“We had an issue with gaining access to certain areas of our plant. Working at height in these areas was an ongoing problem for us. Our productivity was hamstrung. We implemented the ReechCraft PowerLift to solve this problem. It has proven to be an effective method of working at height for us. A very helpful product indeed.”

“Finally we have discovered a very safe, efficient and now ‘indispensable’ product to solve all our working at height demands at OzCare. With the ReechCraft PowerLift, we have found that we can now ‘just do it!’. No longer are we experiencing lengthy delays and high costs, through scissor lift and scaffold hire. The PowerLift is so light, portable and so easy. The fact that just one man can push it from job to job and operate the PowerLift by themselves is just fantastic. It’s a game changer.”
