Toyota Material Handling USA has launched its new AICHI Vertical Mast Lift aerial work platforms to the market.

The AICHI Vertical Mast Lifts feature multi-stage post-style masts providing high lift heights in a compact unit that fits through a standard doorway. They offer platform heights of 12 ft. (3.5 m) and 16 ft. (5 m) with a standard platform extension that provides an additional 15 in. (38 cm) for hard-to-reach locations.

The new AICHI product comes with a zero-degree turn radius for enhanced manoeuvrability and standard non-marking tyres. It also features a dual-motor AC direct drive system that offers precise travel and industry-leading run time. This system eliminates the leaks and maintenance that can be found in the hydraulic drive systems used in other brands. AICHI Vertical Mast Lifts share this system and other parts with the AICHI scissor lift models for convenience of service and maintenance.

The vertical mast lifts also offer an intuitive control handle, anti-rollback functionality, and a tilt alarm, which alerts operators to unsafe working conditions and limits platform movement until proper operation is restored. The lifts come standard with onboard diagnostics and an LCD display/hour meter, eliminating the need for special tools to diagnose any codes.

"We set out to build new work platforms for the construction trades primarily, but these lifts offer a lot more," says Toyota Material Handling senior vice president Tony Miller. "This is an ideal solution for any workspace in which a ladder over 10 ft. (3 m) is needed."
