Spotlight on…Mast Lifts

What is a mast lift?

Mast lifts are vertical powered access platforms, similar to push around vertical lifts but with the added benefit that the batteries which operate the vertical lift function also provide the ability to drive the machine in all directions.

Mast Lifts are an innovative type of boom lift, often included in types of low-level access. They are a powered access platform that moves up and down a vertical mast to provide access at height.

The benefits of mast lifts

Access to narrow, confined areas

One of the biggest benefits to using a vertical mast lift is that it allows you to access tight, confined spaces. Easy to manoeuvre around aisles, machinery and storage units easily.

Compact solution

When not being used, vertical mast lifts are very compact and can be stored easily. In addition, they are very lightweight which makes them easy to manoeuvre, transport, and store.

Mast lifts have compact chassis enabling them to be versatile working indoors and out. They are highly maneuverable, making them ideal for operation in restricted spaces typically encountered in offices, retail stores, hotels, public buildings or crowded industrial aisles where a traditional scissor or boom lift is unable to work.

All mast lifts are powered electrically, which helps when working indoors and in tight narrow spaces thanks to zero emissions.

JMS has invested in mast lifts to meet the ever-growing needs of their customers who need reliable machines that can increase productivity on worksites.
