The LiftPod is an Affordable and More Capable Alternative to Ladders


JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, introduced recently its new LiftPod. It combines the portability of a ladder with the stability of a work platform.

"This remarkable new personal lift fills the gap that has existed, until now, between traditional work platforms and ladders," said Jeff Ford, product parent, JLG Industries. "Maintenance engineers, facility managers and contractors can transport the LiftPod like a ladder and have the stability of a work platform, using both hands to perform their jobs to increase efficiency and safety. Plus, it improves quality of work by eliminating the hassles associated with walking up and down a ladder."

With an enclosed platform and 4,3 m working height, the LiftPod provides greater stability than ladders and allows workers to move within the basket, hands-free, helping to increase safety. The platform contains a work tray to carry tools and materials, increasing productivity and quality of work.

The LiftPod is easily portable between sites in a truck and around the work site on wheels. Each module of LiftPod can be carried and moved by one person, and it can be assembled in less than 30 seconds. It is low maintenance and lightweight; each of the three LiftPod modules weighs about 23 kg for simple disassembly and transfer. LiftPod elevation is controlled by a battery-operated drill or an optional battery pack for increased flexibility and affordability
