Scissor Lift Trolleys – Powered Lift and Drive+ Add to Quote Request
These battery-powered devices are fitted with a power drive and power lift functions capable of loads up to 800kg. An extension of our Cagemate and Turnmate powered drive platform trolleys.
Liftmate is a powerful unit with the drive wheels at the front of the trolley. Features include variable speed control, safety back-off belly button and reversing beeper.
Ultimate has all the features of the Liftmate with added manoeuvrability. The drive wheels are in the centre of the trolley allowing it to pivot and turn with ease. The trolley can easily spin on the spot! It can handle corners, corridors, small spaces, hospitals and offices are no problem!
Drivemate is the king of the castle with a capacity of up to 800kg and lifting to 850mm. The tiller steering arm adds a point of difference from the others.
All units are supplied complete with batteries and a smart charger. It is possible to disengage the drive unit on each model, allowing the trolley to be manually pushed. For added safety, we can add a protective skirt around the scissor mechanism.
All functions are actioned from the control console mounted on the handle. The controls include a key switch that allows the device to be turned off and locked to prevent unwanted operation. A battery gauge allows the operator to constantly monitor the battery level. The trolley is fitted with an intelligent electronic controller that monitors all the device signal inputs and operator control signals. The controller is always monitoring the connection of all items in the circuit and is capable of self-diagnosing any faulty components. A red LED is illuminated in the centre of the console to confirm the power is on and that no faults are present.
The platform is raised and lowered by the onboard hydraulic system, providing a powerful and fast lift speed. The functions are controlled by simple push-buttons on the console for platform UP and platform DOWN. The trolley remains still and parked when the trolley is switched off or the battery power is disconnected (charging for example). This is due to the electronic braking feature that is always applied in a safety scenario. It is possible to release the electronic brake using a small lever fitted to the drive axle. This allows the trolley to be manually pushed as opposed to using the power drive function. It is possible to manually push the trolley for short periods by pushing a button on the side of the control console. This is an electronic release of the brake and allows the operator the opportunity to push the trolley manually when required (precise positioning for example).
The forward and reverse drive functions are controlled using the red ‘thumb wheel’ throttle controls while the maximum speed can be adjusted using the speed limit dial on the top face. The maximum speed is equal to a brisk walking pace. The operator always has control over the speed due to the throttle design. If the operator lets go of the throttle the trolley will come to a stop quickly but not abruptly. The electric brake will then be applied and the trolley will remain stationary for complete safety. The front face of the console is fitted with a large red E-stop that serves as a belly-button for safety. Should the operator find themselves wedged between the trolley and an object (a wall for example) the belly-button will stop the reverse travel and prevent the operator from being pinned by the trolley.
