Modern Work Truck Solutions - December 2017

Designed to eliminate the back-breaking labor of loading and unloading a crew’s heavy tools from their truck, Vanair Mobile Power Solutions ETL-500 Electric Tool Lift raises as many as three pneumatic tools—weighing up to 500 lbs—at a time. With the ETL-500 on board, tools can be transported to a jobsite and then safely lifted from the truck to ground level. The ETL-500 connects to its vehicle’s battery for power, eliminating the need for a hydraulic system. Because the unit’s actuator has a compact design, it is easily incorporated into the frame of the lift, leaving more room in the bed of the vehicle, or in a compartment.
