Aerial lifts are simply hydraulic platforms for lifting a person or people. They come in many sizes and varieties. Man lifts are a specialized type of aerial lift, designed to lift a person straight up. They’re increasingly called “vertical personnel lifts, or vertical mast lifts” but most people still call them man lifts
Man Lifts are smaller and less expensive than the bigger and more versatile boom lifts and scissor lifts.
Man lifts come in many different sizes. There are man lifts that can reach anywhere from 10 to 100 feet.
Most vertical mast lifts are only made to carry one person at a time. This may make these lifts unsuitable for some jobs, so be sure to check your jobs requirements and the lifts capabilities before renting one.
Look for lifts that are designed compactly so they can be used in congested areas or narrow aisles that require a tight turning radius. Also be aware of where you will be using your lift. Most man lifts are made for indoor use, so if you plan on using it outdoors make sure the model that you choose is capable of getting the job done.
