Custom Equipment's Hy-Brid HB-830 low-level scissor lift is constructed to provide a safer alternative to ladders
Custom Equipment's Hy-Brid HB-830 low-level scissor lift has been designed with a longer platform. The all-purpose lift is designed to hold a capacity of 500 pounds. The unit also is made with a zero turn radius for maneuverability in confined spaces.
The HB-830’s platform is made 25.5 inches wide and 55.75 inches long, is designed to accommodate two people at a time and provide them ample working space. It also is made with a 30-inch slide-out extension for greater area. The extension is built to have a capacity of 250 pounds and is supported by the lift’s midrail. The HB-830 unit is made with dual front wheels designed to help distribute the machine’s weight and provide lower wheel loads. Paired with its lightweight design, the unit is made to work on delicate flooring, including tile, laminate, raised floors and mezzanines with much lower potential for damage. The HB-830 lift is made to be heavy-duty, safe and lightweight, with low wheel loads so users can maneuver them over delicate floors and get onto green concrete sooner.
In addition, the counter-rotating wheels are designed to be able to maneuver over tile or carpeting without marking or causing tears. Custom Equipment also made the unit with rounded corners to minimize inadvertent damage to walls. The lift’s zero-turn radius is constructed to have precise turns around tight corners. The HB-830’s hydraulic system is made with two connection points. The Hy-Brid HB-830’s platform is operated up and down by the unit’s hydraulics, while the electrical drive and steering systems are constructed to be powered by two 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries. This is designed to allow the unit’s battery power to last 10-16 hours.
Custom Equipment uses state-of-the-art technology to test its designs before building all of its lifts, including the HB-830. This testing process allows the company to use a high-grade of steel, and because it is stronger, less material is required and the lifts weigh less than competitive machines. In addition, the process identifies stress points so they can be reinforced without adding a lot of unnecessary weight. Custom Equipment also builds its lifts with robust scissor stacks that feature oversized, 1.25-inch pins to reduce scissor sway and enhance stability. The HB-830 also is equipped with a tilt sensor that alerts operators if loads become unbalanced so they can make adjustments and minimize the risk of tipping.
The HB-830 also provides safer, easier access to the platform with an entry height of 18 inches. The HB-830 also is designed to have an access gate that swings completely open so users can step up and onto the platform. Users can load materials like drywall and lumber for framing by walking up and onto the platform. In addition to greater safety compared to other lifts, the HB-830 is constructed to provide a safer, more efficient alternative to ladders and other manual methods commonly used to perform maintenance and industrial work in low-level-access areas.
Finally, the HB-830 lift is designed to be easy to maintain. It features an on-board battery charger that self monitors the current and stops it once the battery is fully charged. Custom Equipment also offers optional absorbent glass mat (AGM) batteries that are designed to never require users to add water.
