What is a PowerLift?
The PowerLift is an ultra-light and strong push-around lift. It’s the most portable powered lift available for indoor use.
What is PowerTrak™ Technology?
PowerTrak™ is the track our gearboxes use to climb the mast sections. It is a patented drive system which features a specially designed gearbox, coupled to a replaceable steel track.
Is the PowerLift an aerial work platform (AWP)?
Yes, the PowerLift is a type of AWP and a type of Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP), meeting the respective standards for that category of equipment in the various markets ReechCraft serves.
What do I do if I lose power or my battery dies?
A manual crank is provided inside the basket to manually lower the unit. It is recommended to keep an extra battery while operating the PowerLift.

How much does the PowerLift weigh?

PowerLift performs perfectly! We had a major client invite us to a trial along with other Aerial Work Platforms. PowerLift performed perfectly with 27 “solves” out of 27 tests. No other AWP at any price performed as well.
