We offer high-quality, long-lasting custom equipment solutions for a wide range of work safety platforms applications that are common to almost every industry, including lifting an operator and his tools for part assembly, maintenance, inspection, painting, etc.; raising or lowering a loaded fork truck or pallet jack from one elevation to another; and streamlining the inventory picking process by raising and lowering a worker with his desk and computer with elevated work platforms.  

Autoquip and recently acquired American Lifts employ extensive databases of standard and customized personnel work safety platform lift designs to meet the new equipment requirements of your particular industrial platforms application.

  • Typical lifting and handling solutions that Autoquip has designed and manufactured for work platform applications include:

    High Travel Work Platform Lifts Fixed and portable scissors lifts, with and without adjustable shuttle decks, to provide assembly personnel with tools variable vertical and lateral access to all surfaces of an aircraft wing during assembly and inspection.

    Parts Picking Lifts High-travel scissors lifts, both stationary and mobile, designed to safely raise and lower personnel, desk, and computer while picking parts from an adjoining parts storage rack.

    Lightweight Personnel Work Platforms Fixed and portable scissors lifts with aluminum decks and guardrails reduce overall weight for ease of manual positioning by personnel.

    Paint Booth Lifts Portable or fixed hydraulic scissors lifts with explosion-proof controls, personnel guard rails and interlocked swing gates positions workers during the painting and finishing process.

    Witness Chair Lifts Low profile hydraulic scissors lifts are used in court rooms to raise disabled or handicapped witnesses from ground level to judge.

    Dock Lift Pit-mounted scissors lifts at the dock area raise a pallet jack and person to truck bed height for unloading delivery trucks, then lower them to dock height for receipt into inventory.

    Outdoor High Travel Elevated Work Platforms Vertical ram lift with fiberglass handrails and personnel gates raises technicians and their tools to an elevated radar tower.
