JLG Introduces New LiftPod Personal, Portable Lift
📅 Wed February 16, 2011 - National Edition
The FS60 is the newest addition to the LiftPod line of aerial work platforms, which combines the portability of a ladder with the stability of a work platform.
JLG Industries Inc.’s FS60 LiftPod is ANSI A92.3-2006/CSA B354.1-04 compliant, making it an even more valuable addition to an organization’s work fleet, according to the manufacturer.
The FS60 is the newest addition to the LiftPod line of aerial work platforms, which combines the portability of a ladder with the stability of a work platform. The unit’s 30 in. (76 cm) base enables operators to move the LiftPod through doorways without having to take it apart.
“We listened to our customers and developed the FS60 in response to their requests for a model that can fit through doorways and under eight foot ceilings,” said Randy Marzicola, director – channel development, JLG Industries. “We also added casters to the back wheels, which further improves the mobility and portability of the lift, while increasing efficiency for our customers.”
With an enclosed platform, 12-ft. (3.6 m) working height and 6-ft. (1.8 m) standing height, the FS60 LiftPod allows workers to move hands-free in a 360-degree range of motion. Like other units in the line, the FS60 consists of three lightweight components, each weighing about 50 lbs. (22.6 kg), for simple assembly — less than 30 seconds — and disassembly.
The LiftPod can be carried and moved by one person. When disassembled, the LiftPod fits in the back of a pick-up truck, van or SUV for portability between work sites.
The LiftPod is powered by an 18-volt drill or an optional power pack for increased flexibility and affordability. It also includes an attachable work tray that holds up to 33 lbs. (15 kg) of tools and materials and has a 330-lb. (150 kg) rated total capacity.
The FS-60 LiftPod is designed with an aircraft quality aluminum mast and powder-coated steel base for added strength and durability. Featuring an inward opening gate and manual emergency descent, the LiftPod was engineered with the customer in mind, according to the manufacturer.
